Phoebe herself rocked a dark auburn hairstyle which is a departure from the strawberry blonde regency-inspired locks which made her famous on Netflix’s hit show. She donned an oversized Louis Vuitton sportswear inspired henley shirt, with wide stripe and the hem of the sleeves adorned with the french maison’s insignia of course. The Bridgerton beauty sported natural makeup, with bronze eyeshadow framing her fluttery lashes. The look was complete with tan knee high boots straight from the runway.
Cruise shows generally allow designers to experiment with the locations of their collections, this year Chanel for instance presented their Formula 1 inspired 2023 cruise collection in Monaco. This year Louis Vuitton explained in an official statement that it wished to continue "its architectural journey of showcasing cruise collections in exclusive locations of exceptional design and renown around the world." Hence the decision to show at the Salk Institute in California. A Brutalist masterpiece designed by Louis Kahn.

What is the Salk Institute?
The Salk Institute is an independent non-profit research institute where internationally renowned scientists make life-changing discoveries in the fields of ageing, cancer, neuroscience, as well as climate change and other areas to benefit global health and well-being. The unique architecture of the establishment was where Nicolas Ghesquière decided to present his latest collection.
What was the inspiration behind the Louis Vuitton Cruise Collection 2023?
The Californian desert turned out to be the perfect place to host the collection, with clothing that blended fashion-fantasy with science fiction. The film Mad Max came to mind as did the Disney+ TV series The Mandalorian. The clothes were futuristic and seemed ideal for a high-fashion jaunt in the dunes. Baggy harem trousers tapered at the ankle were paired utilitarian belts and accessories.
