Well, this is insane. This week Bang & Olufsen revealed their new Speaker Bag, designed in collaboration with fashion house Balenciaga. The portable speaker, "Crafted to resemble the iconic sculptural form of Balenciaga's handbags," is freaking milled from a single block of aluminum.
"Each piece is milled from a single block of solid aluminum, before being pearl- blasted, anodized and hand-polished at Bang & Olufsen's Factory 5 in Struer, Denmark over a period of several days to create the perfect satin finish. A door at the rear of the speaker opens to reveal a storage compartment wrapped by hand in Balenciaga's Italian lambskin leather."
Attendant image photos reveal the target market:
"I'm here to pick up the ransom money for Daft Punk."
The limited edition Speaker Bag will only be available at some (not all) Balenciaga boutiques. Unsurprisingly, no price is listed.
