Louis Vuitton's Cruise 2020 Show Will Be Held at New York's JFK Airport

Inside the defunct TWA Flight Center.

Louis Vuitton has officially announced it will be showcasing its Resort 2020 show in New York in May at John F. Kennedy’s revamped TWA Flight Center. The French fashion house’s creative director Nicolas Ghesquière selected the Eero Saarinen-designed location for its midcentury, modern architecture.

Originally opened in 1962, the Trans World Airlines flagship terminal was once an iconic part of Kennedy International airport. Though it has been closed since 2001, the terminal is known for its striking steel and concrete fixtures. Finnish-American architect Eero Saarinen designed its wing-shaped roof and tube-like corridors which was unveiled at the height of the Jet Age. The Louis Vuitton Cruise 2020 presentation on May 8 will take place ahead of the space’s official reopening as the 512-room TWA hotel, slated to be unveiled on May 15. According to WWD, the revitalized building will house retail boutiques, bars, restaurants and more.

In an official statement, Louis Vuitton shares more on its upcoming Cruise 2020 show location as reported by WWD:

“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.”

Louis Vuitton will be the first brand to host an event at the defunct terminal. Stay tuned here as more details emerge.
