Here’s a tiny (but arm candy heavenly) teaser of what you’ll see on the Louis Vuitton Cruise 2017 runway in Rio de Janeiro this Sunday morning if you tune in to our LIVE feed of the show.

Artistic director Nicolas Ghesquiere has reworked the classic LV deep dyed epi leather with a totally funny, sunny new twist revealed on the brand’s Instagram account earlier today.

The striped colour combo packaged up in a heavenly box clutch form is just the tip of the accessories iceberg, but does hint we’ll see an up-beat mood on the runway – not surprising, given the Rio locale.

If 5.30am Sunday AEST morn is just too much of a stretch for you, good news is we’ll be re-running the show on loop once it’s over – but we have a suspicion this collection will be worth losing a little sleep for. We’ll also feature all the goss from the front row and complete set of runway look images on Sunday. Countdown’s on…

Here’s why the show’s Niteroi Contemporary Art Museum venue is incredibly special.
