Le Train Bleu

I just love the theatricality of the Marc Jacobs Fall 2012/2013 womenswear show for Louis Vuitton.

A deep blue and gold LV liveried train drew into the set of a station at the Cour Caree du Louvre amid clouds of smoke and blowing whistles. Models were seated in pairs within the train, as they emerged from their carriages there were uniformed porters on hand to carry their hat boxes, weekend bags and “petite valises”. The silhouetttes were simple but the fabrics were sumptous, a fabulous array of jacquards, brocades, lame and fancy tweeds, with more than a sprinkling of sparkle. Elaborate bejewelled buttons adorned the coats, dresses and bags. The models looked like they had just stepped out of the last century in their oversized cloche inspired hats. The whole show exuded the feeling of heritage and craftsmanship that the brand embodies. It truly recalled “The golden Age Of Travel”.
