Louis Vuitton - What Rubbish! ..??

After many umm.. minutes of playing on the 'Sexy City' Application on Facebook, I noticed one of the handbags for sale on the game at Barneys New York was the 'Louis Vuitton Urban Satchel'.. & I thought to myself is that rubbish stuck to a handbag? ... how fricken ugly!..

Ok so I might be a bit slow when it comes to fashion & a bit slow with the times, after all I am a single mother on a low income currently living in the sticks, who rarely watches tv might I add ;), but after numerous 'when in doubt google it' searches it would seem that people have been lead to believe that this infact is a real item! LOL... Far out.. Now here is an article from one site... people are so gullible, so figured I would be the first blog (ok maybe 2nd? ;P) to state why this is a fake and basically making a mockery of the 'patchwork handbags' by Louis Vuitton :

The World's Most Expensive Handbag

Much discussion has erupted over the recent announcement of the $45,000 Loius Vuitton bag. Only two dozen were made, and despite the fact they look like something a lawnmower chewed up, all have quickly sold out. If you think paying $45,000 is outrageous, then get a load of this Loius Vuitton $150,000 Urban Satchel debuting for Spring 2008:


Made of the world's finest Italian leather, this one-of-a-kind luxury handbag is hand-crafted with carefully chosen "urban charms". The proud owner of this exclusive handbag will be able to flaunt her impeccable style and lavish taste to a world that can only dream about owning such a rare and precious possession. Medium: an old purse found in the back of my closet, rubber cement, various bits of trash found on the sidewalks of San Francisco.


Ashley Olsen has signed a multimillion dollar endorsement deal to advertise the $150,000 Urban Satchel in upcoming issues of Vogue. It's rumored the Olsen Twins are locked in heated battle over who gets to purchase the bag, while Anna Wintour and Victoria Beckham have started a nasty bidding war for it.

I hate to say it, but the $45,000 bag pictured above looks sooooo last season compared to the innovative design of the Urban Satchel.

Exotic Excess - $150,000 Urban Satchel from Louis Vuitton

Most Expensive Handbag Louis Vuitton Satchel


OK here's where I come in to ruin anyone's hopes of owning & spending 150 grand on one of these pieces of junk...

For starters did anyone notice the name underneath the picture - LOUIE VUITTON ?

or how about the fact it states: Medium: Photoshop collage.

Does anyone not notice the crappy drop shadow effect on the picture & how badly photshopped Ashley Olsen is carrying the bag.. ok I'm a graphic designer maybe I would only notice this..

Did it state exactly what the rubbish items were made from? Do you think that a real shrimp tail stuck to a bag would not 'go off' and start to smell after awhile and you'd be followed by cats everywhere u went as it slowly started to disintergrate?

This particular description on a fashion website - New Luxury Items makes me laugh -

"A hip and high hit with teen fashion flaunters, Urban Satchel Louis Vuitton Bag mirrors avant-gardism of the ever-changing fashion world. Crafted from all sorts of urban junk like cigarette packets, water bottle, tea bags and band aid, the handbag is lavish and luxury fashion accessory with charms of beauty. "

Charms of beauty?? Its amazing how you can have a label , name and price tag can make snotty fashion people believe that rubbish stuck to a metallic pink plastic looking handbag is beautiful!

I guess the dirty bandaid & crumpled ciggy packet attached was not enough to make people realise it is a joke & sending up other Louis Vuitton patchwork handbags which have been labelled as both ugly & extremely expensive ($45,000)

This is an actual Louis Vuitton Tribute Patchwork Bag.

most expensive purse in the world louis vuitton

OK so I did a search of the urban satchel on the Louis Vuitton website, and no mention of it there.. what a shame I bet so many people out there wanted to own one of the 2 dozen that were supposably created.. lol

That's right... what a load of rubbish!
