Tchau Brazil and Konnichiwa Japan! Last year, Louis Vuitton showed its Cruise (Resort) 2017 collection at Brazil‘s Oscar Niemeyer’s NiterĂłi Contemporary Art Museum in Rio de Janeiro (see it here). All good things come to an end and it is now time to say goodbye to Brazil because the luxury French house announced that it’s taking its Cruise (Resort) 2018 collection to Kyoto, Japan this May for a runway show at the Miho Museum.

Creative director Nicolas Ghesquière shared the exciting news on his Instagram this morning, saying [the show] “…Will be held in a gigantic woodland” in the space. “The place inspired me right away,” Ghesquière told Vogue exclusively. “After the desert and Palm Springs, the ocean and Rio, I wanted to introduce people to another landscape, to immerse them in a sea of green. With the I. M. Pei’s Miho Museum, we are continuing an architectural voyage that suits the Maison Louis Vuitton to a T. For our 2018 Cruise fashion show we are transported into a tangled web of nature, geographical greatness, and a unique architectural vision.”

This will be Ghesquière’s fourth Resort collection for Vuitton. He’s previously shown in Monaco, Palm Springs, and in Rio de Janeiro. It will broadcast live on LouisVuitton.com May 14.
