Users are posting their own vests online, using bags of chips and inflatable pillows.
Chinese social networks are experiencing another viral trend - this time the focus is on an unusual item from the fashion house Louis Vuitton. Part of the men's spring 2021 collection is a $3,400 inflatable vest in two colorways and adorned with the house's monograms.
The creation of Virgil Abloh immediately attracted the attention of users who decided that this was a great reason for a joke. Despite the fact that the vest was sold out by Chinese buyers, mainly local celebrities striving to conquer fashion heights, another part of the country's inhabitants decided to bring a little humor to what was happening, making fun of both fashion trends and their own rich people who blindly follow them. .
Unable to accept the fact that an ordinary plastic inflatable vest can be decorated with monograms and quite seriously sold for thousands of dollars, many people began to show miracles of ingenuity and create vests with their own hands from improvised materials, also manually adding monograms to them.
In just the first few days of February, users managed to post on various platforms, including TikTok, hundreds of short videos and photos showing a variety of hand-made vests. In the course are packages with chips, packaging film with pimples, inflatable pillows, children's swimming circles and much more.
And one user left this comment: "As someone who earns 1,500 yuan (about $ 230) a month, this vest made me reconsider my life goals."
