Marcy Marc and the Funny Bunch

Now that I've happily extoled the virtues of Mr Jacobs. Let the games begin.

Dear Reader, I give you The Louis Vuitton Joke Bag.

No, not being rude, that's what it is. But its not big and its not clever and it most definitely isn't funny. Marc Jacobs collaborated with Richard Prince for the new collection of bags but the jokes came from comedian (?) Henry Youngman.

The point of the bag is its covered in jokes. Could make for some amusing banter, but it doesn't.

The jokes read like a ...actually just read them for yourselves.

I quote

"Every time I meet a woman who can cook like my Mother....She looks like my Father."

Oh dear. Next.

"My wife went to the beauty shop and got a mud pack. For two days she looked beautiful. Then the mud fell off".

Oh wowza. Dare i say next?

"I've been married for thirty years and I'm still in love with the same woman. If my wife ever finds out, she'll kill me."


And the piece de resistance...

"My wife is always asking for money. $200 one day, $150 the next, $125 after that. "That's crazy", my friend said. "What does she do with it? "I don't know", I said. "I never gave her any."

Maybe Marc needs to go back to rehab cos he must have been smoking the pipe to let this one through.

Or maybe the joke is on the women who buy it. You can just picture them in the design studio peeing their pants at the prospect of someone forking out $2000+ for such a silly bag. Maybe that's why its called the Joke Bag.

But here are more bags from the collection...I'll just bite my tongue for now.

No, no, no.

What poorly designed bags. I think it's very infuriating when established designers turn out absolute rubbish in the name of fashion just because... they can. Simply because they have become the major players in the industry, foolish people think every horrible thing they make is "fabulous"..

Makes me very angry. Oh yeah, I am on a desperate hunt for that Goldfinger bag.. I need to know how much it is. I'm thinking of writing an article about it on my blog. *Sigh* It makes me happy.
