Designer Louis Vuitton died at age 70 in 1892, years before the eponymous fashion house achieved wide renown. But if that sedentary, escargot-slurping Frenchie had owned a set of high-end $2,720 dumbbells, Vuitton would have lived long enough to see his progeny make the luxury brand a household name.
Louis Vuitton—the company, not the dead designer—will surely have to retool its factories to mass-produce the non-modular pair of four-figure, 6-kilogram weights. Why?

2. Coronavirus. As gyms and other frequented locations remain closed in an attempt to slow the disease’s spread, many are are turning to at-home workouts. With a clear concern for the availability of fitness gear, Louis Vuitton has admirably stepped up to serve the public’s needs.
