While this may not be 'breaking news' I ran into an interesting article combining my two interests; fashion and politics.
Cha ching, right?
Last summer former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev was named as the new face of Louis Vuitton.
The scene: Gorbachev is being driven by the remains of the Berlin Wall. Inside his Louis Vuitton luggage is a piece of literature sticking out.
"It's a Russian book or magazine, strategically posed so that the title is upside-down but readable: “Litvinenko's Murder — They Wanted to Give Up a Suspect for $7,000.” Litvinenko, of course, is the Russian ex-spy whose death — by polonium-laced sushi — has been widely attributed to Putin's goons," Michael Idov of the New Yorker said.
Louis Vuitton explains the ad as reflecting their "core values," on travel.
What do you think?
