    Some people believe it was a late April Fools' joke, but it seems after all that Louis Vuitton wants to bring encouragement to people who can't travel during the pandemic - and is doing so in the most bizarre way.

    Louis Vuitton decided to baffle people around the world with its new insane product, selling a plane-themed purse. The luxurious bag, festooned in the special LV symbol, was presented in the Fall-Winter 2021 collection by American designer Virgil Abloh, at the beginning of this year.

    It is now available for $39,000, which stunned many LV fans, as for this sum you could buy a real plane - not a luxury jet perhaps, but a fully functional single-engine aircraft that can take you up in the sky.

    Given the price, it's hardly a surprise that netizens were moved to satire, posting hilarious comments, some of which even included their idea for a "brand-new design".
