Louis Vuitton To Show Spring 2017 Collection in Rio
It seems like far-flung destinations are becoming more regular for mid-season collection shows. Not your typical “New York City Fashion Week” type of occasion. In addition to Louis Vuitton, luxury brands are jet setting across the country to show their Spring 2017 collections.
Creative Director, Nicolas Ghesquiere is heading to Rio de Janeiro on May 28th. A long ways away from Palm Springs — where last years Spring 2016 collection was shown.
But Louis Vuitton is not the only one that’ll be traveling this season…. For example, Gucci plans to present its next collection in London, and Chanel will be sowing in Havana, Cuba on May 3rd.
The Brazilian seaside city of Rio will be hosting the 2016 Summer Olympics there which will predict some buzz in the fashion circles.
I was particularly excited when I found out this news, because I feel like instead of playing it safe, more clothing and couture companies need to push themselves out of their comfort zone and show their collections around the world more often. It seems like when people travel to the destination, it brings the clothing to life and tells a story in a different way.
