Trust Reed Krakoff, the designer with the mostest—or, at least, one of the most spectacularly decorated apartments in New York—has never met a luxury niche he didn't like. Okay, we're making that up, but seriously, folks, the designer's newest handbag offering goes somewhere we'd never thought that luxury would go—at least, not with such variety and gusto.

Say hello to Reed Krakoff's spring 2011 Gym Bag. Yes, a bag for toting your sweaty exercise things to the gym. This is the bag you will stash/smash in your gym locker and cram you perspiration-soaked T-shirts and sweatsocks in after a long hard session on the elliptical, the treadmill, or with a trainer called Sven.

Krakoff's gym bag comes in two size variants in red, grey, blue, natural, and silver. The Gym Bag I—10.2" tall, 12.6" wide, 6.7" deep—retails for $790 in leather and $2,790 in python. The Gym Bag II—14.2" tall, 17.8" wide, 7.9" deep—is priced at $1,390 in leather and $4,500 in python.
