The boss faking it again?


The homies at XXL got this letter (perhaps on lovely heavyweight manilla stationary, scented with the essence of Kanye’s feet and angel’s breath) from Louis Vuitton….regarding the sunglasses that Rick Ross wore on the cover of their May 2009 issue:

Dear Editor:

We were dismayed to see the cover of the May 2009 issue of XXL Magazine, which features a photo of Rick Ross wearing a pair of sunglasses prominently featuring counterfeit Louis Vuitton trademarks. Because the photo has generated considerable confusion among your readers and Louis Vuitton customers among others, we feel it is important to clarify several points.

The first is that the sunglasses Mr. Ross is wearing were not made by Louis Vuitton, and in fact, are counterfeit. Louis Vuitton did not grant permission to Mr. Ross or to whoever did make the sunglasses to use our trademarks. The second is that no affiliation, sponsorship or association exists between Rick Ross or XXL and Louis Vuitton. The third is that counterfeiting is illegal….(full letter after the jump)

Now at first, I just chalked up the foolery to maybe a photo shoot stylist who was trying to cut corners? But then my sharp-readers pointed out this video where Ross claims that those same sunglasses were “custom Lewis Vatonne shades, one of one….” at the 5:48 mark. (strong suggestion, skip the rest of the rant)


How come LV and Gucci haven’t written letters about the logo-covered velour jogging suits he’s always wearing?
