Continuing major brand’s infatuation with exotic show venues for Cruise is French label Louis Vuitton, who took their collection showcase over more than 9,628km from its Paris headquarters in Kyoto, Japan. Staged at the Miho Museum in the Shiragaki mountains, a metal tunnel emerges from verdant mountainside and runs across a suspension bridge which was one designed by IM Pei, who created the Louvre’s glass pyramid and formed the catwalk for the show on Sunday. Models were decked in a past meets future decadence deemed in sleek tailoring, graphic samurai prints, super short hemlines and dramatic Japanese-inspired makeup. Obvious Japanese signature piees are enfused within the collection; from oriental embroidered dragons and creatures from ancient Japanese folklore, kimono belts and warrior-like armory details woven into what looked like a badass female superhero. The show was also as ode to the iconic cult Japanese designer Kansai Yamamoto of the famed jumpsuit designer for David Bowie, with prints in collaboration with the French luxury label.
