What is up with... designers taking the piss

There are many, many ways in which we justify designer purchases to ourselves: it's beautifully made, it's an investment purchase, it'll last for years, it'll be a family heirloom one day, etc. And maybe some designer items are worth the the big prices, an Armani suit or a pair of Jimmy Choos for instance.

But can someone explain to me WTF is going on with this Vuitton item?

Yes, ladies, this is the LV laundry bag, a snip at £800. Remind you of anything? Yes, that's right, a cheap nylon shopping bag. The kind my mum uses to bring the groceries home from the market. That? Is taking the piss.

If there is anyone out there who would like to justify the ridiculous price tag on this item, may I first suggest that you buy one down the market for a fiver or less, paint your own interpretation of a Louis Vuitton Logo on it and presto, you've just saved yourself all of £795. Now take that money and buy yourself a clue.

This, folks, is how madness starts. Please stop it.
