Louis Vuitton will travel to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to mark its third Cruise collection presentation.

    The Cruise collection will be held on Saturday 28th May in an exclusive setting: the Niterói Contemporary Art Museum (MAC). A landmark building in Brazil, designed by celebrated Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer.

    The iconic building, shaped like a flying saucer that looks like it has landed on the side of a hill overlooking Guanabara Bay, facing Rio, was built in 1991 and inaugurated in 1996. The white modernist structure is reflected in a pool surrounding its cylindrical base, “like a flower”, as the famed architect described it. The Louis Vuitton Cruise presentation marks the first time the museum has ever hosted a fashion show and also serves as an occasion to celebrate the museum’s 20th anniversary and its reopening to the public following a major renovation project.

    "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" explains Nicolas Ghesquière, Artistic Director of Women’s Collections at Louis Vuitton.

    The Louis Vuitton Cruise show will be broadcast live on May 28th on www.louisvuitton.com. #LVCRUISE

    A closer look at selected details and season signatures from Nicolas Ghesquière’s Autumn-Winter 2016 collection, as seen from the front row.

    They say that culture is what remains when everything else has been forgotten. The same goes for fashion culture. This autumn-winter collection moves through time dissolving the borders of memory. It is a wardrobe that affectionately revisits the past, invents a confident present and defines a fluid mutable future.

    Photographer Tommy Ton let you take a closer look to really appreciate the details and refinement within a Louis Vuitton collection.
