Season after season they shock and amaze us with boundary-pushing garments, causing us to question our definition of chic and the purpose of having a savings account. Some of our most lusted after designers forgo the boundaries of a typical fashion house all together, dipping their stylish hands into the most mundane markets and producing something we’ll probably keep in the packaging and stare at for the rest of forever. From plush dolls to adhesive bandages to water spouts, here’s our six favorite unexpected designer spin-off items.
Muscle Man Marc Doll; $125, marcjacbos.com
Because who hasn’t dreamt of snuggling up with Marc?
Cynthia Rowley Band Aid Brand Beach Sport Kit; $12, cynthiarowley.com
