but then agaiin im not an LV fan now and i never was an LV fan...
I always knew they were superioric,conglomerate Nazis but never this....however,during those years nothing would surprise me. As horrendous as it may be.
I wouldn't make that much out of it...IG Farben, Volkswagen, Bavaria Motor Werken etc all majorly donated to the Nazis....
there's nothing like a scandal in fashion
like this will stop any woman carrying her bag.
BTW, IBM helped Nazis too.
I was about to mention IBM but faust beat me to the punch. Ok, everyone stop using your computers NOW.
I am not particulary fond of the idea of Nazi collboration (and that is an understatement). However It's probably not terribly awful or unheard of for a major western european company to make dealings with the most prominent goverment/military power on the contienent.
ive heard loads of similar "shocking" stories. nothing that would make me feel uneasy.
tnx Lena for sharing. . i was considering buying the book a few weeks back already
Oh wow my grammar and typos are awful.
amusing...since the vast majority of the women i know and have known...(mostly from Long Island) who carry LV and own several...are jewish...isn't it ironic...
its not that it will stop people from wearing LV but ..admit it guys,
this is not the best kind of publicity right?
the fact that a lot of companies helped the Nazis doesnt make
their 'collaborations' any hollier - i hope.
i've heard so many times about Chanel's Nazi relationships,
so at least now i can voice back the name Louis Vuitton
So many people were suckered into following the Nazi regime... you can't really condemn a company for decisions made 50 years ago by entirely different management. Now, if they incorporate swasticas into their monogram for Spring/Summer '05, then I'll have something to say.
i actually think the swastika is a gorgeous symbol...too bad it was appropriated by hate mongering psychos...now we all have to avoid it...
the confederate flag in the US is similar...it's really beautiful...but it's now associated with slavery and the KKK....so nobody wants to be associated with it...such a shame...
And don't forget the Hitler moustache..
But that's a fashion no-no anyways
I think this is all in the past. There isn't evidence of them being pro-neo-Nazis now, so I think they should be forgiven for past mistakes. Just like all the messengers and anyone else who was involved with the Nazis. Hitler was very powerful and influential and as awful as his ideas were, I can't blame people for following him. His charisma was unmatched.
This all is very interesting though.
Not really a huge scandal.
Dr Porche was a Nazi, you may as well burn your 911 Carrera right now
Coco Chanel was a Nazi collaborator as well...
Musing over all the "innocent" emoticons I'm currently seeing...
