Daylight Robbery? Lanvin’s $1,500 canvas tote bag

Lanvin are at it again, readers.

Sure, this is pretty. But it’s a canvas tote bag. And it’s almost $1,500.

Oh yeah, and the highly visible “LANVIN” logo on the front? Means you’ll be efectively paying THEM for the priviledge of being a walking advertisement for them. Oh, and for being a fashion victim, of course, but that goes without saying.

(Click here if you want to be a human advertisement!)

    This looks like a DIY project from Grammar School that’s already falling apart. And I read “Manum”, so it’s not even a convincing advertisement.

    I just donated this bag, and many more silk flower projects by my late mother-in-law, to the Salvation Army! I could’ve made a fortune!!

    I agree with Moni that the name is not very legible. I could’ve copied the ‘logo’ and who could tell??

    This isn’t just Daylight Robbery, it’s a Crime of Fashion as well. I have nothing against a *small, tasteful, and neat* logo (like on the handle of a clutch), but that logo is illegible and looks like it’s made of electric tape, the flowers look sloppy, and it’s a FREAKING CANVAS TOTE BAG. Lock it up and never let it see the light of day. Ever. Again.

    This is tacky and garish.
