Louis Vuitton in the Desert

Nicholas Ghesquiére brought his French luxury brand to Palm Springs yesterday to show his 2016 Cruise collection at Bob Hope’s pad.  According to the Hollywood Reporter, the party drew enough beautiful people to fill 800 hotel rooms in the small desert city.   Unless you live under a social media rock, you’ve likely already seen plenty of posts with the accompanying #LVCruise.  In addition to the usual bunch of super bloggers, the front row included celeb names like Kanye (sans Mrs. West), Catherine Deneuve, Michelle Williams and Marisa Tomei.

Guests were greeted by models in neon make up sporting Flock of Seagulls-esque ‘dos and neon makeup á la the eighties.  My two main takeaways from this collection awash with dope tribal prints, rad laser cut leather maxis and trousers paired with black wedge flip flops are this: a) I will wither and die of I don’t own a Louis Vuitton palm frond train case and b) wearing pants is so 2014. #downwithpants
