Nicolas Ghesquière of Louis Vuitton isn’t going anywhere. Last week, the fashion house renewed his contract as creative director and over the weekend, the French fashion designer lived up to his artistic legacy by treating guests to a spectacular Cruise 2019 show. The runway took place at the Fondation Maeght in Saint-Paul-de-Vence inside a sculptural maze. Ghesquière drew inspiration from the natural surroundings, infusing his clothes with elements from the garden. This was the designer's fifth Resort collection for Louis Vuitton, and a memorable one at that. Here, what you need to know about the show.
