5 things we love about Louis Vuitton's cruise 2017 show in Rio de Janeiro
1. Ultimate #TravelGoals
With over a century and a half perfecting the art of travel, it's no secret that Louis Vuitton is the master of inciting #TravelGoals. Taking this season's cruise collection to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, the South American extravaganza was an experiential treat. Think: Guests coasting la mer courtesy of planned paddleboard lessons. Who knew Nicolas Ghesquière was the ultimate host?
2. Let's talk about sports
You already know about the Niterói Contemporary Art Museum as the show location, but Louis Vuitton's runway racetrack deserves much attention. Inspired by the Grand Prix and reflecting Oscar Niemeyer's architectural curves, the meandering catwalk gave all attendees the best seats in the house — #InTheFRow.
3. The A-team in attendence
The guests at the show were none other than SS16 campaign star Jaden Smith, actresses Alicia Vikander and Catherine Deneuve, models Tao Okamoto, Liu Wen and Alessandra Ambrosio, and of course, Buro 24/7's very own founder, Miroslava Duma — all wearing the best from Louis Vuitton FW16.
4. Zooming in on the clothes
There's no denying that Ghesquière has been designing on a sportswear tangent, but the cruise 2017 collection truly showcased the designer's need for speed. Truncated body suits and colour-blocked, racecar brights — red, blue, orange, green and pink — punctuated the brand's offering. The best bit? The 'Vuitton' tag to left of the models' hips, a well-executed jab at racecar branding.
5. (R)Acing accessories
The boombox bag — made up of a puzzle of Louis Vuitton's mini-trunks — were on everyone's lips and Instagram feeds, but we're thinking about wearability here. Props to Ghesquière for constantly reinvigorating the house classics. Our cruise covetables: The Grand Prix themed Speedy and the psychedelic Twist.
