I don’t even know where to begin with the images from the Louis Vuitton Malletier ad campaign, which some have called dishonest for portraying the idea that everything at Louis Vuitton is indeed hand-made, which is definitely not the case.
But Mark (of Freshmess fame), sums it up most aptly by saying this…
‘And every now and then, we need a little stroke of romance behind the products we buy. That at one point or another, the bag we carry or the shoe we put on has been touched, hand-finished and brushed by a skilled artisan at a workshop in a French countryside.
After all, when we buy a Louis Vuitton, we buy a dream, a love story. And at other times, more than we’d like to admit, we buy an illusion.’
I couldn’t agree more. And Mark, if you’re reading this, let it be known that I’m officially smitten with the Louis Vuitton New Taiga Cabas Zippé. I saw it today, fell in love with it and almost brought it home.
