Cruise 2023 Show

Nicolas Ghesquière presented his Louis Vuitton Cruise 2023 Collection at the Salk Institute in California on Thursday, May 12th.


The sun is the Artistic Director’s guest of honor in the Cruise 2023 collection, playing an active part in the evolution of this wardrobe where changes in temperature set a stylistic tempo. The unique light of the West Coast creates prisms across shimmering silhouettes, while a myriad of natural materials gives the illusion of a metallic palette.

I wanted the clothes to be like reflections, a point of contact between light and people.


As if on a utopian crossing, the collection can be seen to either celebrate the sun or provide protection from it. From looks that evoke a desert-climate to metal tones that reflect solar rays, Nicolas Ghesquière explores the contrast between structured constructions and fluid draping, between technology and the earth.

Salk Institute

Continuing his tradition of staging his Cruise shows in some of the world’s most remarkable architectural structures, Nicolas Ghesquière chose the Salk Institute in California to present his Louis Vuitton collection. Designed by Louis Kahn in 1965, this Brutalist masterpiece is both a treasure of modern architecture and an internationally renowned research institute.
