Picture a fleet of strong women confidently marching across a long sculptural bridge, set against a beautiful utopia with stunning views of Paris—a fitting scene for Louis Vuitton‘s Cruise 2020 collection, which is all about “proud, positive looks that advance straight ahead, serenely.”
Staged at the breathtaking Axe Majeur—an urban monument in the Parisian suburb of Cergy-Pontoise designed by the late Israeli sculptor Dani Karavan—the show explored the idea of transportive journeys and imaginary portals, reinforced by the striking red archways and singular geometry of the location.

The garments conveyed a jubilant energy with vibrant colours and bold textures, and a futuristic vibe with military ensembles inspired by sci-fi and space travel (think: structured coats and dresses printed with lunar landscapes, sharp padded shoulders and minicapes). Elsewhere, sporty details like bubble hems with elastic cords, high-waisted track pants, sleek leather separates, chunky chain bags and pointed-toe boots afford an effortless cool.

As the show concluded with the last model looking beyond the peaceful park setting and to future, we too, can look forward to new beginnings and the day we can safely travel again. Aptly put by creative director Nicolas Ghesquière, the looks are “the picture of harmony in an environment that is so close and yet so far away, borderless and open to adventure. One needs nothing more than the most beautiful of passports: creation. As ever, it is unlimited and free.”
