Known for his extravagant runway productions, Marc Jacobs for Louis Vuitton took a different route than last ready to wear season, when he brought a full-sized locomotive indoors for his show. This season, models in pairs of two slid down functioning escalators onto a yellow checkerboard runway.
Inspired by Les Deux Plateaux the famous art installation at the Palais Royal, the chequered theme also gave nod to Vuitton’s popular Damier check. Sunshine yellow was the pop colour of the collection, contrasted by classic black and white checks, or subdued by neutral gray and taupe checks. The collection was about efficiently chic dressing, and was not meant to tell a story as last season’s show was.
