I can’t even remember the last time I bought a Louis Vuitton bag or wanted one. The prices just keep going higher. The stuff wasn’t exciting. The last thing I got was a wallet. I still think Louis Vuitton makes the best wallets.
Now this Kusama thing I was into. When I first saw the lookbook I was kind of disappointed because I found the styling so kenkoy. Nevertheless I was still interested in Vuitton’s latest collab with Japanese pop artist Yayoi Kusama.
I was lucky to be invited to be among the first to see the collection at Greenbelt 4. I came in around 11:30 and found the VIP room so wonderfully arranged.
They had framed photos of Yayoi Kusama and the lookbook
Wallets, coin purse, agenda
Shoes and other accessories
And food by Lusso—for me???
I was kind of embarrassed. The food looked too pretty to eat.
I took two of the salmon sandwiches and ate them quickly as I had some business to do.
I took the red polka-dotted Vernis Lockit bag and tried it on
I checked the store’s iPad to see what’s available
I even compared the Louis Vuitton wallet to my Comme des Garçons wallet (LV wins!)
I left and had lunch with my girlfriends at People’s Palace. Then I texted my benefactor who gave me the go signal.
I went back to the store and made a decision: this one.
I chose it because of its size and weight (not as heavy as vernis). It has an optional shoulder strap.
I transferred my things and used it right away.
I kind of feel so guilty having it, just like the food they served me. I’m not worthy.
I thought about some people who regretted not getting a Sprouse bag from the first collection or a Richard Prince when it was available. Yayoi Kusama is 89 years old. I don’t think I’ll be able to afford her art ever, but I have this bag and it’s here and it’s mine.
