The interwebs has been bashing it ever since its photo was released saying its a stupid garbage bag with a ridiculous price tag. I understand that the price is steep but this is no stupid bag, I actually think its witty. Am I the only one who likes/wants this?
Meet the now infamous Raindrop Besace from Louis Vuitton’s Spring/Summer 2010 collection that was inspired by the lifestyle of the New Age Travelers. This utilitarian “rain bag” combines a luxurious feel with a delightfully practical shape. Though described by its detractors as a cheap plastic bag, the Raindrop Besace is actually made from soft and sumptuous patent lambskin leather which features delicate pleats and printed with vintage Louis Vuitton graphic signature.
Other details include natural cowhide leather trimmings, an adjustable strap with Louis Vuitton signature webbing for comfortable shoulder or cross-body carry, a soft nylon jacquard lining with woven Monogram pattern an interior zipped pocket and a bright orange textile drawstring to change the shape of the bag.
Raindrop Besace measures 18.9″ x 13.4″ x 2.8″ and comes in two colors, Emeraud and Moka. Its available at Louis Vuitton stores for approx. US$2400. I truly love this bag especially the Moka and I wouldn’t mind receiving a complimentary piece… lol. But seriously, I WANT I WANT I WANT!
