More on Louis Vuitton


LV promo shot. Photo source

Came across an article on Louis Vuitton Mongolia here. The article includes a set of promo photos with herders and LV bags. Interesting and exotic to those who know nothing about Mongolia perhaps. Absolutely ridiculous to us who live here. Why the kid (meaning the baby goat)? Herders with LV bags that are probably more expensive than their entire herd? If this is an attempt at photographic surrealism and a social commentary on the absurdity of consumerism, it does its job very well. But I doubt that is the case here.

Visit the article source for more fun photos.
