Louis Vuitton staged its latest Cruise showing at a setting befitting the collection: the I.M. Pei-designed Miho Museum near Kyoto. "The collection is mixed with references to Kurosawa movies, which are so incredible because of their unique lighting. We can also see elements from Kitano movies, like Battle Royale. There are images of these very strong girls, as well. The '70s movie series Stray Cat Rock is fascinating as it's centered around Japanese female bikers in classic '70s clothing—this is how we opened the show. And until 20-25 years ago, these girls on their motorbikes could still be seen out and about in Tokyo." NICOLAS GHESQUIÈRE
