Under the patronage of and in the presence of HSH Princess Charlene of Monaco, the second collection created by Nicolas Ghesquière for Louis Vuitton will be shown on Sunday, 18 May at 3am (Sydney Time) and will be broadcast live, on louisvuitton.com, from the exceptional Palace Square on ‘The Rock’.
"I am particularly pleased to welcome Louis Vuitton’s Cruise show to Monaco’s Palace Square, and to discover Nicolas Ghesquière’s collection," says HSH Princess Charlene of Monaco. Overlooking the principality, the Palace square is its true heart and soul, home to its famous changing of the Carabinieri guard. This will be the first time in its long history that the mythical square hosts a fashion show.
Louis Vuitton has long held links with the Cote d’Azur and returns to its legendary roots in the Art of Travel, luxury and escapism with this first show of a Cruise collection.
"The first Cruise collection by Nicolas Ghesquière for Louis Vuitton showcases the historical relationship between our Maison and the Principality of Monaco. Louis Vuitton has indeed been tied to the destiny of this legendary rock for many years", says Michael Burke, Chairman & CEO of Louis Vuitton.
