Nicolas Ghesquière presented Louis Vuitton’s Cruise 2022 runway show at Axe Majeur, a monumental architectural masterpiece near Paris. A collection of 45 proud, positive looks advance straight ahead, with harmony with an environment that is so close and yet so far away, borderless and open to adventure.
With the 2022 Cruise collection, Louis Vuitton steps into this singular geometry, from the “Ile Astronomique” to “Le Douze Colonnes” and “Le Jardin des Droits de l’Homme,” culminating in “La Passerelle,” opening as many imaginary portals to traverse the atmosphere and — why not? — touch infinity. An optimistic company akin to luminous “marching bands” of joyful color.
Axe Majeur, near Paris, transforms a promenade into fantastical reveries. A sculpture conceived like a beautiful utopia, by a humanist artist whose compassionate, peaceful works are scattered around around the world. An architecture of reconciliation, where water, light, wind, sand, concrete, stone, and steel create a felicitous relationship between nature, space, and time. – from Louis Vuitton.
