• CRUISE 2016 SHOW: THE SET

    Discover Bob and Dolores Hope’s house, in Palm Springs - California, the cradle of modernist American architecture in the 1950s and 1970s.

    A legend among Palm Springs estates, the house is famous for its major architectural interest, so characteristic of Desert Modernism. The estate was built to resemble a volcano, with three visor-like arches and an undulating concrete roof, a hole at its center opening a courtyard to the sky.

    “We were immediately taken with this construction. This estate demonstrates an approach that mirrors our own: it is creative above all. It symbolizes just as perfectly the harmonious union between the vision of Nicolas Ghesquière and the iconic spirit of the Maison Louis Vuitton” explains Michael Burke, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Louis Vuitton.

    For Nicolas Ghesquière, whose influences are rooted into design and architecture, the house is “a symbolic landmark that has inspired me ever since I first saw it. I am delighted to present my Cruise 16 collection in this remarkable setting.”
