You already know how I feel about the fashindustry and how much I love everything around the catwalks. And the following will only help me exemplify just why is that.
Have you heard about the latest bag issued by Louis Vuitton? It’s called the Louis Vuitton Raindrop Besace and it looks like this: (and most important, it only costs $2,000!) (the story continues right after the jump with more images!)
With every season passing by, I’m drowning more and more into a strange conviction: Marc Jacobs is the very essence of this world’s snobbery! He’s taking advantage of every schmancyness and he’s turning garbage in gold! Because he can. Because he’s allowed to. Because you’ll never see the likes of Queen Bee wearing a trash bag for a luxury bag if there was not for Marc Jacobs turning one into a luxury bag for Louis Vuitton! And I bet you he’s enjoying this! All of this!
First of all, because you know I always research deeper than the nearest source, you should know that the association Louis Vuitton and trash bags isn’t at its firsts with this Raindrop Besace here. Oh, no! No other brand has ever faced such a counterfeit reactivity such as Louis Vuitton! It’s the very essence of our consumerist society: people are willing to wear anything even remotely similar to the original Louis Vuitton products. They’re even willing to spawn that Louis Vuitton love onto everything they touch: household apparel, cars, food! There’s simply no stopping the LV tagging!
If any of you artists standing by cares enough to make it happen, let there be a globe fully covered in LV monograms! It’ll simply show how far we’ve reached in our need to be socially recognized, to identify ourselves as what we wear. Marc Jacobs is fully aware of this hysteria and he’s pushing the madness even deeper, further. How long are we willing to take this? How far are we willing to take the LoVe? As far as paying $2,000 for a trash bag and then wear it out in the open, like it would be some kind of social trophy? (via 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6,7)
