Giant Louis Vuitton Trunk Removed From Red Square
LINDA WERTHEIMER, HOST:
And today's Last Word In Business is, a trunk that has Russians seeing red. A building-sized Louis Vuitton trunk was set up in Moscow's historic Red Square.
DAVID GREENE, HOST:
This big thing was meant to house a charity exhibition, featuring suitcases from the luxury fashion company. But reaction was not so charitable. Lawmakers condemned it as an obscenity in a sacred place.
WERTHEIMER: So yesterday, the government ordered the trunk be packed up and sent home.
And that's the business news on MORNING EDITION, from NPR News. I'm Linda Wertheimer.
GREENE: Only in Russia. And I'm David Greene.
