Oh no! One of the Speedy bags fell off its animatronic display in the Louis Vuitton window on 57th Street. The poor 2008 Monogram Aquarelle tumbled from the spinning disk it had been stuck to with—what is that stuff? Putty? Gum? Anyway, it just looked so sad and pitiful lying there like that, especially since the gold disk just kept spinning away without it. Frankly, we laughed. Can you feel schadenfreude for a bag?
