Recently I found myself flush with cash (hi JD!), so I decided to splurge on the white Louis Vuitton Damier canvas print backpack that Kanye West is wearing in the photo. It goes against my nature to be wasteful, but I just had to have that backpack. Plus, my photographer Freddy O said I deserved it.
Yesterday, Fred went to the LV store at Lenox mall to see if they had the backpack in stock. He called me from the store once he got there and this is what he was told: The backpack is custom made for Knaye West who ordered every piece of LV luggage in that color.
The backpack is available to the public by custom order only. To place an order, you are required to pay half of the $15,000 cost up front. The backpack ships directly from Rome, Italy and takes 8 months to make.
$15,000??? Even if I had $15,000 I wouldn't spend it on a backpack! But hopefully Knaye will be in my neck of the woods soon wearing that backpack. I hear he doesn't travel with bodyguards...
