In the Veneto region of Northern Italy, Louis Vuitton’s Fiesso d’Artico shoemaking workshop is a haven of calm and luxury. Here, expert hands lay an array of desirable designs at our feet. Stand by for a guided tour.
For the presentation of its second Cruise collection, Louis Vuitton is travelling to Palm Springs, California.
The show will be broadcast live on May 6th at 6:15pm Pacific Time (PT) in an exclusive setting: The Bob and Dolores Hope Estate, a Palm Springs landmark, designed by the great modernist architect John Lautner.
Sitting on the top of Southridge and overlooking the entire Coachella Valley, this iconic and futuristic estate is hosting a fashion show for the first time in its history.
Considered as the largest private estate in Palm Springs, it was designed by John Lautner, a renowned architect whose work in Southern California is celebrated for its technical prowess and spectacular, sensual and progressive lines. A legend among Palm Springs estates, it is also famous for its major architectural interest, so characteristic of Desert Modernism.

He is Louis Vuitton’s soul-mate. With his camera and his boyhood dreams slung over his shoulder, Jean Larivière wandered around the globe on a quest for the elusive ideal image – one that captures water, earth, sky… and the spirit of travel. Portrait of an alchemist and adventurer.
