Saint Laurent and Dior in Los Angeles, and now Louis Vuitton in Palm Springs? Is fashion making like half of our friends in New York and moving to the West Coast?

Yesterday, Nicolas Ghesquière announced that he will show his Louis Vuitton resort 15 collection in the sunny desert city of Palm Springs. Considering his taste for funky interior design (see the wavy pink Sottsass mirror in his Paris apartment), maybe it's not so much of a surprise. Ghesquière's Vuitton has blended the retro (big collars) with the futuristic (drones) since day one. And earlier this month he showed his fall collection beneath the geodesic domes of the Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris. Perhaps Palm Springs has been where he's heading all along.

The show will take place on May 6 — three days before Raf Simons brings Dior to Los Angeles. What does this mean for the fashion world? We're not sure yet, but it almost certainly involves sunshine, a celebrity-filled front row and also redeye flights.
