France isn’t only a hotspot for ready-to-wear fashion shows; designers such as Louis Vuitton and Gucci are also taking their Cruise collections to the country, hosting presentations on the French Riviera and Arles, respectively.
Dior is the latest house to show its Cruise 2019 collection in France, taking over the historic Chantilly Stables located just 30 miles from its Paris headquarters. The stables, which are the largest in Europe, make up a portion of the Renaissance-style Domaine de Chantilly chateau built for the seventh Prince de Condé, Louis-Henri de Bourbon.
The show’s setting is vastly different from Dior’s Cruise 2018 show, which took place at the Upper Las Virgenes Canyon Open Space Preserve in Calabasas, California. Stay tuned for Dior’s Cruise 2019 show on May 25.
