French fashion house Louis Vuitton, best known for its luxury leather goods, is entering the market of old-school games.
The latest release of Louis Vuitton’s designer Jenga set is a little different from the regular timber wood-balancing-block game.
This designer Jenga set features 54 luxury LV monogrammed plexiglass blocks, rumored to retail at around US$2,400. The classic Hasbro Jenga set costs around $20.

There’s no word yet on a release date, though some have already predicted that the LV Jenga set will likely sell out in today’s fashion landscape of limited editions and exclusive releases, despite its excessive price tag.
As reported by NY Post, the game comes after the much-anticipated second menswear collection from much-hyped creative director Virgil Abloh, which attracted an impressive front-row lineup – Timothee Chalamet, Naomi Campbell, Offset and Frank Ocean – to view Michael Jackson-inspired crystal-beaded jackets and a set reimagined from the NYV sidewalk from the “Billie Jean” video on Jan. 17 in Paris.
