Back to the future; enter Ghesquière vision. Louis Vuitton Creative Director Nicolas Ghesquière has a knack for fusing ultra-chic futurism with ’80s cool. It’s a journey most certainly worth embarking on. After all, the storied Parisian house is rooted in the art of travel. And for Cruise, Ghesquière’s offerings are supercharged for a surreal dystopia. Ideal for the misty streets of Bladerunner, the popular Archlight sneaker has been reimagined as a thigh-high boot. The attitude is powerful, as are the jacket’s strong shoulders and resulting silhouette.
