Louis Vuitton has made a bag that costs more than an airplane.
The luxury luggage brand is known for its bank-breaking designs.
But this is one of the most outrageous bags it’s ever released.
Not only is this plane-shaped purse pretty impractical, but it costs more than an actual plane.
This bag was designed by the late Virgil Abloh.
He also had an interest in travel, having customized Drake’s Boeing 747 private jet.
Having had a go at a private jet, Abloh felt inspired to create a plane that was more of a carry-on size.
For the Louis Vuitton Fall 21/22 campaign, models stormed the runway holding bags shaped like planes.
The bags were made in the brand’s trademark brown leather with its iconic monogram motif.
Details were added in black leather, including embossed engines, a cockpit windscreen, and a luggage tag on the strap.
But that’s where the similarities to an aircraft end, as the most this ‘plane’ could transport would be a phone.
This gives new meaning to the phrase ‘baggage restrictions’.
Just one of these cost $39,000 at the time.
Because of its limited nature and Abloh’s passing, this piece has become a collector’s item, with one recently selling for $60,000.
To put it into perspective most Louis Vuitton bags cost between $1,000 and $6,000.
What makes this bag’s price tag especially shocking is the fact that you can buy a functioning airplane for the same amount of money.
A second-hand Cessna single-pilot plane costs $36,000.
Or you could pick up a slightly more expensive plane for $41,000.
Whichever you choose, you could buy one instead of the plane bag and still have change to spare.
