The Louis Vuitton Cruise Collection 2015 was photographed by Juergen Teller at the Paris Headquarters and on location in Monaco.
“This Cruise collection goes off the beaten track, explores transformation in clothing. Somehow still, these clothes remain associated with the idea of everyday attire. Always with a timesless will.” These words taken from the Cruise 2015 lookbook, allude to the avid and intemporal casual quality to the collection which was presented earlier this year in the South of France.
It was Nicolas Ghesquière's first Cruise collection as Artistic Director of Louis Vuitton women's collections. The choice to present it on the French Riviera recalls the origins of the Louis Vuitton legend on the Côte d'Azur where the arts of travel and luxury were first united.
