Louis Vuitton may be new to the far-flung fashion show game, but it’s certainly making up for lost time: The French house’s Cruise 2018 collection, perhaps Nicolas Ghesquière’s strongest work yet, was presented in Japan on Sunday.
The brand took over the I.M. Pei-designed Miho Museum, situated an hour outside of Kyoto, for the runway presentation. Typical of Ghesquière’s work at Louis Vuitton thus far, the collection features plenty of strong angles, layered prints and fabrics and covetable accessories. But the part of the collection bound to make the biggest impression are the pieces born from Ghesquière’s collaboration with Japanese designer Kansai Yamamoto. The sequined dresses and illustrated bags are sure to inspire wait-lists before the collection even hits stores.
