PHOTOS: Louis Vuitton Takes Us On A Mad, Mod Escalator Ride

Last season, Marc Jacobs piled his models aboard the Louis Vuitton express, a custom-built steam engine that reportedly cost the house $8 million.

This year he toned it down a tad, merely installing functional escalators for the LV girls to ride on their way down to the lemon yellow-and-white checked runway. Checkers big and small made their way on to the clothes, too — the mod mood of Jacobs’ eponymous collection still prevailed, but this time it was twice as nice as models paraded down the sunny catwalk in mismatched pairs.

Microminis, bare midriffs, and cutesy cropped jackets spoke to a younger customer, but the accessories (that perpetual sweet spot for luxury brands) had wide-ranging appeal. Pointed-toe sling-backs, for instance, were not so vertiginous that the wearer couldn’t take the stairs should she so choose, but why would you when the alternative is so very chic?

Now, let’s start taking bets on the method of transportation that gets the Vuitton seal of approval next season. City bus? Horse and buggy? Unicycles?
