After Christian Dior’s and Chanel’s dazzling Brooklyn Navy Yard as well as Dubai resortwear fashion showcases, it was the turn of another premium luxury French fashion house Louis Vuitton to launch its cruise collection at an equally exotic venue.
 
According to WWD, the label recently staged an extravagant show, featuring the first-ever resort range designed by its newly appointed creative director Nicolas Ghesqiuère, in front of the Prince’s Palace of Monaco, which is home to the Grimaldi family for more than 700 years.
 
Punched with youthful 1970’s vibes, the suede patches and jazzy pattern adorned collection was based on a mustardy yellow and brown palette with prints inspired from wallpapers, Grand Prix and underwater plants.
 
The featured pieces were belted pantsuits, stiff black leather lapelled coatdresses, lozenge-shaped motif decorated long-sleeve tops, jagged hemmed skirts, sheer silk knits, beige beaver fur coats, safari suits, high-waisted trousers and pretty spring dresses.
 
Founded in 1854, Louis Vuitton specializes in an array of leather goods, ready-to-wear and fashion accessories. The company sells products through a network of standalone boutiques, lease departments in high-end department stores and the e-commerce section of its website. 
 
Before taking over the creative reins of Louis Vuitton from American designer Marc Jacobs in November, 2013, the 43-year-old French designer Ghesqiuère had helmed the Parisian high-fashion house Balenciaga for nearly 15 years.
