Louis Vuitton ads banned in the UK - Have your say!
Two of Louis Vuitton's new ads have been banned in the UK for being misleading. Britain's Advertising Standards Agency (ASA) say the ads from the French fashion house are deceiving due to the context in which they depict their craftsmanship.
For instance, one of the ads shows a seamstress sewing together a handbag which is accompanied by the words, "The seamstress with linen thread" and creation by "infinite patience," when in reality Louis Vuitton's luxury goods are made by machine. The label has admitted that sewing machines are used in its production, but that the process was "not automated" in the 100 stages of making a bag.
