Random Photo: From Knockoff LV Bag to High Art

What happens to knockoff designer bags? Sometimes they get adopted and taken into a nice home. Sometimes the person who made or sold them is arrested and sued by a fashion behemoth. And now there’s another option: Japanese artist Mitsuhiro Okamoto has created sculptures out of the fabric from knockoff bags, including some LVs. I’d suggest you head to Kobe, Japan to go see the sculptures, but – of course – Louis Vuitton had the ones with their logos yanked from the show. Luckily, there’s photo evidence, and the rest of the exhibit has gone on without any other interruption.

Dear Louis Vuitton, get a sense of humor.
