Let’s take LouisVuitton, for instance. Really crappy and unattractive bags, wallets, etc. Brown, chequered with LV initials all over the boring shape. Celebrities, rich peole, poor people – everyone goes crazy for LV. Today this shitty bag became some sort of a sign of prestige. I must’ve missed something: brown/ochre simple bags with stupid initials are a bigger craze than anything there ever was?
Also Dolce&Gabbana or D&G. Always tacky shit, like their leopard prints, bleached jeans and huge belts, shirts or jeans with same initials. Eastern Europe and Russia falls for this kitschy brand like teenage girls for boy bands.
Anyhow, I have this idea or a method, whatever you call it, ‘how to recognise a fashion world whore’. Easy – by the amount of fakes you can find on the street. And these days there is nothing else but Louis Vuitton, D&G, followed by DKNY and Calvin Klein 🙂
What I hate about this brand craze is the stupidity of people. YOU are neither special nor cool if u have all your suitcases, wallets and handbangs made by LV. It is not cool to walk around with torn bleached jeans and a belt with huge diamond initials D&G. Well, unless you are in your own little world where you present yourself as a famous russian pop grandpa that stays young with the help of botox injections.
People that buy clothes, shoes or accessories just because they are made by a famous designer, or some stupid, uneducated celebrity with no taste that was caught by papapazzi wearing that shit, make me real sad.
Style and good taste is not about money or brands, its about intellect, modesty, subtlety and good knowledge of aesthetics. Its about being able to criticize your own and even famous designer’s choices.

With the girls – it was love at first sight. I really liked their subtlety and blue tones
And I was crazy about the boy’s look. The tash and innocent simplicity killed me!
