With everyone from Jessica Simpson to Ashley Tisdale and Uma Thurman adorning their arms with Louis Vuitton’s monogram totes, it’s no wonder the LV logo is so instantly recognizable. But the brand is shaking things up this autumn with a new ultra-exclusive line designed in collaboration with iconic Japanese fashion line Comme des Garcons. Each of the six avant-garde bags puts a spin on classic Louis Vuitton designs — like this eight-armed Speedy. Even if you have the superstar salary to afford one of the limited edition bags, getting your hands on one will require a jet-set lifestyle to go along with it. The collection will available to order exclusively in person at the Louis Vuitton mini-store inside the Comme des Garcons boutique in Tokyo, starting September 4th. Looking for something a little closer to home? You’ll be able to get a more budget-friendly Comme des Garcons fix this fall when the company’s founder and head designer, Rei Kawakubo, takes a turn as a featured guest designer at H&M, designing a women’s and men’s collections in early November. Tell us: What do you think of LV’s latest look? Will you buy from Comme des Garcon’s lower-priced collaboration with H&M this fall?

The ONLY reason to get this bag is to flaunt how much money you have. Gross.

Jan on

Only in person? Frankly I’m tired of the exclusivity of this kind of stuff. What… do people actually sit around and discuss the hoops to make people go through to get stuff? Is that supposed to make people extra special? Or the item more special? Well sorry to burst their bubble but I don’t want it more, or yearn for it more just because it’s a limited edition that is almost impossible to get! Same for Nike and their “Back to the Future” shoes. We’re all on this earth to live and die, so I wish they’d just stop trying so hard.

Milly on

Exclusive?? Yeah right! This bag is ugly and unnecessary. Limited edition or not,I will be ashamed to carry it even if it was for free. Its like those stupid super weird front heeled shoes Marc Jacobs designes and few ‘exclusive’ females were walking around in it.So, did I envy them? Right! I laughed my a*s*s off.

Allie on

sounds like u r all JEALOUS!!:P

Cucumber eyes on

:S what can you do with this bag? put it on your desk and say “how exclusive is my new LV bag” and that’s just it…

Des on

This bag looks like a monster. I did not know this was the actual bag. Yes, I love the designer brands and looks but this was is a MISS not a HIT!

bigwow on

The LV bags are all ugly. I can’t stand anything that has a logo plastered all over it. Why is that fashionable?

Kim v on

Allie, you’re right – I am jealous of people who have money to throw away on crap like this. I like to think that if I had that kind of money, I would still recognize that this “super exclusive” bag is ugly as sin. I’d rather donate the money to a charity and actually help someone who needs it.

jane on

fugly.

Nicole on

The design of this bag is ugly and I don’t care who the designed the bag.

luvembabe on

LV bags are going down hill fast. the designs are just really ugly and cheap looking. I miss the old LV .

Mel on

Though I am a fan of LV pieces and have a handbag now going on ten years and still looking good… this paticular bag is downright ugly.

bigwow on

To add to my previous post – besides the fact that these logo laden purses are ugly, another turn-off of the brand is the fact that desperate dingbat Jessica Simpson is frequently seen with a giant LV bag hanging front & center.

Bacardi on

lol….@ Allie you can’t get that bag either so….lmao. anyway envy?….LV or not the bag is “exclusively” ugly …and you can count on a boat load of jack a**es to dedicate there time into getting one .

LRS on

That looks weird.. and how are you suppose to hold the bag with so many handles in different sizes?

Gina on

Suuuupppperrrr…..FUGLY. Would not carry this even if it was free. It would however look good in the trashcan.

Socialite Dreams on

YUCK – I am usually a LV FAN. This is bordering on plain stupid – DESIGNERS – start designing something that would thrill us, not BORE us!! I would hate to see who would buy this.

Oxy on

Well as much as people may hate logos all over everything, louis vuitton made their brand based on that ages ago when others weren’t doing that. Now all companies use logos to sell so we’re tired of seeing it, but this is just their brand. It may not appeal to everyones taste but then again who’s to say a bag thats plain is gorgeous and who’s to say this one sucks? Its just personal opinions. If you wear it right, you can make a potato sack look hot. =)

Tina on

EVERYONE HERE IS JUST JEALOUS :p :p :p
IT IS A GORGEOUS BAG.. AND WITH LOUIS VUITTON WHAT YOU PAY FOR IS WHAT YOU GET!!

ashley on
