Nicolas Ghesquière sends his Louis Vuitton Cruise 2022 Collection on a joyous march at the monumental masterpiece Axe Majeur near Paris. Echoing the optimistic atmosphere and graphic forms of the show’s idyllic setting, the Women’s Artistic Director brings together a colorful ensemble of geometric silhouettes. Like the uniforms of an American marching band, the collection parades in a procession that is both assertive and joyful, propelling a sense of forward motion.
Conceived by the late artist Dani Karavan, Axe Majeur expresses a vision of utopia through twelve immense open-air installations. Using water, light, wind, sand, concrete, stone, and steel, this powerful series of sculptures aligns to convey a harmonious relationship between nature, space, and time. From the imposing “Douze Colonnes” to the commanding “La Passerelle” bridge, a striking horizon points towards new frontiers.
