The giant Louis Vuitton backpack priced $10,000 The ultimate accessory

It's a moment full of excitement for Louis Vuitton, between positive and non-positive news. A few days ago the Maison launched Les Colognes, the first unisex fragrances of the fashion house; shortly after, they announced that they will not produce any item from the FW19 menswear collection that contains elements with a direct reference to Michael Jackson. The decision comes after the fuss raised by Leaving Neverland, the documentary presented at Sundance Film Festival on the alleged sexual abuses of the pop star on a number of children. Jackson had been the main inspiration for the show that debuted in January during Paris Fashion Week, a proposal that combined Virgil Abloh's passion for streetwear with tailoring and tributes to the singer's style. After a series of press releases through which Abloh and the brand strongly condemned "all forms of child abuse, violence or violation of human rights" and judging the documentary's accusations as "profoundly worrying and disturbing", many wondered what would have been of the line for the next autumn-winter.

Fortunately, given the excellent work (from a fashion point of view) of the American designer, the elimination of some items will not affect a vast assortment of interesting garments and accessories. Among the ones that attracted our attention, even on the catwalk, there is a backpack so oversized that, hypothetically, could contain your dog, a large part of your wardrobe and maybe, if you are thin and flexible, you could use it even as a sleeping bag. Made of grey fleece (the model that sported it on the runway wore an outfit in the same colour and material), with a jacquard print of the iconic monogram LV full of pockets and straps that make its capacity even more expandable. The price? Only $ 10,000.

If the price is a bit too high, but you still want to have an accessory from the FW19 collection, you can opt for the cheaper Louis Vuitton Jenga set with red, blue and transparent rectangular blocks, all with the engraved LV monogram, which costs $ 2,000.
