I have been actively avoiding discussing this Louis Vuitton bag with you all. It is not because I wanted to keep the goodness from you, rather the fact that I am still shocked Louis Vuitton made this line. And I really quite like the Spring 2010 LV bags, being extremely pleased with my purchases from the Spring collection, the Monogram Cheche Bohemian and foxy tail.
Then we have this bag, the Louis Vuitton Raindrop Besace. You must read on to see what I am talking about.
When I saw it in the look book I immediately thought trash bag. That thought has still not left my mind. It looks like a Hefty bag with a shoulder strap and writing on the front. Louis Vuitton calls it a utilitarian rain bag with pull ties and a printed vintage Louis Vuitton logo. But it is ugly. And still seems like a joke. And looks like a kitchen garbage bag. And costs nearly $2,000.
Sure, Marc Jacobs is known to bring in pieces that get us talking (no one can forget the LV Tribute Patchwork Bag). But this is pushing it. I truly do not know one person that will look at this bag and see anything other than a garbage bag. I suppose some could call it imaginative, but I will not even give it that. In the very least, this bag got me and others talking about Louis Vuitton, and maybe that is precisely what they wanted. $1960 via Louis Vuitton.
