BY // 05.20.24

The pages of PaperCity’s May issue take an urban look at the Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2024 runway collection, recently shown by invitation at POST Houston to celebrate the French fashion house’s 40-year presence in the Bayou City. Louis Vuitton womenswear artistic director Nicolas Ghesquière envisioned the collection transported through the interior of a bright orange hot air balloon, signifying the spirit of travel that’s at the heart of the Louis Vuitton maison.

Shot at iconic places around the city of Houston, this Spring/Summer collection takes on new meaning. Peruse the stunning images from the May print issue and shop the looks below.
