Louis Vuitton Cruise 2022 Nicolas Ghesquière sends his latest Louis Vuitton Cruise Collection on a joyous march at the monumental masterpiece Axe Majeur near Paris.
Conceived by the late artist Dani Karavan, Axe Majeur expresses a vision of utopia through twelve immense open-air installations. Using water, light, wind, sand, concrete, stone, and steel, this powerful series of sculptures aligns to convey a harmonious relationship between nature, space, and time. From the imposing “Douze Colonnes” to the commanding “La Passerelle” bridge, a striking horizon points towards new frontiers.
I see this axis as if it were a succession of doors leading elsewhere. Portals that open to other eras and places.
Echoing the optimistic atmosphere and graphic forms of the show’s idyllic setting, Nicolas Ghesquière brings together a colorful ensemble of geometric silhouettes. Like the uniforms of an American marching band, the collection parades in a procession that is both assertive and joyful, propelling a sense of forward motion.
