Continuing in fashion's globe-trotting cruise collections, Nicolas Ghesquière staged Louis Vuitton's Resort 2018 show with a truly spectacular runway in Kyoto, Japan.
Held at the picturesque, I.M. Pei-designed Miho Museum, Louis Vuitton unveiled its new collection atop a metal bridge overlooking the Shigaraki mountains. Models entered through a metal tunnel and walked across a suspension bridge, making for a never-before-seen runway moment.

Six Things To Note From The Louis Vuitton Resort Show

1020

Paying Tribute To Yamamoto
 

In Louis Vuitton's 2018 cruise collection artistic director Nicolas Ghesquière paid tribute to emblematic Japanese designer and artist Kansai Yamamoto, famous for having made an extensive number of David Bowie's costumes but also for the being the first Japanese designer to show in Paris and for reinventing the kimono in avant-garde form for a modern audience. Yamamoto especially created icons and symbols to decorate new accessories and leather goods.

The Setting Was Everything
 

Three-quarters of the Miho Museum, where the resort extravaganza was staged, is underground and was designed by I. M. Pei, the same architect who conceived the Louvre's Grand Pyramid in Paris.

Jaden Smith And Sasha Lane’s Sky-High Ponytails Are a Win At Louis Vuitton

00-holding-sasha-jaden-lv
Despite the sheer number of stars that turned up at the Louvre tonight to see Louis Vuitton’s Fall 2017 collection—Michelle Williams! Sophie Turner!—one front row pair drew the lion’s share of camera flashes with a scene-stealing hair strategy that may or may not have been planned: Jaden Smith and Sasha Lane, who arrived at the show with mirror-image high ponytails. Lane pulled her waist-grazing dreadlocks straight up to the top of her head in an I Dream of Jeannie move and secured them with a citron yellow scrunchie that matched her printed coat. Smith’s strands were similarly twisted upward but strategically arranged to fall over his face in a deceptively casual manner. Apart, they struck front row gold; together, they made...

Get a First Look At The Louis Vuitton x Supreme Collaboration

landscape-1484833163-d5-4937-12-j1

After much hype–and many leaks–on social media, Louis Vuitton's rumored collaboration with iconic New York streetwear brand Supreme finally debuted today.
The French fashion house revealed the co-branded designs at the men's fall 2017 runway show in Paris. "You can't have the conversation of New York men's wear without Supreme right now, because it's such a massive global phenomenon," Kim Jones, Vuitton's men's artistic director, told WWD. "I used to work when I was at college unpacking boxes of Supreme at a company in London that distributed it when I was just starting out, so it's something I've known all along in my life."

New year, new designer shake-ups! Chloé is the latest to garner buzz about a creative changing of the guard, as Natacha Ramsay-Levi is set to take her place as the iconic French fashion house's new creative director, according to a Reuters report.
Ramsay-Levi is currently second-in-command to Louis Vuitton Creative Director Nicolas Ghesquière, which means there will be changes at both brands. Previously, she worked with Ghesquière for more than a decade when he helmed Balenciaga, starting with a 2002 internship that had her "cook coffee and sort documents," as told to Germany's Interview. This is just the latest in the industry's musical chairs game, which saw a lot of change in 2016 at Balenciaga, Hugo Boss, and Yves Saint Laurent.

What To Know About Chloé’s New Creative Director

landscape-1483555552-hbz-chloe-index
Chloé is reportedly in the process of naming a new creative director after news that Claire Waight Keller—who has helmed the brand since 2011—chose not to renew her contract, which ends in March. Her successor is expected to be Natacha Ramsay-Levi, Nicolas Ghesquière's "second-in-command" at Louis Vuitton, according to Reuters. Sources say Waight Keller decided not to renew her contract since she and her family moved from Paris (where the Chloé headquarters are located) to London in June and she wished to stop commuting between the two cities. The change follows creative director change-ups at brands like DKNY, Carven and Marni, in the latest round of designer musical chairs. Ramsay-Levi's looming appointment may raise questions on how the Louis Vuitton designer, who has...
