GOING COASTAL: Nicolas Ghesquière has selected a more classic — and nearby — holiday destination for Louis Vuitton’s next cruise show: the French Riviera. Vuitton has set May 28 as the date for its next itinerant fashion spectacle. The French luxury giant confirmed the locale to WWD, but said the exact location would be revealed at a later date.
Ghesquière tends to gravitate to striking modernist buildings. Last year, the fashion pack trekked one hour outside of Kyoto, Japan, to the Miho Museum, a stunning mountaintop venue designed by I.M. Pei. The year before that, it was the Niterói Contemporary Art Museum — a futuristic landmark in Rio de Janeiro by celebrated Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer.
