It’s one thing to have free time in-between meals, and it’s another to window-shop especially when you’re not supposed to be shopping, because bad things always happen when you do. In other words, this was how I ended up with the Louis Vuitton Longisland Sneaker in Masai Tartan, something that for some reason I was unable to resist.
Priced at EUR390, it was the first thing that caught my eye when I was at Taipei 101 last night. It was also the first thing I saw when I wandered aimlessly in the Louis Vuitton boutique near my hotel. Made mostly of fabric in the print/pattern (part-Masai, part-tartan) that Kim Jones is very fond of, it’s a super lightweight sneaker that comes embellished with the French house’s graphic V in natural leather.
In other words, as soon as I tried them on I knew they had to be mine.
