Have you recently viewed the LV S/S 07 collections? Did you notice a bag that was red/white/blue with checks, and had a big circle LV stamp on it? In hongkong and china, these bags are known as "hong/bak/lam" which is "red, white, blue", and loads of old and distressed people carry them whilst travelling. They're made of plastic and are usually used for travelling. Anyways, how much do you think this bag costs making in the first place? 2pounds? 1pound??? It irks me to know that LV would come up with such a hideously horrendous bag, and sell it for hundreds of quid! Don't fall into the trap and buy THAT bag!!
