This Louis Vuitton Bag: Trash Or Treasure? You Decide – 12/2/10

So what are your thoughts on Louis Vuitton's new ‘Raindrop Besace’ bag? (pictured).

We read in the Luxist that these bags, available in two colours, are crafted in leather, with gold-tone detailing and a detachable leather strap. And what’s the general consensus on this bag – it looks like a trash bag.

Critics have certainly been harsh about the Raindrop Besace. But you know what they say – another woman’s trash is another’s treasure!

Personally, we prefer the ultra-luxe Whisky Case that Louis Vuitton has available by special order. It was constructed entirely by hand and is a timeless piece. You can also see it at the Luxist.
