Ask any Louis Vuitton lover, and they will tell you that owning, holding, strutting around in an LV is a vibe. It’s like a love affair with fashion where practicality is happily thrown out of the window. That’s precisely why any fashionista would happily make holes in her own budget to get her French-manicured fingers on the Louis Vuitton pre-owned x Comme Des Garçons burned holes monogram tote. Yes, the accessory looks extremely well worn and has three holes through it. Still, it’s a unique purchase designed by Comme Des Garcons’ founder Rei Kawakubo six years ago for Vuitton’s Iconoclasts collection. Certainly, not meant for any practical purposes, the handbag attracts attention not only owing to the fashion house’s trademark dark brown leather and its most desired monogram but largely because of the three unmissable, enormous holes that have earned it the title- a pickpocketer’s dream!
The pre-owned LV x Comme Des Garçons burned holes monogram tote is currently selling for a whopping $11,900 on FarFetch.com and looks nice featuring a monogram pattern, gold-tone hardware, round top handles, an internal logo patch, a hanging luggage tag, a drawstring closure, and a removable lining. Do bear in mind that this piece has led a previous life, and may tell its story through minor imperfection. For this price, I would certainly go for the new ‘The LV Crafty’ collection or the Louis Vuitton Montsouris Backpack I have been eyeing for a long time and still save me some money to also buy Louis Vuitton’s gold monogram earphone earrings.
