Louis Vuitton condoms: The fashionable way to fake it in the bedroom

When Durex just won't cut it, Louis Vuitton condoms have arrived to satisfy your designer desires.
A tidal wave of excitement no doubt swept through the label-loving locales of Marbella, Miami and Essex last night when news that Louis Vuitton had launched a range of condoms went 'viral' on Twitter.
Parcelled in wrappers printed with Vuitton's iconic brown monogram, the condoms are embossed with the 'LV' logo and priced at eye-watering $68 each - small change to the average customer of the luxury French fashion house.
Sadly however, the ne plus ultra of the sex industry turned out to be yet another knock-off and not creative director Marc Jacobs' latest tongue-in-cheek must have accessory.
The brains behind the spoof is Georgia Republic architect Irakli Kiziria who collaborated with Design Provocation to create the condoms for World AIDS Day in December. However, after a picture of one appeared on Huffington Post yesterday, word spread fast and before long 'Louis Vuitton Condoms' was trending on social media site Twitter.
A spokesman for Louis Vuitton declined to comment on the designer condom-fever sweeping the globe, but it seems safe to say that should the demand for luxury handbags ever wane, they have a tidy potential plan B waiting in the wings.
