Yup. You heard that right. A freaking $68K foosball table only from Hermès. Never would I have imagine the Parisian fashion house to turn out “luxury” recreation equipment, let alone a foosball table. But here it is, the Hermès Foosball Table. It is real, it is outlandishly lavish, and it is probably one of the most luxurious, if not the most luxurious, foosball tablet there is today. Featuring a maple construction, wrapped in Swift calfskin, the Hermès Foosball Table is all about elegance and attention to details. Attention to details like satin metal hardware (knurled where appropriate), stitched leather handles, carefully color matched score posts, and highly detailed soccer players who are, in the spirit of the fashion label’s branding, actually jockeys.

In the fictional world of Scrooge McDuck, the filthy rich, elderly duck swims in a vault of gold coins, but here in the real world, humans who are equally ridiculously rich have to content with immersing themselves in luxury with the Alvarae La Baignoir Carbon Luxury Bathtub cos’ swimming in a vault of gold coins is not humanly possible, but why is this thing luxury, you ask? Because, this striking bathtub cost a freaking $37,900! That’s why. Continue reading You Don’t Need To Swim In Gold Coins To Show You Are Rich, Just Dip Inside This $38K Bathtub Will Do
Yes. What you see here is really a Louis Vuitton toilet, but sadly, it is not an officially sanctioned product. I secretly wish it was. It was born out of a collaboration between online luxury goods marketplace Tradesy and Illma Gore, the prolific artist most famously remembered for nude portraits of the current POTUS, AKA the Tweeter President, AKA Donald Trump. I am not going to lie; I am quite impressed, especially when underneath that LV skin is a gold toilet (not real gold, I believe). Then again, I don’t know is it a brutal stab at the Parisian fashion label or a compliment. Continue reading Oh, Look. There’s A Louis Vuitton Toilet You Can Actually Buy!
Shared bikes are huge in China and thanks to the booming economy, so are tuhao, AKA local tycoon. Therefore, it is about darn time that someone give shared bikes some opulent treatment worthy of tuhao who are, well, still fond of shared bikes. Ok. Maybe that does not make any sense, but hey, you never know, right? True enough, a startup called Cool Qi Bike, aided by Chinese electronics juggernaut Haier, has rolled out shared bikes coated in shiny gold paint job, aptly referred to as “tuhao gold.” These luxurious-looking shared bikes are reportedly available in five cities: Beijing, Shanghai, Hangzhou, Shenzhen, and Xi’an, for obvious reasons. Continue reading Shared Bikes In China Now Comes In Gold, But Do Tuhao Needs Them At All?
If you have a collection of Hermès scarves that are already looking ‘old’? Well, don’t cast them away, because Hermès now offers luxury laundromat services, called Hermès Pop-up Service, that promised to rejuvenate those ‘old’ scarves, making them look as good as new. And mind you, these aren’t ordinary washers. Each washer features a “three expert colour-reviving wash cycles” (denim blue, bright red or fuchsia) which, after 48 hours of the HermèsMatic dip-dye treatment, your freshly rejuvenated scarves will be presented to you folded and wrapped in brown paper package. The best part about this service is, it is free. I know, it is hard to believe, but it is indeed free and part of the Parisian fashion label’s effort for sustainable fashion. Continue reading Hermès Laundromat Promised To Rejuvenate Your Old Hermès Scarves
I have a lot to say about “world records” today, triggered by a so-called “most expensive hamburger in the world” we came across a couple of days ago. As you know, this being the Internet, information sometime can be rather misleading and confusing, and the record purportedly awarded by Guinness World Records to South of Houston, a bar kitchen in The Hague, The Netherlands, is one such confusing case. We read that this gastronomical delight whipped by Chef Diego Buik of South of Houston has snagged the Guinness World Records for most expensive hamburger with a gold-foiled covered top bun burger that cost $2,300 (some ’sources’ even said it was $3,600 and so…), but based on Time’s “8 of the Most Expensive Burgers Ever,” the priciest burger was FleurBurger at Fleur in Las Vegas which commanded a whopping $5,000 (!). Continue reading Is This $2,300 Dutch Burger Really The World’s Most Expensive?
When rich person talks about sustainability, we bet they hardly think to start from their home. However, if you beg to differ or decide it is time to start to start with a sustainable home (beside NOT jet setting with your private jet…), then the Casa Vista Paraiso Sustainable Home maybe right up your alley, well, that’s you are prepared to move your ass to Costa Rica, where this beautiful property awaits. Built by Catalfumo Construction, this sprawling 8,950 square foot private luxury estate sits in a forest sanctuary overlooking the golf course greens within the Los Sueños Resort and boasts 5 bedrooms, 6.5 baths, a state-of-the-art chef’s kitchen, intricately cut tile, Costa Rican hardwood, and granite – lots of it. But how is it ‘sustainable’? Well, here’s the gist: Continue reading Casa Vista Paraiso: A ‘Sustainable’ Luxury Living In Costa Rica
We are accustomed to skyrocketing property prices, but one that commands $250 million is plain ridiculous, but besides being a chart topper on the most expensive property in stateside, it does come with its perks and when look at those perks, you probably will think it is money well spent, especially if you are petrolhead. For $250 million, this Bel-Air property comes with seven staff members, a helicopter landing pad complete with a helicopter (!) and a car collection with no less than 12 exotic luxury four-wheelers, including the likes of Rolls-Royce Dawn, Ferrari 488, Pagani Huayra, 1936 Mercedes-Benz 540K, Spyker C8, Ariel Atom 3, Bentley Continental GT convertible and Bugatti Veyron, and 10 motorcycles. Also included is a Brooklands Edition 3-wheeler too! Continue reading The Most Expensive Property In The U.S. Comes With A Helicopter
So, you don’t have the money to fly in gold, or rose gold for that matter? Well, fret not. We have good news for you. You do not need to be obscenely rich to fly in gold cos’ with the DJI Phantom 4 Gold Edition offered by UK-based drone seller, DronesDirect, you can fly gold too, though granted, not so much as flying in gold. That’s kind of the ’discount’ you’d expect when you are paying a fraction of the price of a rose gold-treated Cobalt Valkyrie-X. Apparently, an one-off item and presumably created not by DJI but by DJI partner, DronesDirect, this particular imaging drone sets itself apart from the ‘lesser’ DJI Phantom 4 with a pretty stunning 24-carat gold plating on its body which also saw the landing gear getting the gold treatment. Continue reading For £20K, You Can Fly Gold With the DJI Phantom 4 Gold Edition
These days, anything that your hands can hold can comes in luxurious rose gold treatment. Wrist watches, smartphones, tablets – you name it – can all be coated with that shiny, opulent coating. This luxury coating can also be found on some cars and even yachts, which makes you wonder why not a private plane? Well, if you have been thinking about that, then Neiman Marcus must have read your thought cos’ it is offering a Cobalt Valkyrie-X private plane coated in, you guessed it, rose gold, as part of this year’s Fantasy Gifts collection.
