Strange enough, but it seems that the Louis Vuitton craze has hit leading Japanese kawaii companies like Sanrio and San-X too. They have both released character merchandise that looks like a parody of the world’s most copied fashion brand. See for yourself:
San-X has designed a new Rilakkuma line of accessories reminiscent of Louis Vuitton Monogram Multicolore (created by fellow Japanese artist Takashi Murakami).
Sanrio reminded everyone of Louis Vuitton Damier line releasing chequered Badtz-Maru handbags and diaries. The only difference is that the pattern on the items is black and not brown like that of LV.
Now, this is pretty weird, but I like their sense or humour. And what do you think?
