Even the most glamorous life comes with an unseemly amount of time spent sitting—whether it’s dealing with emails, taking meetings, or just bragging on social media about your glamorous life. The $1,300 Technogym Ball for Dior adds a dash of label envy to these mundane tasks. It’s part of a limited-edition collaboration between the Italian fitness company and the Parisian fashion house: A plush, antibacterial-treated white mesh cover is embroidered across its middle with the midnight blue Christian Dior Paris signature and Technogym’s star emblem on top.
