    Chanel surfboards, Ferragamo hotels, Louis Vuitton skateboards... When it comes to products, luxury brands have proven time anad again that they're so much more than just the latest It bag. But still, an entire Prada pad? Color us molto intrigued.

    Last night, during its fall '13 menswear show in Milan, Prada unveiled the "Ideal House." Okay, so technically, you can't buy new digs from Prada.

Models, unfortunately, not included.
