Buzz Aldrin, Sally Ride, Jim Lovell for Louis Vuitton

louisvuittonjourneys.jpg

Louis Vuitton is the most worthless, overhyped fashion brand ever to exist, but I can comfortable ignore that for putting three great spacers in their latest ad campaign. I can’t ever imagine owning any LV crap myself, but now I sort of want to see a space suit covered in fleur-de-lis. [via Racked]

    Picture is great. Three true American heroes.

    “Fashion” as a whole is insignificant and unimportant.

    Louis Vuitton isn’t forcing anyone to pay for anything, obviously there are consumers this appeals to and for any item in any industry, there will always be top-tier products defined as superior and luxurious. Sure you might think the price is not in line with the product, but if that were truly the case, then the company would never have been able to survive- and to date it is one of the oldest fashion companies to exist (older than Old Navy, and H&M).

    And they seem to have a sense of humor. Look what the default page loads: http://www.louisvuittonjourneys.com/img/dummy.jpg

    I like that they use real high-achievers (the Gorbachev/Berlin wall ad particularly struck me as clever) instead of just good-looking airheads in their ads.

    Damn that picture is bad ass.

    For your information, Vuitton’s iconic design does not include any Fleur-de-Lys.
    That statement just makes you sound like an anti-french douchebag.

    And for the overrated thing, well it is a secular luxury brand, wich means they just don’t sell disposable crap, like samsoshit, they are the heirs of a tradition.

    You may not like Vuitton’s design, but their product are far better in quality than any other luggage you can buy.

    FanTAStic picture.

    LV still overpriced, sigil-loaded crap. What a racket, getting people to pay megabucks to carry around your ad.
    Disappointed in Ride, Lovell and Aldrin for buying in.

    This is my favourite LV ad campaign from the Core Values series yet. As for some of the negative comments so far. It is such a cliche to put down fashion brands and make anti-fashion comments. At the end of the day we are all consumers and attracted to brands we identity with, whether it be LV or wallmart. A brand is a brand. They all just target different segments of society. I don’t think LV is overpriced at all. You get what you pay for, and if you brush off the price thinking all you are paying for is a name, then it shows you what little you understand about historic luxury brands whether it be LV or any of the other competing brands. I would suggest doing more research before making such comments if you want to be taken seriously.
