Forbes Most Expensive Handbag List!
Here is the list of pricey arm candy
Fendi | B.Bag | $27,700
Hailing the return of the structured bag, this might be Fendi’s best seller since the Baguette. Although the white lambskin runway bag (pictured on the runway) was well-received, the $27,700 black crocodile version is truly coveted.
Hermes | Birkin | $20,000 +
Nearly all Hermes Birkin bags, named after English actress and ’60s fashion icon Jane Birkin, are special orders, like this red leather version. Most Birkins are upwards of $20,000, but the final price depends on skin and hardware.
Yves Saint Laurent | Muse | $18,990
Seen on the arm of everyone from Kate Moss to Jessica Simpson, the roomy yet refined Muse riffs on the traditional bowling bag. Linda Evangelista’s sage green version, pictured above at Paris Fashion Week last February, is now available in white crocodile for $18,990.
Prada | Frame Bag | $15,090
This structured crocodile bag, embossed with the signature Prada emblem, made its first appearance on the Autumn/Winter 2006 runway in Milan. It is available in the tan color shown above, known as Krusca.
Zac Posen | Alexia | $15,000
With his first line of bags, Posen has created the ultimate homage to the ’70s. This blue crocodile version oozes opulence.
Ralph Lauren | Ricky | $14,000
The latest of the exclusive bag set, Ralph Lauren’s is named for his wife and is available in silver crocodile. For the shocking orange version, you’ll have to travel to RL’s newly opened Japanese flagship.
Chloe | Paddington | $12,880
After experiencing a huge wave of popularity a couple of years back, the Paddington satchel, which features metal accoutrements, including the signature golden padlock closure, remains relevant by maintaining its exclusivity. This grey leather version was the bag du jour last autumn, and now admirers can scoop up the chocolate crocodile style for close to $13,000. Due to high demand, luxury department store Bergdorf Goodman allows customers to order no more than three every 30 days.
Gucci | Boston | $11,990 +
This medium-sized croc bag, with bamboo details and gold hardware, rings in at almost $12,000, but the larger version will set you back $13,900. It’s also available in black crocodile, patent leather and guccissima leather.
Bottega Veneta | Bambina | $7,800
Unlike powerhouses Louis Vuitton or Chanel, Bottega Veneta has no recognizable logo or trademark handbag shape. Available only at Bottega Veneta boutiques, the spring line offers quality, exclusivity and status. This soft crocodile Bambina, available in Biscotto Fume, has a suede lining and magnetic closure.
Devi Kroell | Crystal Disco Ball | $4,900
Devi Kroell, who first became well known in fashion circles for her slouchy, metallic python hobos, gives the evening bag a much-needed injection of edgy glamour by covering it in black crystals.
