Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Imagine this: The head design team at Louis Vuitton sitting in their centrally-located Parisian office, playing a game of Will People Still Buy This? That's the only way that the Louis Vuitton monogram has found its way to a punching bag with the help of Karl Lagerfeld. Incidentally, this exact model is what like 12 episodes of MTV Cribs were missing all along.

But if you thought your boutique fitness studio workout was expensive, think again. This punching bag is being sold for an undisclosed price that would probably make your retinas burn. For something more practical, Karl designed a smaller version that can actually be used as a bag when you aren't busy throwing your body weight into it.
