    The 38-year-old actor has been sharing pictures of his daughter since her birth, shedding his reputation as “Asia’s baddest boy” apparently in favor of a doting dad image.

    The chest, officially the “Louis Vuitton x Supreme Malle Courrier Trunk,” is part of a collaboration line Louis Vuitton and Supreme launched in June 2017. 

    According to Highsnobiety, it was regarded as “the most coveted and rarest item on the market” at the time of its launch.

    It reportedly retailed for a whopping $150,000 a few months later.

    The exterior made of Gaboon wood blends Louis Vuitton’s iconic monogram and Supreme’s red and white colors, including its logo. Meanwhile, the interior features a quilted cotton lining and multiple linen canvas trays.

    Natural cowhide handles, lozine leather trimmings and golden brass lock finishings complete the details of the exquisite trunk.

    Alaia’s photo has received thousands of likes and hundreds of comments since its posting, with many pointing out Chen’s noticeable wealth.
