If you haven’t already noticed, there is a disturbing trend of designer labels turning everyday items into luxury jewelry. How is it disturbing, you ask? Well, because it, IMHO, may be a sign of creativity apocalypse. Designers have run out of ideas.
Do you know that Louis Vuitton once had a set of monogram boxing gloves? It did, in 2014. To celebrate the Parisian fashion house 160th anniversary, it collaborated with six artists and designers in 2014 to redefine its iconic monogram.
Luxury designer fashion brand selling gadgets is not new. More often than not, these fashion-branded gadgets are pretty unremarkable; they are mostly regular looking devices with the designer brand’s name slapped on it. Case in point: LV‘s very own Horizon TWS earbuds. Not with the Louis Vuitton Horizon Light Up Speaker, though.
It looks like Channel is not alone in turning surfboard into a designer thing. Louis Vuitton is selling a surfboard too. Called Louis Vuitton Surf On The Beach Board, this striking, limited edition blue-to-orange gradient surfboard is features multimedia artist Alex Israel’s signature iridescent colors drawn from an LA sunset.
This is Louis Vuitton Airplane Bag by LV menswear artistic director/Off-White founder, Virgil Abloh. Up until before Abloh’s involvement, LV was never radical like, you know, Balenciaga, and never associated with being artistic. Basically, it is the way purist like me like. But things have changed, the Airplane Bag is one example.
While we do not know if you will able to turn heads with the wearable city jackets, Louis Vuitton has a few pieces of winter wear you can buy now that will have just the same level of head-turning effect. Folks, these are the Louis Vuitton Pupper Baseball Jacket and Hoodie.
You know what they said about wearing the city. OK. Never mind that no such saying exists, but with Louis Vuitton Wearable Cityscape Jackets from the Parisian label’s Fall/Winter 2021 collection, you can literally wear the city.
Are you a huge Louis Vuitton fan? Are you disappointed that LV isn’t selling LV-branded face mask? Well, you are in luck. LV may not sell face masks, but The Custom Movement will sell you one.
Straight out of Louis Vuitton’s 2021 Cruise Collection is an unexpected and yet somewhat expected item: a monogram-print face shield. It is sad and at the same time funny. A luxury face shield. Imagine that.
The beauty of an open economy is, there is something for everyone and by ‘everyone’, we do mean financial standing. Like, for example, when at the beach, the not so well-to-do can do activities like swimming, surfing and more while the richie rich can do the same, but with a little luxury.
