This airplane-shaped handbag costs more than an actual airplane

Designed by Louis Vuitton’s menswear artistic director, Virgil Abloh, as part of this year’s men’s collection, this airplane-shaped handbag recently went viral for allegedly costing more than a used, single-engine airplane.

Virgil Abloh’s collections have always divided critics and fashion fans, with the main critique being that he overloads his creations with a bunch of ideas and concepts, and his latest one is no different.

Unveiled in January, LV’s Fall/Winter 2021 men’s collection featured a variety of over-the-top ideas, including clothes inspired by famous architecture and popular landmarks. But what really caught people’s eye on the internet recently was an airplane-shaped handbag featuring Louis Vuitton’s iconic monogram, and a spicy price tag – $39,000.

Described as a “Keepall” bag, the unusual accessory looks like a miniature commercial airliner complete with wings tail and even four engines embossed with the signature Louis Vuitton logos.

Photos of Abloh’s airplane handbag have been circulating online for months, but only recently went viral on Twitter after one user compared its price to that of an actual airplane, clipping an online ad for a used Cessna single-engine airplane selling for just $32,300 on eBay.
