Below is a list of the most expensive handbags to date. Starting with the new Spring 2008 Louis Vuitton Urban Satchel (the only thing missing on this bag is a pack of condoms). With only 24 of these made, all already reserved and paid for! Considering the Olsen Twins are endorsing it, I would assume they were the first 2 on the list to own it.
The Hermes Birkin In Croc Porosus Lisse
Description: The crocodile skin isn’t the only one that makes the Hermes Birkin In Croc Porosus Lisse expensive. It’s the 9-carat diamonds (with 1.86 carats on the lock) that makes it worth almost $150,000. The bag is also made on special order only.
Louis Vuitton Urban Satchel
Description: Made of the world’s finest Italian leather, this one-of-a-kind luxury handbag is hand-crafted with carefully chosen “urban charms”. The proud owner of this exclusive handbag will be able to flaunt her impeccable style and lavish taste to a world that can only dream about owning such a rare and precious possession. Medium: an old purse found in the back of my closet, rubber cement, various bits of trash found on the sidewalks of San Francisco.
AND THE WINNER IS….
Ginza Tanaka Platinum and Diamond Handbag – Price: $1,800,000.00
Description: Designed by jewelry maker Ginza Tanaka at a press preview of the “New Year Lucky Bag”. The handbag is adorned with 2,182 diamonds calculating some 208 karats, including an eight karats pearl shaped diamond in its center. All In One Versatility: The diamond shoulder strap can be detached and worn as a necklace or a bracelet, while the 8-carat pear-shaped diamond centrepiece surrounded by a cluster of eighty-one smaller diamonds can be taken off and worn as a brooch.
