    Default Louis Vuitton's $1,960 Trash Bag Purse

    No more boring monogrammed bags! Louis Vuitton's new "Raindrop Besace" purse ditches LV's usual luxury wingdings for a more-tasteful French inscription. It comes in green and brown, and it's waterproof. It costs $1,960.
    And it looks like a trash bag.


    The fashion house's designer Marc Jacobs has previously questioned the sanity of his customers, saying, "There's this huge cult following of almost crazy people at Vuitton who just want whatever they buy to be exclusive." We're eager to see who will be the first to tout this tote.
    But on the plus side, we've never seen an easier do-it-yourself project. Not that we're encouraging the production of counterfeit handbags.
    What do you think?

    LOVE it--I'm so into Garbage Man Chic!
    HATE it--I'd like to toss it to the curb!

    They are better looking than the rest of their designs.

    I agree. Just buy a thick garbage bag, make a strap, and add a ribbon. Voila! All for around $3.00.

    It makes you wonder if sometimes designers make things just to see if they can get away with it.

    That inscription is supposed to be more tasteful? On the brown bag it is no subtler than the wingdings. They definitely belong at the curb.

    I'd be tempted to put my empty coffee cup in it.

    I know they must. A trash bag with an almost $2k price tag says plenty about what they think about the intelligence of their customers.

    Marc Jacobs is a rubbish designer anyway and this proves it.

    How stupid and vapid does a person have to be to want to spend that amount of moolah on such an atrocity?
