American art collective MSCHF has revealed a microscopic Louis Vuitton handbag made from neon-green photopolymer resin.

The bag, which was created using 3D printing, is 658 micrometres high and 700 micrometres long.

Commenters had mixed opinions. One thought the design was "ironic" and a "perfect expression of the usefulness of overpriced luxury items", whilst another argued that the "toxicity of polymer resin should be the commentary".
