Louis, Louis: Louis Vuitton x Comme des Garçons

A few weeks back we told you about a newly announced collaboration between Louis Vuitton and Comme des Garçons. Nitrolicious gave us a sneak peak at the line and I must admit, I was a bit disappointed. I think I was expecting more from Rei Kawakubo. Her design is so unique and always takes me by surprise and I felt that the pieces were either boring or ugly or a combination of both. I know! So weird! I love LV but I’m just not feeling this. My favorite is the multi-handle speedy because I feel like I can see the CDG personality show through – somewhat playful, irreverant and unique.

The other pieces are a bit boring. Look, see what I mean:

These are bags from the regular Louis Vuitton collection:

Here is the Louis Vuitton x Comme des Garçons version:

Really? The thing that makes these bags so uniquely LV x CDG is that Rei Kawakubo took off the tan leather trim? You added darker trim so it already looks old? Not sure if it’s just me but one of the extreme pleasures I get in buying new LV bags is watching the light tan leather get darker with age. I was expecting so much more!! This is in no way hate for LV. I love LV so I suppose I hold them to a very high standard – and I feel like this collaboration falls short.

Some more boring bags after the jump . . .

I’m sure there are some that think the little animals are cute. They’re ok, but I feel like every other company has done this and if I’ve come to expect one thing from CDG, it’s an element of surprise.
