Marc Jacobs Turns Back Time at Paris Fashion Week for Louis Vuitton

I loved the headpieces from Marc Jacobs’ final Louis Vuitton show. He’ll be leaving the luxury brand to focus on his eponymous line, so this was his literal final bow for LV. And though the designs were luxurious, they were also a bit repetitive within the collection and…dare I say…already been done? Possibly by yet another icon of fashion at the 1986 Academy Awards?

Marc Jacobs Runs a Train through the Louvre

I love Marc Jacobs. He’s just down for anything, including building a train and running it full-steam through the most prestigious art museum in the world. To explain further about the triumph that was the Louis Vuitton show at the Louvre last week, Louis Vuitton stylist Katie Grand told Grazia, “At first, we had tried to get a real train in to the Louvre, but it was too heavy so it had to be built. They started work about a month ago. We’d looked at great train films like Murder On The Orient Express, Some Like It Hot and Strangers On A Train for reference, and in the end, she was quite like the Orient Express.”

Cool, n’est pas?
