Wanna class up your bathroom with a one-of-a-kind Louis Vuitton toilet? Yep, that’s a real thing.

Maybe you’re just looking for some cute new underwear.
You’ll find all these things and more in our list of this week’s must-haves.
Louis Vuitton toilet by Tradesy x Illma Gore
Would You Sit On a $100,000 #LouisVuittonToilet? The artist @IllmaGore (the person responsible for the #nudeDonaldTrump portrait) worked for 3 months to make the fully functioning potty. The artwork is currently on display at the @Tradesy showroom in Santa Monica, CA #IllmaGore #art @highsnobiety #LV #louisvuitton #feministperformanceart #politicalart #tradesy #LVtoilet
If you’re a Louis Vuitton collector, we’ve found your new holy grail. The Loo-uis Vuitton toilet is the only one in the world, the latest creation of artist Illma Gore. Gore is famous for her Trump micropenis drawing and now she’s bringing her unique sense of style to this fully functional gold toilet.
Gore worked for three months and used 24 different bags — with a total value of $15,000! — for the project. According to Tradesy, the material also included a $3,000 LV suitcase as part of the fabric. If you’re shopping late at night and decide to buy this custom-built toilet, be warned that all sales are final. Make sure you’ll still want it in the cold light of morning. $100,000 from Tradesy.com
Leica M240 camera by Leica
Ask any photographer and they’ll tell you Leica is the band they trust most. And no wonder, with its iconic, forward-thinking German engineering and precision-crafted lenses.
Leica’s new M240 camera combines a retro aesthetic with modern technology. The camera shoots 35mm film and digital pics, integrating a 24-megapixel CMOS sensor. Not only that, but thanks to its exclusive Maestro processor, you can shoot even faster.
The M240 also boasts three different focusing methods to ensure sharpness and comes with a high-res, three-inch, 920,000-pixel display so you can see what you shoot. $11,950 from mr.porter.com

The new KICKR model now supports 12×142 and 12×148 bikes through axle spacing. It’s really easy to fit all your bikes onto the KICKR — just take the rear wheel off your bike and connect it to the machine. The KICKR provides accurate power measurement and controlled resistance to match your skill level. $1,200 from wahoofitness.com
The NYC Taxi Drivers 2018 Calendar
The calendar is a comedic take on the traditional pinup and features 11 sexy men (and one woman). Cabbies are the unofficial ambassadors of NYC, driving day and night to take New Yorkers and tourists alike wherever they need to go.
The calendar is also a fundraiser for the NYC Taxi Organization. Past calendars have raised over $60,000 for University Settlement, America’s oldest settlement house, in New York City’s Lower East Side. The program serves over 30,000 immigrants, working individuals and families every year with essential services like quality education, literacy programs and housing. Order your copy today and ogle some drivers for a good cause. $15 at nyctaxicalendar.com

The Does Size Matter Brief by ADDICTED
Who doesn’t love sexy underwear, especially when there’s a cheeky (pun intended) twist? ADDICTED, the Barcelona-based underwear company, has just released its new Does Size Matter briefs, digitally printed with cartoon penises.
The polyester blend fabric is seamless and molded, so the print won’t be stretched out or distorted, and these briefs come in three colors: black, blue and fuschia. $34 at addictdallas.com
