Louis Vuitton Releases Huge 'League of Legends' Fashion Collaboration
Louis Vuitton has taken its relationship with the video game community a step beyond just creating apparel for tournaments by releasing a "League of Legends" collection.
Spoiler alert: It's expensive.
But, you know, those e-sport tournament purses are pretty hefty, so a lot of players might be able to fork over $5,600 for a leather jacket.

Business Insider reported that its "League of Legends" capsule collection, called LVxLOL, dropped on Monday.
Riot Games, developer of "League of Legends," said its is the "first-ever collaboration between a global e-sport and a luxury fashion house."
Louis Vuitton launched a League of Legends collection that costs over $50,000 for the whole line.

It's the first, but given the ever-rising popularity of e-sports, and now a precedent set by one of the biggest names in the game, it certainly won't be the last.
The collection includes character T-shirts, jogging pants, sneakers, a full-body sweatsuit, a parka, cycling shorts, a "bracelet bag," a pocket square and more. You can see the whole collection at Business Insider. If nothing else, it's worth it to check out the prices. There's a key holder and charm for $515, and a mini backpack for $2,310.
For everyone who thought gaming wasn't "cool" or "fashionable," this collection says otherwise. Plenty of people said that about comic books, too, and look where we are today.
