Okay, so before you start guessing, you need to know that this is not just any old basket…it is made by CHANEL. Remember the Spring/Summer 2010 barn show? Well, this was one of the bags that the models carried. Now how much would you shell out for a designer accessory like that?
Guess the price and then click to see if you were right!
This basket-purse will set you back $12,500! That is dollars. Not imaginary dollars. Not even 12,500 Canadian Tire dollars. Nor is it a typo…I didn’t mean to type 12,500 pennies or 0.12500 dollars. Nope. TWELVE THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS.
Let that sink in for a moment. At this point, you can probably buy 3 classic flap bags for the amount of money that would cost you to get this basket. Or that lovely Russian doll purse, which I TOTALLY WOULD BUY FOR THAT AMOUNT OF MONEY if I didn’t have to pay bills. I am guessing only the most affluent will be able to afford to buy this one, so that they can wear it to their impromptu picnics in the country. I love Karl and his zany ideas, but for the rest of us, there’s always Dollarama, some fake flowers, and a little DIY creativity.
So tell me, if you had $12.5K lying around your house begging to be spent on something frivolous…would you buy this basket-purse?
