Move over Rich Mnisi, Louis Vuitton is selling the ‘world’s ugliest sweater’ for nearly R120k
“Take it or leave it” international edition
Just when you thought R60k for a xibelani skirt was a lot? Louis Vuitton was like, hold my fabric!
Weeks after SA designer Rich Mnisi caused chaos on the SA TLs for his pricey xibelani skirt, Louis V continues to spark the same conversation internationally for “the world's ugliest jersey”.
The knitted jumper is filled to the brim with puppets and crocheted toys — 14 in total.
It described the piece as showcasing “the playful puppets that are a major theme this season” and revealed that it is “exclusively made-to-order”.
But if the design didn't trip you up, the price tag might.
According to the Mirror UK, the jersey goes for a cool £5,800 (R117,750)
Unimpressed social media users flooded the net with messages and memes mocking the jersey and claiming the brand was the ultimate “take it or leave it”.

Don't u think you've gone a little way too overboard on the knitting to provide eccentric amusement to your clientele on this design?! 😱 8k really?!
