You don’t need us to tell you that when it comes to designer goods, Jinkee Pacquiao has it all. From the latest perfumes, the most coveted bags and shoes, to the most expensive timepieces, name it and she probably owns a piece. But just when we thought we'd seen it all, she posted a photo on Instagram of another designer piece, and we had to blink twice just to make sure we weren’t hallucinating. The photo showed two “his and hers” bicycles with the unmistakable designer logos of Hermes and Louis Vuitton, and yes, apparently, those things exist.
The post was initially captioned with "His and Hers," but has been recently updated, sharing that these two bikes were, in fact, gifts from a friend.
Jinkee has a penchant for dainty things, so we weren’t surprised to see that her Hermes bicycle comes in a cute salmon pink color. The entire bike is splashed with the French brand’s logo, from the frame to the bag racks, and there’s even a filigree motif by the pedals. Based on a report by The Daily Mail last 2013, Hermes’ first collection of handmade bicycles were very lightweight and boasted of calf leather saddles. Each bike fetched $10,750, so Jinkee’s probably costs around that amount or more.
There is no official information on the Louis Vuitton bicycle covered in the brand’s iconic monogram. However, back in 2016, the LVMH group bought a majority stake in the Italian bicycle company, Pinarello, known for its high-end road bikes. According to the sports retailer Sigma Sports, Pinarello was established in 1953 and has been producing cutting-edge bike frames ever since. Based on Sigma Sports’ catalog, the price of Pinarello bikes can range from EUR 3000 (approximately P167,907) to EUR 11,000 (approximately P615,659). So, it's safe to guess that the Pacquiao family’s Louis Vuitton bike falls within that range (or even more).
