Louis Vuitton



Louis Vuitton is tacky, hmm?
I see awful fatties carrying around Louis Vuitton bags on the streets, and people who obviously can't afford Chanel trying to see fake Louis Vuitton on the sidewalks.
There goes the fatties, I think as they walk past me (and supress my vommit). There's a few fatties in the fashion industry too, you know. At least they're intelligent. But these fatties who are walking past me are stupid fatties because they think that buying a bag that says "LV" makes them fabulous. It's actually become a joke for us designers, hm? Whenever we see someone with a Vuitton bag we have to supress a snicker.

Louis Vuitton is fashion McDonalds, non?

Even Marc Jacobs- the man responsible for these bags at Vuitton laughs at his customers behind their backs. Well. When I say "responsible" I mean he draws a colour, fabric, and pattern randomly out of a hat. It's a very nice hat, mind you. This is the Marc Jacobs for Louis Vuitton design process at work. He calls it the "sorting hat".

So here is the lesson: Do not come in with a Louis Vuitton bag to a Chanel store (I have instructed security to bounce anyone who tries to), a Fendi store, or anywhere near me.

Love, Karl

i HATE louis vuitton. it's tacky, tacky, tacky!!

i must admit, i went through my LV phase in my late teens/early twenties (collected over 18 bags, all real, min you), but i am SOOO over it. frankly, i don't know what i was thinking. seeing an LV makes me nauseous. it's like....coach.

that is my new favourite line of the day..."Louis Vuitton is the fashion Macdonalds"...how so very true.....(and demode). That Marc gets tackier by the minute and i don't understand why people adore him so. I guess they have to make do since they certainly would not be allowed (or fit) through Chanel's door.

It's not just tacky, but the quality is pretty bad too. My friend bought one from a real LV store. Nine months later, it shriveled. I suspect that a fake one would have lasted longer. Either way, they're just awful.

Yeah, I sometimes see people walking around with a Louis Vuitton bag and admittedly, I judge them. I think basically, "You wasted money on an ugly purse. You are advertising your bad taste, and the fact that you throw money away."

If you want an LV bag, just buy a white cloth bag. I will eat alphabet soup and barf in it. Voila.

And for an extra $1000, I will spray paint it black and draw two Cs on it.

All of you guys are such faggots. Dont be screaming and crying because NONE of you can afford a Louis Vuitton OR Chanel. Dont think carrying a $4000+ bag will make you look all classy. And this stupid old fart Karl can go kiss my ass. You guys are such faggots. Go back to your Coach and Kate Spade and Juicy and go suck your dad's dick, dumbshit.

I'm sorry to disagree. It's not because some people that use them are tacky that it becames instantly tacky. If that was true, then it would be the see for any single brand. I live in Paris and I've seen loads of tacky women wearing chanel, louis vuitton, fendi... I believe that your inner elegance counts more than a bag, wether you paid for it 400 dollars, 2000 or 3 bucks on a friperie. (Audrey Hepburn, my all-time style icon, were LV bags and they looked great hanging on her arm, cause she wasactually wearing the bag, and not the bag that was wearing her).

Smart Post Karl. I agree with you about how people carry LV bags thinking it instantly makes them "chic" and fashionable. However, I don't think all LV bags suck, only the ones with the "LV" monograms on that brownish, tobacco spit color bags. Now those bags are terribly tacky and are definitely "fashion Mcdonalds" haha.

Funny, since I was a kid I have always thought LV is utterly tacky.

No offense but I know Karl didn't write this because he has custom pieces of Louis Vuitton and also works for LVMH as the head director for Fendi. If he actually said this he would be fired from CHANEL and LV as quickly as John Galliano was by Dior.

Using the same theory that money spent makes them look like dicks, whats the difference in chanel or lv? The more spent the bigger dick???

Bambola said...

I think the person who wrote this is quite unintelligent. Regardless of your taste in designers and handbags, it is pure stupidity to assume that the only bags 'sported' by fatties are Louis Vuitton'... I assure you I see just as many tacky fake Chanel purses on fat dimpled arms as Louis Vuittons! Further, for all the truly moronic people reading this (and certainly the moronic author) that picture of the orphan holding the LV bag was a statement against the entire high fashion industry, not just Louis Vuitton. It was specifically in relation to the way in which the media Prioritises it's reportings and neglects real world issues. I assure you that Statement was just as targeted at Chanel and every other high fashion house as it was at Louis Vuitton.

The ignorance and stupidity exhibited here really makes me lose faith in this world's future.. Oh my God...

Every people has different views of Louis Vuitton Handbags Sale.But now a lot of vogue amounts to a person all have complex bag, bag like life, love is a kind of simple,Freedom and along with the gender life attitude. Along with the urban white-collar pressure is more and more big,Symbol to break free, enjoy free Louis Vuitton canvas bag life get more people like.
Fashion is still popular, canvas bag popular trend constantly replacement, full of beautiful Louis Vuitton things in eyes of fashion accessories would always let a person find everything new and fresh.

Angelic said...

It's so twisted and yes this pic is sick and beyond racist . Is this really his blog even? I just can't believe that a person that makes clothes in hopes women will buy from them would talk about ppl this way , that has to hurt business or maybe the vapid idiots don't care . The truth is none of its any better than the rest , it's just crap sewn and thrown together , some pretty yes , but none what they try to make us believe it is. Someone who is really noone ( just another person God made that will die just like the rest of us) is told he is great until he believes it and then the mindless idiots follow . Noone is beter than anyone, Chanel isn't better than LV , ppl are ppl and a handbag is a f'ing bag so it's only as good as you make it, buy what you love , that's the whole point right ! Don't buy anything to please anyone else , I will never get why ppl care what others think ...who gives a F !!! They're just ppl and most of them are vain and vapid so you're not missing out ;) I say who gives a shit what some older than dirt Fucker with one foot in the grave says , if you like it wear it , if you don't then wear something else . There's a concept ! Be yourself !
