This season the Louis Vuitton Cruise show was held in Japan’s capital, Kyoto was creative director Nicolas Ghesquiére’s fourth Cruise collection for the famed French brand. And it was pretty spectacular…It was played out at the incredible backdrop of the Miho Museum, in south east Kyoto. The catwalk was set on a beautiful bridge surrounded by forest…dreamy right?
The museum designed by architect I. M. Pei, was made to evoke Shangri-la – heaven on earth…A lot like how we’d describe Love The Lot Boutique 😉
The main feel of the show was a fusion of East vs West with classical Japanese influenced prints, contrasting with leather coats, animal prints and cowboy boots with every. single. look.
The kabuki make-up included thick eye flicks and bold brows on every model, some with bright warrior stripes, striking model’s cheekbones. Where ever a statement could be made…it was.
For Louis Vuitton Cruise 2018, Ghesquiére said he was inspired by the 1970s film, ‘Stray Cat Rock,’ which is about a gang of women on motorcycles – which explains the biker jackets and cowboy boots; mixed in with the strong Japanese kabuki influence.
We think it’s safe to say the cowgirl trend is the biggest trend for next summer – just look at Dior’s Cruise show to confirm it. It looks like we will be stocking cowboy boots next season!
