Louis Vuitton's €150k boxing gloves and 9 other ridiculous designer accessories
If you love to box and you've got a spare €148,000, then Louis Vuitton has the perfect accessory for you.
Their leather monogrammed gloves designed by Karl Lagerfeld might be out of the average person's price range, but at least they look good. They also featured in a fashion spread in the newest issue of Grazia, which got us thinking of the most ridiculous designer goods over the years.
Including these nine:
1. Ashish's sequin plastic shopping bag
The price: €340
Launch date: January 2014
Practicality: Actually, very.
2. Fendi's bicycle
The price: €5,500 - €10,000
Launch date: 2009
Practicality: 10/10 according to Vogue's June 2009 issue.
3. Hermes' horse saddle
The price: Prices start at €5,300 before customisation
Launch date: 1837
Practicality: If you're interested, you already have enough money to afford it.
4. Chanel's surfboards
The price: €3,500
Launch date: 2010
Practicality: 8/10 - It's pricey, but it's equal parts style and substance.
5. A Swarovski Mercedes
The price: €200,000
Launch date: Britain's 'most vulgar car' was auctioned on ebay last year for the above price.
Practicality: 10/10 if you want to be Paris Hilton.
6. Stefano Canturi's Barbie
The price: €320,000
Launch date: 2010
Practicality: 10/10 if you're a collector. 0/10 if you're a normal person.
7. Anya Hinmarch's crisp packet bag
The price: €75,000
Launch date: 2014
Practicality: 10/10. Solange wore hers to the Met Gala and the price may be too much, but you can't deny it's fit for purpose.
8. Christian Louboutin's ballet pointe shoe
The price: €50,000
Launch date: 2011
Practicality: 4/10. Ballerinas tried them on for modelling purposes (they were created for charity), but I can't see them plieing anytime soon.
9. Hermes' croc t-shirt
The price: €78,000
Launch date: Spring 2013
Practicality: 0/10. This price is sinful.
