Show report: Louis Vuitton autumn/winter 2012

Louis Vuitton knows how to make an entrance. At 10am sharp, steam filled the show tent in the usual location in the courtyard of the Louvre and a train emblazoned with the house’s insignia rolled into the middle of the space – the driver using a whistle that was rumoured to be encrusted with diamonds. Models disembarked from the train, assisted by porters who carried their luggage. And what luggage it was: jewelled holdalls and handbags, hat-boxes and doctors’ bags in tweed and horsehair.
