California, here they come! Continuing along the western road recently paved by high fashion designers Burberry and Tom Ford, global luxury house Louis Vuitton is ditching Paris for Palm Springs, CA to host their Cruise 16 Resort Collection.
Palm Springs has long been a chic oasis only a two-hour escape from the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles (It’s the Hamptons to our Manhattan). Now, with the arrival of creative director Nicolas Ghesquière and the rest of the LV squad, the global spotlight is finally cast on the modern desert town, solidifying its rise as a fashion capital.
Tonight’s invite-only show is rumored to draw an elite crowd of around 800-1000 to the historic Bob Hope House. This famous estate boasts futuristic, out-of-this-world vibes that are sure to be a foreshadowing of something major in store. And while the details of this much-anticipated event are understandably being kept on the DL, we anticipate that the results are going to be #epic.
Catch the action live here, and check back tomorrow for our recap of what’s sure to be nothing short of an amazing show. Because you know what they say: shoot for the moon (or, a house that looks like the moon).
