Louis Vuitton Tribute Handbag: Love It or Hate It?

Wowsers. The prices of designer handbags are really starting to get out of control. New from Louis Vuitton is this limited edition (and I mean limited - there are only four available in the US) "Tribute Bag."

It is a mish-mosh of styles and patterns of 15 LV bags of past generations sewn together to create a patchwork design. Last month during Paris Fashion Week it was deemed a "Frankenstein Monster." Ouch.

Brace yourself if you are even the slightest bit intrigued because this controversial purse has a shocking price-tag of $42,000!

I have to say it: this bag ain't even all that! It is confusing, and I know that this statement may be in poor taste, but it kind of makes me wonder if Marc Jacobs was relapsing when he designed this.

It looks like something Mary-Kate Olsen would wear when she's dressed in her granny clothes. Sorry, we're not loving it in the least, what do you all think?!

This is the most godawful piece of crap I've ever seen. This is proof that many designer items are ridiculously overpriced. This probably cost 100 bucks to make, TOPS.

uh yeah, marc jacobs must be relapsing to have designed this grotesquely overpriced piece of crap! and beyonce proves her unwavering level of narcissism and materialism by carrying it around. they should both be ashamed of themselves...together they're projecting everything that's wrong with this world!

ugh, you could buy a brand new porsche for that much! It looks like the sewing machine blew up. I'd be surprised to see anyone sane with that bag.

I think it was appropriate to call it "frankenstein monster". That's exactly it! I would never pay 42K for this bag. Even if I could AFFORD to drop 42K on a bag.

Anyone who buys this has more money than sense "If you want the rainbow you got to take the rain too. You know which "philosopher" said that? Dolly Parton. And people say she's just a big pair of t*ts."

I don't think so. As far as I'm concerned it needs to go back to the purses and satchels that they originally were!

I think the mismatched sytle look is fun, it screamed 'individuality', because traditionally this look came from having a simple purse/pants/jacket and adding little bits of your own choosing(big buttons, fringe, patches, whatev), thus making it an item ot represent 'you'. Purchasing this 'colage of personality' purse seems to defeat the concept, let alone paying that much for it.

i just threw up... I guarantee the ONLY reason people will want it is because of the ridiculous price tag and exclusivity of the nasty thing. I am willing to bet that Paris Hilton is walking around with one within a week. And seriously, people who love it, please please explain why. Why, dear god, why????
