Now entering the station: Louis Vuitton Fall 2012. Your conductor? Marc Jacobs.
Just when we thought nothing could beat Karl Lagerfeld's crystal wonderland for Chanel, we were completely derailed by Marc Jacobs, who turned the Cour Carree du Louvre into a train station for today's Louis Vuitton Fall 2012 show.
The jaw-dropping presentation began with clouds of smoke as a custom-made Louis Vuitton locomotive pulled onto the runway. The models donned flappy hats, cigarette pants, elbow gloves and fur collared coats. They were seated two by two in the train and were each helped off by a train attendee, according to Fashionista. They were then escorted down the runway by a porter who carried their Louis Vuitton luggage and bags.
Celebs like Dianna Agron, Sarah Jessica Parker and of course, Anna Wintour, sat front row as they were transported back to the '60s through the retro fashion. Parker, who dressed sheer for the show, said it was as if she was watching a movie, according to AFP:
"It was cinema, it was beautiful. The whole thing is a massive triumph."
Jacobs isn't the only one who has been using means of transportation to complement fashion. Banana Republic and Chanel's Couture show both had airplane themes, while Kenzo models were displayed on escalators just this week.
