The Cour Marly at the Louvre museum.

 FRESH CREAM: Taking a time-out from modernism, Nicolas Ghesquière has chosen a glass-roofed courtyard at the Louvre museum to show his fall Louis Vuitton collection.

All cream-colored stone and dotted with potted trees, the Cour Marly is home to an array of neoclassical sculptures originally commissioned for the gardens of Louis XIV’s country residence, the Château de Marly.

Ghesquière has erected sleek structures to stage ready-to-wear shows in the Cour Carrée outside the Louvre and the Louis Vuitton Foundation, and has a penchant for midcentury architecture as a backdrop for his destination cruise shows.

The brand, owned by LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, has scheduled its show for March 7, the last day of Paris Fashion Week, at 6:30 p.m.
