    • CRUISE COLLECTION IN PALM SPRINGS - Louis Vuitton Fashion NEWS
    For the presentation of its second Cruise collection, Louis Vuitton is travelling to Palm Springs, California.

    The show will be broadcast live on May 6th at 6:15pm Pacific Time (PT) in an exclusive setting: The Bob and Dolores Hope Estate, a Palm Springs landmark, designed by the great modernist architect John Lautner.

    Sitting on the top of Southridge and overlooking the entire Coachella Valley, this iconic and futuristic estate is hosting a fashion show for the first time in its history.

    Considered as the largest private estate in Palm Springs, it was designed by John Lautner, a renowned architect whose work in Southern California is celebrated for its technical prowess and spectacular, sensual and progressive lines. A legend among Palm Springs estates, it is also famous for its major architectural interest, so characteristic of Desert Modernism.

    The designers reveal their inspirations and process behind the creations. Louis Vuitton presents Objets Nomades -Milano, Design Week 2015 April 14th – 19th  

    Louis Vuitton enriches the Objets Nomades collection of foldable furniture and travel accessories, created in collaboration with several international designers and presented for the first time during Design Miami in 2012. This year the Objets Nomades collection reveals  a new collaboration with 3 talented designers: the Raw Edges, Gwenaël Nicolas and Damien Langlois-Meurinne, revealing their inspirations and experiences while working with Louis Vuitton.

    Raw Edges discusses their Concertina Collection: "We loved the challenge of working on a collection of collapsible objects, with the focus on how to make them look large, surprising and with real presence when they are expanded".
    Gwenaël Nicolas, taking inspiration by Ernest Hemingway’s African travels, has created the Ernest Bed and the Miller Lamp, which were ”an opportunity to discover a mysterious world” and, about his collaboration with Louis Vuitton, he loved "the idea that the designer could propose the object he wanted to design: it's a very personal and  serious commitment".

    The Valet and the Totem Floral by Damien Langlois-Meurinne, spawned from his idea: “A designer is nothing without the savoir-faire of the artisans who bring his ideas and sketches to life”. The Raw Edges, Gwenaël Nicolas and Damien Langlois-Meurinne have increased the existing  collaborations beside some of the most creative  designers of our time:  Campana Brothers, Patricia Urquiola, Barber & Osgerby, Nendo, Maarten Baas and Atelier Oï. These 9 designers have created 16 Objets Nomades.

    The exhibition will run in Milan until April 19th at Palazzo Bocconi, Corso Venezia 48.
