Not to be one-upped by the $34,000 backpack made by the twins who brought the world such gems as How The West Was Fun and Passport To Paris, the folks over at Alexander McQueen have just announced their newest creation: the $37,995 crocodile Heroine bag.
It’s sleek, it’s elegant, it’s….a handbag that costs more than $40K when you factor in sales tax (for New Yorkers, at least, and we dare you to track down one of these babies in Delaware). It’s also sure to incite some hatred from PETA, if their reaction to that fur backpack from The Row is any indication (Trollsen Twins, anyone?)
For the determined bargain shopper, however, there are also versions of the bag in python ($7,360), calfskin ($2,595), and suede ($2,495). But hey, if you’re gonna take the plunge, we say go big or go home! Take out that extra mortgage, sell your car, and carry your glorious new Heroine bag with pride.
