CRUISE 2019 SHOW: THE MUSICAL PERFORMANCE

An inspired performance from Woodkid kicks off the Louis Vuitton Cruise 2019 collection 

Within the Giacometti Courtyard of the Fondation Maeght, where creative energy has pulsed for decades, French artist Woodkid, performed a special concert ahead of the Cruise 2019 collection. The talented, multi-hyphenate musician sourced rare instruments conceived by brothers François et Bernard Baschet, whose compositions from the 1950s were dramatically conceptual in shape and sound. Their unconventional structures – elemental in design yet abstract – produced acoustics that, still today, resonate with modernity. Here, the effect was further heightened on a stage that re-imagined Les Nuits de la Fondation Jean Stryjenski, which took place at the Fondation Maeght in 1986. Such striking aesthetic and acoustics made for a memorable backdrop to Woodkid’s original soundtrack, which featured Jennifer Connelly speaking extracts from Grace Coddington’s memoir, Grace: A Memoir. As dusk settled on Saint-Paul-de-Vence, this inspired performance and installation connected past and present ahead of Nicolas Ghesquière’s vision of what is to come.
