This is just tacky.
Machine Guns Vegas recently sent out a press release for their 'Louis Vuitton' grip handgun, but instead of it being a fashion forward pistol, it's just tasteless and disrespectful.
MGV's press release stated:
"Like Marc Jacobs putting Sponge Bob Square Pants onto LV monogrammed bags, Machine Guns Vegas has created their own Louis Vuitton accessory – a monogrammed Louis Vuitton grip for a handgun – which is legal to carry in the State of Nevada."
That's like comparing apples to oranges. Some things just don't mix!
Apparently the gun company wants to cater to stylish revolver-shooting women. Managing Partner of MGV, Genghis Cohen explains:
"We have a real demand to cater to gun enthusiasts who also have a desire to look stylish, hence our foray into Louis Vuitton gun accessories."
And if you hadn't already assumed that the Luxury brand is in no way associated with MGV, then we're here to tell you that they're NOT even close to being affiliated.
Louis Vuitton revealed:
"Louis Vuitton is in no way associated with this company. We do not manufacture gun grips and do not condone the alteration of our creations in any way."
Hmmm, this sounds like a legal issue waiting to surface.
We're sure Machine Guns Vegas is going to get their head popped off by Louis Vuitton very soon, literally!
Just one more thing, where was this fashionable weapon when Lindsay Lohan posed with a gun to her head?
The pistol would've been perfect for a fashion shoot. Ha!
