After Marc Jacob’s created a full scale train for last February’s presentation of the Louis Vuitton F/W 2012 Woman’s Ready-to-Wear collection, he sent his models down the runway with their own personal porters. It seems the designer has officially deemed train travel a luxury once again, on behalf of the entire jet set. The porter of course is paramount to this experience, a discreet but key figure in the Art of Travel.
Director John Wright put this idea to work for their short film in support of the collection, Pret-a-Porters. Beautiful and hypnotic, thousands of porters stand in attention to a single elegantly dressed figure, capping an exceptional return by the brand to their origins as a luggage purveyor.
