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, 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.

The fashion house that brought you the Karlito, a $1,750 fur keychain replica of Karl Lagerfeld, isn't going to churn out run-of-the-mill briefcases.

This backpack has a face too, but it's more Matisse than emoji.

Fendi debuted the bags against the perfect summer backdrop — an indoor pool with branded Fendi diving board, of course. Now having that wouldn't make us grumpy at all...
