About 4 years ago, Louis Vuitton announced its plans to discontinue the custom orders division of its luxury brand. This meant they would no longer accept custom orders for bags or clothing from celebrities or the public.
This news came at a time when Kanye West's custom $6,300 LV backpack was all the rage on the blogs.
I wanted a smaller version of that backpack, but a rep at the Louis Vuitton corporate office assured me that LV would "probably" resume accepting custom orders "in the future" (this was 3 years ago).
So imagine my surprise when I saw the pictures of Justin Bieber wearing what appeared to be a custom made Louis Vuitton jacket to the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas last week.
