My MANy Bags News #43
Have You 'GRAFFITIED' Yet?
Yes, today is the much 'anticipated' or 'dreaded' launch date of Louis Vuitton's Graffiti range, after much delay and hype for the lucrative Asia markets, SG included.
Some lost their interest, some stay away because of the present economic crisis, some simply did not care in the first place. All the hype for the range seem to have died down quite a bit with the delays after delays. Neverfull still never made its way to today's launch and will only appear sometime in March. I almost did not get as excited about today's launch as it did 2 weeks ago. Perhaps Louis Vuitton was foolish to push back the launch date for Asia while the rest of the world dig their hands onto the Graffiti range. We want to join in the fun when it all started...not when the heat has simmered and almost every interested shopper worldwide already had their taste and tease of a piece of Graffiti piece.
So the question begs....Have you 'GRAFFITIED' yet?
I went to Louis Vuitton Ngee Ann City after work this evening expecting a crowd ...but to my surprise...the store was quiet, like what Mondays should be. I got in without queuing. I found my sweet SA (who was the only one bothered to call me about what I reserved at the store and remembered me..shame on all the snobbish SAs. I could be a BIG customer:-P) and the rest is 'baked beans' history. :-P
So my answer to my question...YES, I HAVE!
