Pointless designer products

Yes, we are in a recession. So when I saw this Hermès apple-holder I couldn’t help but wonder is this really necessary? I mean what’s the point to hold an apple in the first place anyway? So I had a browse on the internet and came across quite a few random designer labeled products. At a time when designer houses are cutting off employees and putting off shows, aren’t they a little too extravagant and pointless?


This is a Baby Dior stuffed animal which is amazingly creepy and pretty frightening as it looks like something out of Coraline.



Another high fashion bunny, this time it is designed by Rick Owens and made out of mink. (Translation: it’s $700) Apparently it can be used as a clutch for keys, cash and compact.




The Lanvin coloured pencils box selling for 400 euros




Philip & Swarovski USB Flash Drives that cost around $2000 each.





From house of Chanel – the segway, boomerang and fishing kit.






Finally, the custom ipod case LV made for Karl Lagerfeld tops all. It is made completely of their famed black Taiga leather with initials KL embossed. It holds up to 20 ipods and takes up to 8 months to make. But I wonder if all these justify the $15,000.00 price tag.
