Nicolas Ghesquière will present the Louis Vuitton Cruise 2020 Collection at the TWA Flight Center located at New York’s JFK Airport on May 8th, 2019. (New York time)
The architectural world tour continues. After Monaco (Palace Square), Palm Springs (Bob & Dolores Estate), Brazil (Mac Niteroi), Japan (Miho Museum), and the French Riviera (Fondation Maeght), Louis Vuitton’s next Cruise Collection will be presented at the iconic 1962 TWA Flight Center in New York. Designed by the famed Finnish-American architect Eero Saarinen at the dawn of the Jet Age, the masterpiece of midcentury modern architecture is one of the world’s most imaginative airport terminals. Designated as a historic landmark and closed to the public since 2001, the TWA Flight Center will be soon reopening as the TWA Hotel. Louis Vuitton will be the first to stage an event in the restored space before it opens to the public mid-May.
A sheer evocation of travel itself, the TWA Flight Center embodies the spirit of exploration and experimentation at the heart of Louis Vuitton’s Art of Travel and represents an ideal that closely aligns with Nicolas Ghesquière’s core inspirations.Fashion Show Cruise Women

The new Louis Vuitton campaign starring Karlie Kloss and Kris Wu unveils Horizon Soft, the latest luggage collection designed by Marc Newson.
Following his first breakthrough hard case luggage collection for Louis Vuitton, Marc Newson has once again pushed the boundaries of travel design with his new Horizon Soft rolling luggage. With the goal of maximizing interior volume while minimizing weight, two essential elements when traveling, the design uses an innovative outer-shell made of thermo-formed 3D knit. The result is an incredibly lightweight and eye-catching double-sided jacquard featuring Newson's interpretation of Louis Vuitton's Monogram. Through an innovative process tailored to Louis Vuitton's specifications, a custom technical yarn is seamlessly knit into a single piece that is given a water repellant treatment and then heat-formed to shape.
To introduce the new collection, Karlie Kloss and Kris Wu embody the sense of freedom at the heart of Louis Vuitton's historic Spirit of Travel. Lightweight, yet strong and resistant, the new Horizon Soft offers an unparalleled experience for modern frequent travelers.Luggage Horizon The Spirit of Travel Karlie Kloss Kris Wu
The final chapter of the Men's Spring-Summer 2019 Campaign, photographed by Raimond Wouda.
For the Men’s Spring-Summer 2019 Campaign, Artistic Director Virgil Abloh continues to illuminate the values established in his debut collection in final of his three-part campaign. Titled "School Teens" and shot by the Dutch photographer Raimond Wouda, the campaign depicts the formative communication between teenagers in group situations fundamental to the evolvement of a man from boyhood into adulthood. Students dressed in block-colour t-shirts evoke the Spring-Summer 2019 Louis Vuitton show for which Virgil Abloh invited 1500 young students clad in similar garments to form the colour spectrum of a rainbow.
A contemporary take on the 'schuttersstukken' of the Dutch Baroque, the images were photographed around schools in Los Angeles and observe the interactive culture specific to our teenage years: the desire to belong, contrasted by the need for individuality. In constant evolution with the times, this age-particular tension between uniformity and diversity paves the way for a man's future understanding of his own identity, wardrobe, and what that means.Menswear Virgil Abloh Spring-summer
