The Material Boy #209
Louis Vuitton 'Stephen Sprouse' Graffiti Neverfull GM
Again, with the much talked about online, Louis Vuitton Stephen Sprouse collection slowly trickling into LV stores worldwide, I present yet another of my lust from the collection. I have sorted out my thoughts, if I decide to fall deeper into the 'baked beans abyss'...I will 'invest' in art (if it is art, doesn't that not count as shopping?) and practicality. So collaborations with artist such as Stephen Sprouse fits the criteria seamlessly. Dun art increase in value over time?:-P
After much 'inside my mind' debate, I have decided the bag to get from the Graffiti collection will be the Graffiti Neverfull GM In Orange instead of Keepall. I think I do not travel that often to be putting good use of the $investment$ in a keepall.:-) But a Neverfull could see me using it week after week....till it's seen the bag heavens and RIP upon its useful life. Plus, the mini graffiti lining sold the bag for me, to be honest.
And the Graffiti Neverfull is loud, screaming and eye bewildering. Could work well as a protection against traffic mishaps on the road, as the drivers could probably spot you from 'a mile' away. :-) There are 3 neon colours of green, orange and pink to choose from, so there is a colour for every guy, gal, straight, gay, white, black, yellow, brown, old, young person on earth. How cool is that? Bag democracy?
Lastly of course, all my blabberings here on this post, is hypothetical blogging as if I am really going to buy the bag. I think I need 'assassins' to murder the angel on my right shoulder before I can proceed with no 'guilt' for this purchase. Am I ready for that? The good in me is struggling:-( Decisions, decisions...Hahaha. I am going loony tunes now.
(BTW, go watch MILK...Sean Penn's acting is exceptional:-P)
