Louis Vuitton chose the Miho Museum, designed by I.M. Pei, the architect of the Grand Louvre and its pyramids in Paris, for its fourth Cruise Collection under designer Nicolas Ghesquière.
Nestled in a hidden valley, the museum is revealed through a spectacular metal tunnel and a futuristic suspension bridge. This unique home to more than a thousand works of art, blends exoticism with modernity, while steeped in the most luscious forest.
"After the desert and Palm Springs, the ocean and Rio, I wanted to introduce people to another landscape, to immerse them in a sea of green" explains Nicolas Ghesquière, Artistic Director of Women's Collections at Louis Vuitton.
"With the I.M. Pei's Miho Museum we are continuing an architectural voyage that suits the Maison Louis Vuitton to a tee. For our 2018 Cruise fashion show we are transported into a tangled web of nature, geographical greatness and a unique architectural vision."
