Louis Vuitton luggage has been a fairly hot topic here on PB as of late. I’ve read your comments extensively, and PB reader feelings on the issue are pretty neatly divided between, “It’s tacky and overpriced,” and, “If you can afford it, flaunt it.” Today we’re not dealing with massive piles of LV, just a single, customized Louis Vuitton Mon Monogram Pegase Suitcase that’s being wheeled around NYC by none other than Alexa Chung. If you can indeed afford it, and wish to flaunt it, you can customize your own Pegase on Louis Vuitton for $3,600. (Want a peek at the rest of Alexa’s designer bag collection? Check out “The Many Bags of Alexa Chung”.)
Seeing people with rolling suitcases (who aren’t tourists) is fairly common in Manhattan because it’s one of the handier ways to transport a heavy load without taking a cab, but you rarely see someone famous doing it with a $3,600 piece of Louis Vuitton. Stars, they’re just like…oh, nevermind.
