With a whistle and a cloud of steam, a blue train chugged Orient Express-style into the courtyard of the Paris Louvre, turned into the setting for Louis Vuitton’s spectacular Fashion Week show Wednesday. One by one the girls stepped down onto the platform-cum-runway in dizzying heels and 1900-style high hats, looking all the taller for being followed by white-gloved porters — deliberately cast short — carrying a bag in each hand.
 

The look was all about the romance of a journey, but without the nostalgia, explained the tattooed 48-year-old, dressed for the occasion in long black dress and laced boots, jet black hair and green eyes, looking exhausted but happy. “We just imagined this romantic notion. It’s the idea of the trip,” he said of the train motif.
 
Jacobs’ collection played heavily on contrasts between glitter and mat fabrics, with models stepping out in long skirts over cropped pants, and dresses with demure necklines and wide straps cupping the shoulder.
