After a spectacular Cruise show in Rio de Janeiro last year, Louis Vuitton is heading east to the land of the Rising Sun. Cruise designs for 2018 will hit the runway at an undisclosed location in Japan on May 14. The exact location will be revealed later on, but knowing the history of the brand it is bound to be exciting. Lately, the brand is taking their travel roots pretty seriously, with shows in Palm Springs and Monaco.
Louis Vuitton has had a long relationship with Japan through collaboration with Japanese designers and artists including Hiroshi Fujiwara, Takashi Murakami, Yayoi Kusama and Rei Kawakubo. Their first store in Tokyo opened way back in 1978. Even their iconic monogram has been inspired by Japanese mon or family crests.
