Yesterday, Nicolas Ghesquière confirmed via Instagram that the location for the next LV’s cruise show, to be presented in May, will be staged at the spectacular Niterói Museum in Rio de Janeiro, designed by Oscar Niemeyer and which hosts artworks by artists including Alex Flemming. This is such a good idea and we wonder why it hadn’t been done before!

“This setting inspired me right away. Following the Bob and Dolores Hope estate designed by John Lautner in Palm Springs, California, we continue the architectural journey that is so particular to the Maison Louis Vuitton,” said Ghesquière “It’s about being transported into a relationship where nature, geography and architecture come together in the vision of a great architect, as was the case with John Lautner. With the 2017 Cruise collection, we’ll be discovering the vision of Oscar Niemeyer.”
