The Resort (or Cruise) collection is the most important one to fashion brands as it's on the sales floor the longest and is often most wearable. It’s also a fresh flow of new looks and just in time when you’re over heavy fall coats and are dreaming about your upcoming holiday apparel.
Nicholas Ghesquière presented his debut Louis Vuitton Cruise Collection for 2015 on May 17, in Monaco - the first time the house has presented such a collection in a show format.
The Cruise collection was significantly more embellished and playful than what Ghesquière did for Fall. He appeared to be having fun when designing this collection: collaging mismatched prints, embroidering lace with tiny seed beads, and accessorizing with spiky silver belts and gladiator sandal-boots that inched up toward the knees. Deep pink was paired with baby pink, and caution orange with yellow and sea blue—"a game of colors," he called it.
