Louis Vuitton’s Hatsune Miku Outrages Miku Fans

Miku fans have been outraged by fashion designer Marc Jacobs’ unflattering portrayal of Hatsune Miku in his new Louis Vuitton label costume for her, although they have so far refrained from threatening to bomb Louis Vuitton outlets.

Hatsune Miku’s new outfit, designed by Louis Vuitton for her appearance in a new opera, fittingly entitled “The End”:

The ensemble was designed by top American fashion designer Marc Jacobs, and “combines the 2013 spring and summer collection with her characteristic qualities in an original work.”

Amongst Miku’s dedicated and, it has to be said, exceedingly sensitive admirers, there is outrage that a mere fashion designer would dare to sully a virtual diva of Miku’s stature with his sordid craft:

“He doesn’t understand anything!”

“Even Louis Vuitton is trying to get in on the action now.”

“They must be desperate!”

“I’ll tear down these posters!”

“My eyes hurt.”

“The only thing to survive this travesty was her twintails.”

“If they are going to wreck her so badly what is the point of pretending it is still Miku?”

“There is no way the designer of some fashion brand for morons is going to be able to appeal to otaku with moe illustrations.”

“All the Mikutards are seriously upset about this…”

“Foreigners don’t get it.”

“What do you expect from some crazed homosexual fashion designer:”

“He just copied one of her old outfits from Project Diva in any case:”

“Look, it isn’t supposed to be a moe illustration of Miku – it’s an outfit designed for her to wear!”

“Don’t you people get the difference between a drawing of Miku’s outfit and a drawing of Miku?”

“I’d rather see Miku portrayed by some top mangaka.”

“Are we being made fun of? Why should Miku wear this?”

“Maybe it suits her if she actually wears it…”

    Mmmmm it doesnt give off the virtual diva vibe, much less in the spirit of Miku and vocaloid in general.

    Like one said, only the twintails vaguely hint at her.

    Sheesh, from a brand that's terminally anal about counterfeiting, they should seriously refrain from massacring a design this way.

    Nope, I haven't seen the opera yet, so couldn't say whether it fits the theme or not..

    I have a friend who's a fashion designer, their focus for drawing is just to make rough work for new clothes, not illustrative masterpieces.
    Very few even draw faces at all, my friend doesn't and why would they? They're not trying to design characters.

    Besides, someone drawing a bad picture of Miku is a weird thing to get your panties in a bunch over, there's thousands of shit pictures of her on deviantart.

    As for the outfits themselves I think they're pretty dull and unflattering(as with all Louis Vuitton stuff IMO), here's what they look like on real people anyway: http://www.thetimes.co.uk/tto/multimedia/archive/00342/VIDEO_Louis_Vuitton_342582a.jpg

    Wow... that whole scene is more depressing than fashionable.

    I was hoping for something like sexy underboob in a quirky pattern, instead we get half ass-ed fashion designer trying to brighten up Orwell's 1984...

    So it's fair to compare DA illustrations by tweens and young adults with Louis Vuitton? Sounds about right...all the other stuff is pretty much poorly designed anyway. The people actually wearing it don't look great in it either. I certainly wouldn't go anywhere near somebody wearing that.

    You didn't read the explanation about fashion designs roughs, right?

    This is not suposed to look like Miku, or to be a representation of Miku. They probably just drew a face because they had to work with the hair as well.

    Oh... I thought they were upset because the design of her costume was so dull, not because it was a bad drawing. Seriously...people get to design shit like that and get paid loads for it.

    Stupid-ass Miku hysterics....

    That real picture looks interesting, though. Almost looks inspired from Vento Aureo.

    What's important here is the acknowledgement baby..!! Icouldn't care less about the design. Miku has been acknowledged by LOUIS VUITTON!! I give Her the best Rejoice from the bottom of my Heart!! Just think about it... How many super popular Pop Singer in Japan have their onstage clothes designed by LOUIS VUITTON?? I bet they stare in jealousy now.. (^w^)

    Nope, can't agree with that Bro'. You can do that with 2nd Rate Fashion Brand, but for Prestigious 1st Class Brands like: LOUIS VUITTON, GUCCI, VERSACE, BURBERRY it can't work that way. They need to guard their Brand Image, so they wouldn't let a 2nd rate badass artist go wearing and promoting their Goods in Public Show(not to mention the goods is Exclusively designed for him/her)

    Nope They can't. LV will not design anything for a 2nd rate asshole artist, because it will ruin their Image as the Most Prestigious Brand, same with GCCI, VRSC, BRBRRY, ARMNI. You can only used money for 2nd rate fashion brands.

    Nope they can't. Coz LV need to preserve its Brand Image. They wouldn't promote their fashion & bags using some half-assed/bad-reputable artist, much less making an exclusive design for them to be used in a Public Show. If they agree to make a design for Hatsune Miku, means they acknowledge Miku as a Top Artist that can bring good name and reputation for their Brand Image.

    I know Louis Vuitton. It's just another name that pretentious pricks wave around to show how rich ($$$ wise) and "cultured" they are meanwhile it's all produced in the same Chinese sweatshops and sometimes even from the same materials as Wal-Mart's bargain crap.

    Which is better - A plain red Hanes cotton t-shirt for $10 or the exact same shirt with a Nike logo on it for $35? (Keeping in mind the Nike shirt cost an extra $.02 to produce for screen printing the logo.)

    Companies have to PAY to advertise in newspapers, magazines, TV, billboards, movies, etc. but if they put their logo on clothing, YOU are stupid enough to pay THEM for the privilege of being a walking advertisement.

    @10:17. PFFFTTTTTTT.....BWAHAHAHAHHAHAHHAHAHHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!! Just as I thought!! Your 1st Paragraph tells everything!! Mann..it's so hilarious I can't stop laughing!! Listen Boy... NONE OF LV's PRODUCT ARE MADE IN CHINESE!! Same material as Wal-mart bargain crap...? OMG... Proof enough that you haven't ever bought one before, much less comparing them with other "crap" products. Here's my advice cherry boy... bring one of your "crap" products, and go to LOUIS VUITTON Store in your Town. Just compare them.... touch the materials... feels it.. if you still don't get the difference, have their salesperson explains them for you.. kay?

    Dude looks like Iceberg from One Piece in that first picture..

    Also, it's a really bland and boring design in general, but I've never really given a fuck about high fashion, anyways. They like to pretend they've got the entire clothing industry by the balls, but they've got a very small, very restricted demographic.

    A prisoner to overpriced fashion. My mom bought a Louis Vuitton bag that was over 2000$ and that was from 15 years ago, I never understand why they pay so much for something average looking. It's like it's only the brand they are paying for.

    not all women buy louis vouiton and plenty of men buy louis voution as well as other overpriced shit. Your point is invalid but you can continue to scratch your balls and think of yourself as being more intelligent for having them if you wish, but keep in mind such posts make you look about 12.

    Women aren't stupid. They are just designed differently. If you've noticed most women from age 15 and up endlessly talk about boys, shopping and things of status.

    This is why no matter how much equality we have women still never do the big tasks like learning quantum science or building homes. Wome by nature limit themselves to tasks that will up their attraction to find a male mate.

    Uh...that's actually the point man... your Mom is indeed buying the BRAND. What's so expensive about LV is indeed their BRAND. Still don't get why LV so expensive? Study more about what are the requirements for a brand to be classed as "Prestigious Brand".
