Would You Buy Louis Vuitton Condoms?

by Britni Danielle

 

I’m all for designer shoes, bags, and clothes…but condoms?

In honor of this year’s World Aids Day, Irakli Kiziria, an architect from Georgia Republic, designed a high-end Louis Vuitton condom (without the company’s permission), and amazingly, he hasn’t been sued yet. Wrapped in the luxury brand’s signature brown covering and embossed with the iconic “LV” logo, the couture condoms are priced at $68 each. EACH!

According to the official website, Kiziria “proposed a launch for the product on World Aids Day, as part of the Louis Vuitton’s work with amfAr (The foundation for AIDS Research),” but it’s not clear whether or not they’re actually available for sale just yet. Although it’s been causing quite a buzz on the internet, I’m not sure people will actually pay $68 for one condom, just to toss it out after it’s used.

Considering that the same $68 price tag can buy you a few boxes of Trojans, this seems very excessive. But who knows. If Kanye starts calling himself the “Louis Vuitton Condom Don,” Kiziria might just have a hit.

Would you pay $68 for a Louis Vuitton condom?

    Not unless I know beforehand the sex is going to be worth it. If not, that condom is getting rolled off of someone’s penis, right before they get smacked.

    huh.. next

    Definitely if all profits go to AIDS research.

    I can see it now, “Nigga, please. My condoms cost more than your whole outfit.”

  • Naffy

    Kanye would be first in line.

    Gives new meaning to “label whore.” But, nah, for real: 60 something dollars. It’s not that serious.

    Only if all profits in excess of the regular price (and profit) of the sale of the condom are being given to charities that fight to prevent the contraction of HIV and care for people living with Aids.

    This will sell and it will sell very well. Common LV? You know how many black people are label whores? The question is will they use it? I can see dudes now flashing this to anyone who will look. The cheap ones wont but the ones with money will.

    “I’m not sure people will actually pay $68 for one condom,”

    yes they will. people of all economics will, just to say that they have it. then they will hype themselves up about their purchase and insist that it is somehow the best. then they will be part of an elite condom club. isn’t that how it works anyway?

    besides, even if the money went to AIDS research, what doesn’t that even mean? they have enough “research” money already.

    What I want to know is how much money do people that buy Louis (anything) have in the bank, in their savings account, in their 40lK, etc.? Some people spend money on expensive stuff (to try to impress people) and don’t have jack in the bank. OK fools……keep making other people rich!

  • cherie
