Nicolas Ghesquière reveals venue of Louis Vuitton's cruise collection show

In 2018, the art foundation named after Marguerite and Aimé Maeght, located in Saint-Paul de Vence, France, will host exhibitions by South Korean artist Lee Bae and by Belgian artist Jan Fabre... and the presentation of Louis Vuitton's 2019 cruise collection. Nicolas Ghesquière, the Creative Director in charge of womenswear collections for the French luxury label owned by the LVMH group, revealed on 16th March on his Instagram account the venue of his next show, scheduled for 28th May.

The Maeght Foundation in Saint-Paul de Vence, France - Fondation Maeght

The Maeght Foundation, nestled in the hills of Saint-Paul de Vence, on the Côte d'Azur, is a private foundation hosting a stunning modern and contemporary art museum. Aimé Maeght was a XXth century Parisian art dealer and gallery owner, who exhibited some of the great modern artists. Having chosen the Miho museum, located north of Kyoto, Japan, for the last cruise collection show, Louis Vuitton has once again picked a venue in which architecture, art and nature are strikingly blended.

The Maeght Foundation buildings were designed by architect Josep Lluís Sert. The site is distinctive both for its exhibition halls and for the extensive, leafy gardens featuring works by Giacometti, Miro, Braque and Pol Bury.

The south of France is a popular destination for cruise collection shows this year: Gucci will in fact showcase its own on 30th May at the Alyscamps heritage site in Arles.
