Handbag Heaven: The Row’s $39,000 Crocodile Handbag
Move over Hermes, there’s a new ridiculously priced “it” handbag that rappers will make false allegations about which they will buy for their girlfriends. Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s new handbag line, The Row, which launched last month, features a $39,000 crocodile backpack. I heard about this bag a few weeks ago when the line first launched but I it didn’t officially hit me that Mary Kate and Ashley were charging Hermes prices, until one of the Olsen twins was spotted out actually wearing it. I’m a little disturbed by this backpack and its price. The fashion world has expressed its issues with the twins charging this much money for any single item from a newly launched accessories brand but that’s not my issue…Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen can charge whatever they want as far as I’m concerned. My issue is with the fact that this finely treated crocodile skin was processed to take the form of a backpack. If I were to ever spend $39,000 on a handbag, Imma need it to be a clutch or a regular satchel so I can hold it in front of me, right where I can see it. I also need to be able to dress up in it. I’ll be damned if I get a specially treated crocodile handbag and I can’t wear it with an evening gown or a sexy party dress because its a backpack. That’s the equivalent of putting diamonds on the bottom of your shoes..
