Resort season is upon us. Resort or cruise, as the especially chic luxury megabrands like to call it, are the collections which designers produce to be worn in warmer climes throughout the holiday weeks of late December into early January. With that in mind, these collections are often presented on runways far away from where houses are headquartered. Enter Nicolas Ghesquière, who will present his forthcoming cruise collection for Louis Vuitton not in Paris, but in Japan in mid May. To celebrate the occasion, Vogue Japan has put on its June 2017 cover the Louis Vuitton creative director and four of his celebrity muses including Rila Fukushima. Photographed by Patrick Demarchelier, the cover no doubt features Rila and co wearing looks from Ghesquière’s Spring 2017 collection. The collection and the show are no doubt going to be memorable. Watch this space in the coming weeks.
