I am not at all a fan of Louis Vuitton, so perhaps my opinion on all this is a bit tainted.
That disclaimer out of the way, Louis’ collaboration with Comme des Garcons is what happens when designer handbags are genetically altered in a petri dish…they grow strange handle appendages.
I find the plume of handles on the signature bag not only aethetically displeasing, but a pain in the well-dressed ass. Imagine trying to toss this bad-boy on your shoulder, only to be poked by the television antena handles.
The bag does lend itself to a certain avant-garde, haute couture vibe…but I’m just not feeling it.
Perhaps it’s my disdain for the signature LV logo emblazoned across so many of their leather goods, or perhaps its the afore mentioned mutant handles. Either way, I will not be lining up in Tokyo Sept. 4 when the bag goes on sale.
