The Internet has changed nearly everything we do in some way or another, and it's certainly had an effect on fashion brands, the markets they can reach and what they decide to produce as a result. Because its easier to find a niche customer, brands incur less risk and make more specialty pieces than ever, and that results in a ton of non-intuitive products that make their way onto the websites of your favorite retailers. We took a survey of what's available right now, and it includes everything from a vintage runway guitar to a very luxe teddy bear.
Etro Paisley Snowboard
$1,736 via LUISAVIAROMA
We're nearing the end of ski season, but pick this board up at a cool 30% off to impress your friends in Gstaad next year. As one does.
Dolce & Gabbana Immacolata Ceramic Doll
$2,875 via LUISAVIAROMA
As fashion shows have become marketing events, brands have found an audience for their weirdness. That's how you end up with $3k Dolce & Gabbana porcelain dolls which can be ordered with the same ease with which you'd buy your boyfriend some new undershirts on Amazon. The Internet is beautiful and terrifying.
Chanel Vintage Runway Guitar
$27,500 via farfetch.com
As far as fashion collectors' items go, this is a pretty solid pick. It was a runway piece for Spring 2009, a time before Instagram and Twitter made such novelties commercially viable to produce in the quantities that we see now. It's been acquired, in near-perfect condition, by venerable vintage store What Goes Around Comes Around, which sells its wares to shoppers worldwide via farfetch.com. If you've already bought all the Chanel bags one can imagine, maybe this is the next step toward total Chanel supremacy.
Alexander Wang Runway Leather Water Bottle Holder
$394 via farfetch.com
Please ignore, for the sake of this accessory, that leather and water should be kept apart and that a water bottle is heavy enough to pull down your pants, if clipped to a belt.
Mua Mua Anna Wintour Pencil Case
$100 via farfetch.com
I would pay quite a few American dollars to see the look on Anna Wintour's face if a new Vogue intern showed up in her office with this.
MCM Aviator Teddy Bear
$1,137 via farfetch.com
Airfare and plush bear plane sold separately.
Maison Martin Margiela Objects and Publications Stainless Steel Champagne Bucket
$445 via Net-a-Porter
Margiela home goods often have some sort of trick to them, but I've been staring at the pictures of this forever and I just can't figure out what it is. Maybe that you're paying $445 for a bucket?
Lanvin Miss Lanvin 40 Porcelain Figurine
$615 via Net-a-Porter
I'm imagining this figurine sitting atop a glamorous old woman's vanity, next to a very intricate filigree hand mirror set.
Karl Lagerfeld x Tokidoki Diamante Embellished Figurine
$190 via Net-a-Porter
If you ever found yourself wishing that Karl Lagerfeld could watch over your day-to-day activities, now's your chance to make that a reality.
Hermès Temps de Pluie Perfumed Origami Horses
$79 via Hermès
I have some questions:
3. What do they smell like, exactly?
4. Where do you put them?
