One of the perks of being an A-list entertainer is that you can get the high end fashion brands to make cool, custom gear for you. Kanye recently unveiled this custom, oversized Louis Vuitton Damier Azure Backpack on his blog. The backpack features LV’s signature Damier Canvas print with light brown leather trim and supposedly, it took a year and a half to make. It won’t be making the boutiques, still there is chatter that this piece set Kanye back by $15,000. Some say it was $6,300, no idea.
I don’t care for Kanye, his cocky attitudes, nor his music, but getting Vuitton to make a custom piece to suit your needs (better: wants) is quite cool.
