French handbag manufacturer Goyard has made headlines recently for its book release. Why, you might ask? It's easy: the book costs $7,000. The book - which is dedicated to celebrating the 1920s as the golden age of luxury travel - is limited edition, with only 233 copies in print. Each bears a number to signify its rarity and comes in a customizable Goyard trunk (packaging well worth the price.).
Maison E. Goyard was established in 1853 by François Goyard strictly as a luggage manufacturer. In the early 1900s, Goyard opened up the line to include a department designated for dogs, cats and monkeys (designers' love for their pets goes way back, it seems). Roughly a century later, the company was purchased by the Signoles family and launched a line of brand-new colors.
Now, Goyard handbags start at a thousand dollars and only go up in price from there. Given celebrities' penchant for anything wildly out of a normal price range, it comes as no surprise that the bags has been spotted on the arms of dozens of stars, from Kanye West to Hilary Duff.
