Earlier today I cam across this , from luxury French travel goods brand Moynat…

Malle+Bicyclette+by+Monyat

The Malle comes with luxury upholstered picnic trunk,complete (and resplendent) with porcelain goblets, china plates and silverware .

The cost?

approx. 33,650.00 pounds sterling!

Is there actually a need for this?
