Louis Vuitton

Autumn 12

By driving a vintage steam train straight through the centre of his catwalk, Marc Jacobs provided the spectacle of the season (again – remember last season’s carousel?). Models then disembarked, met by white-gloved porters carrying signature Vuitton handbags and luggage – a real performance that was the talk of the town. But beyond the pizzazz, were the clothes any good? Yes, but there was a feeling we’d seen it before as the vintage-inspired bag lady look was obviously on Jacobs’ mind for autumn 12 (see his eponymous label’s New York show). An odd trend for cropped trousers layered under skirts and jackets appeared again (see Prada and Chanel), this time with wide sweeping lapels, gaudy jewelled buttons and holographic tiles that progressed to crazy carpet prints in a mismatched palette, alongside twinkly metallic twin sets and A-line dresses.
