Certo è che mi dispiace per il povero Vuitton, simbolo di raffinatezza, lusso e alta qualità artigianale, ormai sopraffatto dal contraffatto.
It’s official. I hate Louis Vuitton bags…..or to be more precise, the fake ones.
Now, wherever you turn your glance you see the usual brown bag with the famous brand stand out. And most of them wear them with nonchalance and pride! From young 20 somethings wearing stretch jeans and trainers (an absolute crime against humanity) to the 50 somethings with flowing skirts and extra large jumpers (maybe adorned with a noticeable roots which is just so “natural”).
I am firmly convinced that certain “objects” are not within everyones reach, and it is quite evident that a Louis Vuitton will never be. Maybe the beauty of these bags also derives from the fact that they are unreachable for many common mortals.
It is for this reason that I prefer a normal bag, but “real” instead of “showing off” a fake one with pride.
Maybe no one would notice, but I’d know the truth. And I’d be the one to undervalue my most desired object because I’d be fully aware of its non-authenticity.
A believer in “rules”: “if you can’t afford it, don’t find short cuts”. I leave it up to you, what the right decision is.
I am of course sorry for Vuitton, a symbol of sophistication, luxury and excellence, which has been counterfeited over and over.
