Louis Vuitton has revealed it will present the Cruise 2023 collection on May 12, 2022, at the Salk Institute in La Jolla, San Diego County, California.
This iconic location features remarkable brutalist architecture and sweeping views over the Pacific Ocean. Designed by Estonian-born American architect Louis Kahn, in collaboration with founder Dr Jonas Salk, The Salk Institute is considered one of the most significant architectural sites in the United States.
It is an independent non-profit research institute where internationally renowned scientists make life-changing discoveries in the fields of ageing, cancer, neuroscience, immunology, climate change and other areas to benefit global health and wellbeing.
Its impressive architecture merges bold lines with impressive views and modern design.
“Having spent a lot of time in California, I was drawn to the idea of showing there again. The Salk Institute has been a place of wonder for me over the years and Louis Kahn’s stunning Brutalist architecture against this extraordinary setting of the Pacific Ocean and the California sunset provides me with endless inspiration. It also celebrates intelligence, knowledge and the belief in the power of science,” Said Nicolas Ghesquière, Artistic Director of Women’s collections at Louis Vuitton.
Louis Vuitton’s Cruise shows across the years have been presented at some of the world’s most remarkable architectural structures and settings, each of which reflects genuine sources of inspiration for Nicolas Ghesquière, the Artistic Director of Women’s Collections.
The Louis Vuitton Cruise 2023 show will take place on May 12, 2022.
