Nicolas Ghesquière is dreaming in California: Louis VuittonThe women’s collection’s artistic director will visit the Golden State on May 12 to present the French fashion house’s 2023 yacht collection.

Ghesquière often chooses an architectural wonder as the transport backdrop. Yacht shows were held at the splendid Bob Hope Estate in Palm Springs, California, by John Lautner; Brazil’s MAC Niterói by Oscar Niemeyer; Ieoh Ming Pei’s Miho Museum of Kyoto by Ieoh Ming Pei; Fondation Maeght in Saint-Paul de Vence by Josep Lluís Sert, and the TWA Flight Center at JFK Airport in New York by Eero Saarinen.

Its 2021 yacht collection was photographed at Ghesquière’s studio at LV’s headquarters in Paris, while yacht show 2022 was live from a bridge-like monument in Paris by the late Israeli sculptor Dani Karavan called Ax Majeur.
