Louis Vuitton once again raised the bar at their Autumn/Winter 2012 Parade transforming a large courtyard of the Louvre into a lifesize train station, complete with ornately arching ironwork and a giant station clock. As the clock struck 10, steam began to emerge, a false floor was pulled back to reveal train tracks, and the Louis Vuitton express – a handsome one-carriage train built especially for the show – pulled into the “station”.
