well, today is something just a little bit different! we’re stepping into the golden and glamourous age of train travel and hopping aboard a very magical british pullman. a belmond train carriage designed by none other than my favorite filmmaker Wes Anderson, who has reimagined a vintage train carriage, specifically the Cygnus—a carriage, part of the Belmond Train experiences. with his passion for craftsmanship and symmetrical modern design the new layout of the Cygnus car has been entirely thought out by Wes who says “I love trains! I had many opportunities to invent train compartments for my films, so when I was asked to do it in real life, I said ‘yes’ without hesitation”. This car dating from the 1920s is unveiled in an art nouveau style with aesthetics and colors faithful to those of the American filmmaker. Two new coupés – which can accommodate up to four people – allow you to experience an intimate journey with Champagne flowing afloat until the finish. departing from London, it’s one of just eleven on the British Pullman, whose carriages have hosted royalty, carried statesmen, and survived World War II bomb raids over the years. we’re going ‘full-on wes’ with an adorable pink plaid jumper i think he’d approve of, along with a black turtleneck, tights, and knee-high boots. pair that with a chic double-breasted coat, cashmere wrap, and bucket hat. don’t forget this vintage-inspired suitcase! as you leisurely roam the English countryside on board, i suggest checking out Wes Anderson: The Iconic Filmmaker and his Work – Unofficial and Unauthorised by ian nathan which is loaded with rich imagery and detailed analysis of Wes’s incredible films — like the train-centric darjeeling limited for example. aaaalllll aboard!!
