Cruise collections are generally a fabulous affair, originally designed for an elite group of wealthy women who escape to sun-soaked, 'Saint'-prefixed places like St Barthes and St Tropez to avoid the dreaded winter chill.

Therefore, it only seems fitting that designers use the presentations to recreate such a thrill, flinging fashion editors and buyers to the far corners of the globe in suitable exotic, high style. Consider: last year's Chanel Cruise 2017 spectacle in Cuba, Dior's in the UK's Blenheim Palace and Louis Vuitton's in the spectacular Rio de Janeiro landmark of Niteròi Contemporary Art Museum.

Determine to outdo itself, as the luxury house so often does, Louis Vuitton have finally released details of their heretofore hushed Cruise presentation which is to be held at the Miho Museum, south-east of the Japanese city of Kyoto.

Designed by I.M. Pei, the architect behind the Grand Louvre and its Parisian pyramids, the Miho Museum was designed as a sort of heaven-on-earth, inspired by the mythical Shangri-La valley of author James Hilton's 1933 novel, Lost Horizon.

If previous years shows are anything to go by, a heaven-on-earth this is sure to be, carefully patrolled by the chicest, LV-clad angels ever to be seen.

The Louis Vuitton Croisière show will take place on the 14th of May, 2017 and will be broadcast live on
