Louis Vuitton is set to hold its next Cruise show in New York this May at John F. Kennedy airport’s newly renovated TWA Flight Center. House creative director Nicolas Ghesquière announced the news on Monday (April 1) in an Instagram post, calling the refurbished venue “iconic” and hash-tagging its original architect, Eero Saarinen.

This will mark the first brand event at the modernized location, which originally opened in 1962 but has been closed since 2001. The terminal is known for its unique structure that features a distinct wing-shaped roof and tube-like corridors. Louis Vuitton’s Cruise 2019 event on May 8 will precede the center’s highly-anticipated TWA Hotel opening, set for May 15. The accommodation will encompass several shops, bars, restaurants, exhibits, a fitness center and retro-designed lounges.

“The TWA Flight Center, a sheer evocation of travel itself, is inherently linked to Louis Vuitton’s commitment to exclusive architectural discoveries, to its art of travel, and represents an ideal close to Nicolas Ghesquière’s inspirations,” the brand explained in a statement, as reported by WWD.

The French luxury label has also made moves in other global regions recently. Last week, it traveled to Hong Kong to host a retrospective presentation of its high-end furniture line, Objets Nomades.
