Can you imagine a steam engine train pulling onto a runway, inside Paris’ Cour Carrée, with models deboarding in 19th century travel heritage inspired looks? And each with their own porter carrying luggage? Well, it happened – and in the most dramatic fashion. With giant jeweled brooches as buttons for coats, oversized hats by Stephen Jones, and layered kaleidoscopic-like prints, Marc Jacobs’s show stopping collection for Louis Vuitton was ornate and richly detailed. Just when you thought last season‘s carousel-themed presentation couldn’t be topped . . .

Love the idea of this show!
Love that they maintained the train travel theme which is where the LV company got its start.
always my favorite when collections put on real shows. this one looked like a great place to be!
The collection is beautiful and elegant—and the thought of travel like that even more so. Wonder what the Orient Express is like now?
Inspiration from Hugo, perhaps??
I loved the porters, it just cracked me up. Such a fun show.
WOW! i’m amazed just at the pictures!
LOVE IT <33

High fashion is not for me, i find it really too much usually but this was like a movie’s scene back in 20’s!!
It was great!
