Louis Vuitton is discontinuing its popular and heavily counterfeited Takashi Murakami-designed Multicolore monogram collection. An employee at Louis Vuitton's Saks Fifth Avenue store in New York told WWD that the collection will be "leaving stores at the end of July, forever."

The colourful bag became popular in the early-2000s, when Marc Jacobs was still the label's creative director. Although the Japanese pop artist also created the cherry blossom and camouflage capsule collections, the Multicolore monogram proved to be the longest surviving.

For those who are feeling nostalgic for the days when Paris Hilton and Jessica Simpson were the Kim Kardashians of the entertainment world, you still have a few more days to snag yourself a relic.
