Louis Vuitton hired shaman to stop the rain for Cruise ’19 show

Is the Sun God smiling on Louis Vuitton? Luxury brand hired ‘shaman’ to ‘stave off the rain’ after the heavens opened on Dior show… and it WORKED

  • Luxury brand Louis Vuitton held the 2019 Cruise show in  Côte d’Azur in France
  • The designer label’s bosses were so worried about rain they ‘hired a shaman’ 
  • There was no rain at the outside show so models and A list guests stayed dry 

Louis Vuitton has been controlling the weather in France according to the designer brand’s event organisers who believe they know how to stop the rain on show day.

The high-end designer label was so worried guests would be drenched at the Cruise 2019 show in Saint-Paul de Vence, a small medieval town on the Côte d’Azur in France last week, the brand hired a shaman.

And, unlike the Dior show which was rocked by rain, the VIP guests and models were not disrupted by raindrops.

Shamans are healers, traditionally found in northern Asia and North America. They are believed to have access to, and influence in the ‘spirit world’ and some can control the weather, it is believed.

Kate Young, a renowned stylist who was at the show with model Sienna Miller, revealed the shaman was hired.

She said: ‘The art collection is incredible and there was a musical installation. Vuitton hired a shaman to stave off the rain and apparently all his work succeeded (kissing trees, or so I heard), because it didn’t rain until after the show finished.’

A shaman is a healer who is in touch with the spirit world and can control events on earth which other humans do not have the power to do, according to believers

According to Page Six, this is not the first time.

The shaman had been used before but bosses at parent company LVMH called time on the bizzare hiring.

However, an outdoor Dior show was soaked last week in Chantilly, prompting his return to the payroll as brand bosses feared a wash-out.

Harpers Bizarre also said they spotted the shaman.

A review said: ‘The unidentified shaman also commanded the weather at LV’s Cruise shows in Rio and Kyoto.’

The show took place inside the Joan Miró’s Labyrinthe, a life-size maze of sculptures that overlooked the hills of Saint-Paul-de-Vence.
