Fashion firm Louis Vuitton is flogging baby-grow for newborns for a whopping £900
FASHION firm Louis Vuitton is flogging a baby-grow for newborns for £900.
But most infants will have grown out of the French fashion house’s Meli-Melo Embroidered Suit in a matter of weeks.
The website says it is made from “a soft lightweight blend of cotton and cashmere” and is “embroidered with multi-coloured monogram flowers”.
It adds: “Refined details, including engraved mother-of-pearl buttons sewn on a grosgrain ribbon, complete this sweet playsuit, which is an ideal gift for a newborn.”
The Louis Vuitton website is also selling a teddy bear for £875, a baby’s first suitcase for £1,890, a blanket for £1,180 — while a set of three pairs of socks can be snapped up for £350.
It also has a newborn’s coat for £1,090 and a cardigan for £425.
Introducing its first range for babies, the website gushes: “Soft and elegant, this timeless offering accompanies babies during their earliest days.
Featuring the Meli-Melo motif, the Maison’s iconic signatures are reinterpreted with childlike whimsy.”

Saffron Walden Rugby Club in Essex hit on the fundraising idea after our story about a Balenciaga range.
It said: “Ours are authentically ravaged.”
