Louis Vuitton 'New Age Traveler' backpack

Yikes!  Louis Vuitton is at it again!  First, there was the trash bag (Urban Satchel), then the actual trash bag (Raindrop Besace), and now this monstrosity!  At first glance it looks like a monster devouring worms... well, those are actually telephone cords.  I wonder how many telephone units were sacrificed to feed this monster of a bag.  Geez!  I couldn't comprehend why this is named New Age because for one, telephone cords are almost obsolete. Oh! I get it!  Since corded telephones will soon be obsolete, Louis Vuitton is just trying to  help Mother Earth so they thought of recycling the cords.  Maybe later they'd think of something to do with the actual telephone... a belt bag that you have to key in your PIN using the telephone dial for it to open?  The possibilities are endless.  Did that make any sense?  By the way, this bag costs $54,500!!!!  Maybe, just maybe, if anyone will buy this bag, proceeds will go to LV's supported environmental group... that's a good idea, isn't it?  Under normal circumstances, I couldn't think of anyone who would want to buy this. 

Who designed this, anyway?  Why can't they just stick with what they are known for -- classic style?  To see more of LV's unique and out of this world creations, click here and be amazed.  Don't tell me I didn't warn you.

Emilio Pucci fringed suede shoulder bag

Cute!  I love the color.  This is a different take to the fringe.  I don't think this would look good with a cocktail dress as suggested by Net-a-Porter.  Nevertheless, it looks cool to carry with or without the strap.  You can grab this bag here.
