Louis Vuitton has showcased its latest Cruise collection overseas once again, this year choosing sunny Palm Springs as its backdrop – further cementing the Los Angeles area’s rise in the fashion scene.

Guests were invited to the grounds of Bob Hope’s extraordinary “spaceship” house, a futuristic space designed by John Lautner. It boasts 23,000 square feet and views stretching miles over the Coachella Valley and provided ample inspiration for the show, which featured pieces inspired by American deserts.

In front of an audience that included Michelle Williams, Miranda Kerr, Selena Gomez and Leandra Medine, models displayed Nicolas Ghesquiere’s new Cruise collection which included floaty maxi dresses with chain prints, high neck dresses with bell-shaped sleeves, cropped biker jackets and plenty of suede.

“I want to talk to many types of women, not one icon, and every season I try to express that as strongly as possible” Nicolas Ghesquieretold Vogue  moments after the show.

“Something long and with fluidity, this was very important for me to express this season. A different attitude, effortless and cool, and with flat shoes and long skirts and a certain lightness of the fabrics.”
