Serious question – would you wear Marjorie Harvey’s $39,000 Louis Vuitton Purse? This purse cost as much as a Tesla or any moderately luxurious car and on top of that it’s shaped like a plane.
Ms. Harvey gave us a glimpse of her new purse on the gram with a simple caption “LV” with plane and purse emojis”.
In her post, she shared that she was not expecting the purse, and said she had no idea what to do with it even though it was gorgeous.

, this is a monogram canvas bag, which features the essential parts of a plane like wings and wheels, is a statement-making piece. When the design was first revealed, fans of the brand were slightly confused and definitely unimpressed. Rightfully so considering you can buy a pre-owned plane for less than 39K.

The critics on Twitter were fierce, describing the purse as ugly, bulky, and out of place.
Gross opulence— and the purse is ugly. Out of place. Bulky and goes with not one outfit. Anyone who buys this purse has too much “play money” and looks foolish flying around a bag you can’t reasonably take on a plane with you. Just dumb. It’s not superfly.

Regardless of what Twitter has to say, we are almost positive there are folks out there who purchased the bag even if it was simply an investment.
Ms. Harvey was a good sport and showed her followers how she would rock it casually.
– The artist behind the bag said his inspiration behind key pieces in the Fall/Winter collection was “tourist vs. purists.”
“It’s my organizing principle for my point of view when I make things,” Abloh said in an interview with Vogue. “A tourist is someone who’s eager to learn, who wants to see the Eiffel Tower when they come to Paris. The purist is the person who knows everything about everything.”
This bag is a major flex. Hermès has their Birkin bags and now Louis Vuitton has private jets you rock as a purse.
So, would you rock it? Personally, I would put it somewhere in my house on display. What about you?
