Louis Vuitton is notorious for never ever having discounted merchandise, but in order to sustain market value, they even go as far as to burn the leftover inventory. Yes, they actually incinerate Speedy an Alma bags. Can you believe that? And they aren’t the only ones! Chanel apparently lights a match to their stuff at the end of the season as well to prevent fakes being made. It’s insane. I get the whole exclusivity thing, but seriously? Think about how much good these brands would do if they just donated the excess to charity or discounted it for the rest of the public. Commodities such as the fine leather on LV bags are all going to waste. Such a shame, don’t you think, Mieux dolls?
