Louis Vuitton’s Cruise collection for 2018 was shown this week in Japan – swinging between the present day and a noble ancestral civilisation, between futurism and poetry, between huge, vibrant cities and delicate landscapes.
“The garments recall samurai, figurative engraving, inked landscapes, ceremonial dress, the keikogi of martial arts, the Kurosawa cinematic dramaturgy, or the unique melancholy of Kitano. Urban pantsuits and architectural tunics are designed in the spirit of Hokusai. Interwoven jersey and leather sweaters recall the armour of Japanese warriors. Evening dresses gleam with Noh theater gold. Delicately crafted obi belts become the fabric of tapered trousers. Handbags and clutches are decorated with Kabuki masks.” – Louis Vuitton.
