'Twas French maids and bellhops on the catwalk at Paris Fashion Week on Wednesday morning as Marc Jacobs opened Hotel Louis Vuitton -- with the help of some supermodel friends. Kate Moss made a triumphant return to the runway, closing out the show, and also on-hand were Amber Valletta, Carmen Kass, Carolyn Murphy, Stella Tennant and Naomi Campbell...each one arriving in an old-fashioned elevator for her turn.
Hourglass shaped coats in tweed and slick patent leather were worn with thigh-high stockings - and nothing else. Black bustiers were layered over demure A-line skirts worn with shirts with round white collars. A black dress embroidered with sequins looked innocent enough until the model turned the corner, revealing her handcuff-bound wrists.
Superstar designer Marc Jacobs said the public's insatiable desire for everything with the LV logo sparked the idea for the collection.
"There's this crazy, almost irrational desire for these objects, these things we create," Jacobs told a scrum of journalists in a frenzied backstage interview.
"We were thinking about obsession, fetishism and we thought about an old hotel, with its chambermaids and the affairs that go on there, the crimes and scandals. And we just wanted to reveal all the amazing creatures who passed through there," he said.
