When it comes to things that are Conspicuously Nice, it is very easy to think it’s somehow better because it says BRAND on it.
Hence the inexplicable appeal of some of the uglier COACH bags, Dooney and Burke purses, and of course, anything by Louis Vuitton.
That interlocked LV really is the epitome of Conspicuously Nice.
Those letters scream opulence and insane expense, regardless of whether whatever they’re on is cute, practical, or even sane. There are golf bags covered in the Louis Vuitton logo, and it comes as no surprise that it’s sold out, because people are tacky.
But the logo is noticeable and iconic.
It’s almost as iconic as the Chanel C’s, but somehow, it feels more overdone, even though I think every “popular” girl I went to high school with owned the EXACT SAME PAIR of Chanel earrings.
But Louis Vuitton?
There’s just something about it that has me mentally group it with Coach in terms of obnoxiously ubiquitous branding.
This is mildly more ridiculous than the Chanel logo embossed tennis racket I saw upon image searching, “Andre Leon Talley tennis“.
But only mildly.
Yes, that is a Louis Vuitton tennis racket case. I have NO concept of why this would even make sense.
It is so rare that high fashion and complete delusion run so squarely into each other.
I’m kind of impressed.
I mean it. I’m perversely impressed.
Usually when high fashion goes off the rails, it’s in the direction of weird, experimental looks that look like a punchline from Zoolander, not slamming the brand logo on some lady’s head.
Even McQueen, which goes spectacularly off the rails, has never done that.
It’s so bad that I love it.
She’s a walking advert for Louis Vuitton (note the scarf) AND tastelessness simultaneously.
It really is spectacular. I want to meet this woman and ask her what the hell made her decide to do that with her hair.
