SHANGHAI — “When we first arrived it was dark, and seeing all the lights, I just thought, ‘Wow, it’s so futuristic-looking,’” Marc Jacobs said of his arrival in Shanghai. Though he has visited Hong Kong several times, this marks his first time to Mainland China. “The little time I’ve been here so far, I’ve enjoyed, and it looks cool.”
Jacobs made the trip for the major initiative celebrating the reopening on Wednesday of Louis Vuitton’s newly renovated, massive Maison store in the Plaza 66 shopping mall. Two days of festivities concluded Thursday night with a complete restaging of the brand’s fall travel-themed ready-to-wear show, for which the now-famous, specially commissioned train was shipped in.
