Countdown to Aquarelle (we are slaves to LV)
So the limited edition Aquarelle/Watercolour speedy 35 is supposed to be released on May 1, depending on who your sources are/how good a customer you are at Louis Vuitton.
The Aquarelle line is from LV's Spring/Summer 2008 collection and featured bags designed by collaborators Richard Prince and Marc Jacobs.
Now some may say "My two-year-old niece could paint something with her fingers and the result could be better than than those bags" and you people may have a point. It certainly isn't an original, fashion-forward design, but c'mon, this is Louis Vuitton we're talking about. The company recycles the monogram style so that middle-class customers can keep emptying out their bi-monthly paycheques for a design that essentially stays the same.
I guess I am one of those people who has fallen under Bernard Arnault's evil spell. (Photo: The Purse Forum)
