The $175,000 punching bag

Louis Vuitton has just added some serious pop to its signature luggage line. When the fashion house asked six celebrity collaborators to help celebrate its iconic brown-and-gold monogram print, "heavyweight designer" Karl Lagerfeld got feisty, said Brooke Bobb at The New York Times. His $175,000 Boxing Trunk is fitted with a punching bag and stand, while a separate case carries a matching mat and boxing gloves. Only 25 of the collector's pieces are being produced, but Lagerfeld also came up with a series of boxing-inspired handbags that start at $3,400 and feature the same cowhide leather trim and gold-brass hardware.
