Louis Vuitton Condoms

 

 

You’ve heard of top-notch bedding and lingerie brands, but is there room in bed for another designer?

One artist seems to think so.

Georgia Republic architect Irakli Kiziria has designed a Louis Vuitton condom, enveloped in the label’s notorious brown packaging and adorned with what looks like raised lettering (for enhanced pleasure, we can only assume). The luxury rubbers are priced at $68 each, according to the “official” website. (Scroll below for photos.)

To put the price in perspective, $68 could buy you about six 12-packs of regular condoms.

But before you head to your nearest Louis Vuitton retailer, you should know the condoms aren’t available in stores. (Bummer, right?)

In fact, Kiziria has no affiliation with the Louis Vuitton company and drafted the condoms in collaboration with Design Provocation as a design-project, according to the website. The team hoped to launch the product on World AIDS Day and donate the proceeds to amfAR, The Foundation For AIDS Research.
