The twinsies are capitalizing on one of their most ridiculously priced, and entirely sold out, bag, by re-releasing a special edition of the $39,000 bag for nearly $20,000 more with a few special prescribed twists.
The bags, created by artist Damien Hirst, are covered in prescription pills and made from black patent leather Nile crocodile skin. The use of pills in the design is derived from his 2000 art exhibition “The Void.”
Yes, you heard that right, they are covered in plastic prescription pills…and they retail for $55,000.
But it’s not like the bag has any super powers, the high price is of course because the bag is extremely limited with only 12 of each being be made.
The one light at the end of the price-for-purses-is-too-damn-high tunnel is that an unspecified amount of proceeds will be donated to UNICEF.
