Kusama Day
Posted on

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.

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.

Why is LV so expensive in Manila? So frustrating! The Kusama lockit is 184k here. It’s less than 150k in Europe! May tax refund pa yon! Sigh…

Did you see the collar? I want one! I like the choice you made, but honestly I prefer the waves design and I was disappointed to see that none of the bags had that print, not even the wallets. Sigh.

i still prefer cdg’s iconic dots over lv’s.  

i was a dorky grad student not too long ago with almost zero fashion quotient.  then i had my first exposure to the cdg aesthetic via this blog.  all i could say is thank goodness for sample sales.

The LV logo is not very obvious on the purely polka dotted bags and purses. Sayang lang if you’re buying an LV bag and no one knows you’re carrying an LV bag, di ba?

No offense meant but you buy things like LV because of the quality and style, not primarily to show off, right? 🙂

Love that you chose that one. I think it’s the perfect bag to showcase this collab, with just the right amount of dots on it. I noticed that the strap is at the middle of the bag. Does the bag fold over when you use the strap? Would love to see pics of you wearing it different ways.:)

CVS Reply:

yes you have to fold it in the middle to use the shoulder strap

I was planning to get the little coin purse in yellow or red. But, I almost fainted … it costs HK4,400! But, you are right, this is art.
