If you’re a designer bag whore, the chances are highly likely that you’re familiar with the Olsen twins latest tricked-out-purse. Ashley and Mary-Kate have collaborated with artist Damien Hirst for their pricey handbag line, ‘The Row’. Priced at $55,000 each, the fashion forward twins are releasing 9 one-of-a-kind crocodile skin pieces, some of which are decorated with colorful prescription pills.
According to reports, there will only be 12 of each of the 9 styles made and a portion of the proceeds will benefit UNICEF. More official dets about the bag below:
Available for purchase from 12/12/12. Exclusive to Just One Eye and only one in a rare, limited edition of 12, this incredible piece features numerous multicolored prescription pill appliqués, of varying sizes and colors, specially created by Damien Hirst. This one-of-a-kind wearable art work features original art by Hirst, meticulously applied to front, back, and straps, of The Row’s beautifully crafted backpack, the centerpiece design of their 2012 collection. Using traditional techniques, this stunning backpack was crafted in Italy and made with specially sourced materials. Created of black patent leather Nile crocodile, the backpack’s many features include internal detachable handle, adjustable canvas straps, internal zip-fastening, slit pockets, and small gold-plated brass feet at base. Each backpack is fully lined in the highest quality leather and comes with metal mirror plate and case, as well as designer-stamped gold-plated brass hardware. Signed by Damien Hirst.
