Walmart sells...Louis Vuitton?

You're casually scrolling through Walmart.com, checking off your list: 

- batteries

- soda

- garden hose

- Louis Vuitton Damier Speedy 40?!?!

Yes that’s right. Walmart now has a section of their website for selling high end designers including Celine, Gucci, LV and more. They use a third party seller but are selling these items authentic, brand new, and in bulk.

I really can’t wrap my head around this. Gucci is killing it right now – why would they need Walmart? What will this do for their reputation?

A key thing to remember here is that this was never hugely publicized. It just kinda…happened. This whole situation makes me slightly uncomfortable. The place I shamefully go at 11 p.m. in my pajamas for a roll of cookie dough is not where I want to be buying my luxury goods. I feel that lines have been crossed here and they must be undone – for the sake of fashion!
