Louis Vuitton Removed From Red Sq.

Too much capitalism for Red Square? Russian authorities ordered a giant, 30-foot-tall and 112-foot-long Louis Vuitton suitcase removed from Red Square outside the Kremlin, saying "the installation of this pavilion was not agreed with the administration." The luxury brand says the installation, made to commemorate the store's 120th birthday, is modeled after a trunk made long ago for Prince Wladimir Orloff and features Russian flags. It was supposed to house a charity event to benefit children.
