Full video show – LV Cruise 2020 Resort collection | Runway show
Two nights after the Met Gala, Louis Vuitton presented its Resort 2020 collection at a star-studded fashion show at John F. Kennedy Airport’s restored TWA Flight Center building. The structure, designed by Eero Saarinen, built in 1962 and declared a national landmark in 2005, will reopen to the public next week as the buzzed about TWA Hotel. And while the building is a shining example of mid-century modern design, Nicolas Ghesquière’s collection was heavily inspired by the 1980s.

I’m totally in love with this Louis Vuitton cruise collection… So much attitude, so much fun. A glamorous, strong conquerer who’s ready to take the world. When you get your contract renewed and the numbers are great, you can do this kind of things. While I love the wardrobe approach of his early Vuitton collections, I find this new chapter very interesting because it’s very familiar (he has done variations of the 80’s many times in his career) and yet different. It’s very excessive and practical at the same time. The section of the collection that start with the pinstripes dresses and end with the red jersey dress is total perfection and already has a place in my wardrobe right now. There are so many great pieces, so many great accessories! There are options, there are ideas… The trickiest pieces are totally made to order but this has a great potential. With this collection and the previous one, Nicolas won me! It’s great to see his repertoire evolving into something that can still surprise and excite me! Amazing!
