Louis Vuitton Cruise 2017, Rio de Janeiro

Runway

Sport is chic! That was the message Nicolas Ghesquière sent to fashion world Saturday afternoon. He sent it from the Oscar Niemeyer–designed Niterói Contemporary Art Museum, an architectural marvel perched on a cliff that looks like it could have landed from space or emerged from the sea in Rio de Janeiro. That is where the Resort show for Louis Vuitton happened.

There were 514 local and international guests arrayed on the museum’s spectacular patio Saturday afternoon, including the French icon Catherine Deneuve, but also Alicia Vikander, Zendaya, and Jaden Smith.

The reference to the soon to come olympics was everywhere. Color-blocked dresses looked like deconstructed scuba suits, windbreaker parkas seemed spliced together from flags, and basketball shorts sported the house monogram striped down the sides. Ghesquiére took cues from artist Hélio Oiticica for a pair of kitelike paper leather dresses; Aldemir Martins is the artist behind the futebol prints.

The boombox bags was our favorites. The designer proudly reported that, thanks to Bluetooth technology, they actually play music!
