Rio de Janeiro is not just the site of the upcoming Olympics—or a favorite vacay spot for Andy Cohen and Anderson Cooper. Indeed, Louis Vuitton presented its Cruise 2017 collection in the Brazilian city this past weekend. And if you were too busy at backyard barbecues and pool parties to make the trek (or, um, to be scrolling Instagram), we've got you covered. Here's everything you need to know about the new collection to sound like a total fashion pro.
1. The Setting
The show took place at the stunning Niterói Contemporary Art Museum. The building's modern architecture is eye candy enough, but its natural backdrop—ahh, mountains and a sparkling sea—just added to the staggering beauty of the setting. The models didn't hurt, either.

3. The Celebs
Model Alessandra Ambrosio was a guest—and sat in the front row to Snapchat the event. She was joined by celebrities like Alicia Vikander (who—remember—rocked a custom Louis Vuitton dress when she won her Oscar), Zendaya, Jaden Smith, and Catherine Deneuve.
3. The Inspiration
The sporty collection took its cues from—what else—Brazil. Designer Nicolas Ghesquière stitched up color-blocked dresses, windbreaker parkas, and branded basketball shorts. There were also parachute dresses, slim-cut pants with flare, and tons of sequined scarves. Watch the show here.
4. The Must-Haves
Louis Vuitton's bags are always rockin, but this trunk actually does. This boom-box-cum-bag really plays music, and we predict a long waiting list for this one.
