Nicolas Ghesquière transformed the landmark TWA Flight Center, designed by the architect Eero Saarinen in 1962, at New York’s JFK Airport into a tropical oasis for his Louis Vuitton Resort 2020 Show. The TWA Flight Center has been recently renovated and turned into a hotel and conference center.
Louis Vuitton’s Artistic Director of Women’s Collections shares why he chose the Eero Saarinen-designed terminal as the backdrop for his next Cruise Collection: “I was lucky enough to have landed at the TWA Flight Center in the late Nineties. It was something I could never forget. This place was forgotten for twenty years and now has come back to life. It’s like a sanctuary that has been revived and seeing it enchant anew in a different iteration, as a hotel, is a great pleasure. It’s about rediscovering an uncommon place that nevertheless is part of American heritage.”
