^I like the shape of this one.

I agree that their pricing for the bags is a bit... Unexpected. They definitely don't want to see their bags on everyone.

if i had $39,000 lying around i think I'd rather spend it on a car...
certainly wouldn't spend it on a backpack

OMG, it doesn't really even look real...more like croc-embossed leather! I'd rather have a gorgeous Nancy Gonzales bag for less than 1/10th the price.

$39,000

That's a little more than what I pay for a year of tuition for school. I couldn't even use that backpack to carry books to classes.

apparently Barney's has already received two pre-orders for the croc backpack...

^Cool!

If I could, I'd totally buy one. The leather looks divine.

I mean, there obviously will be a market for the ultra-luxe handbags - those who have money to spend and don't care if a Birkin or Nancy Gonzalez bag is better value but personally regardless if I have the money or not, I just think those pricing margins are ridiculous and unless it's handcrafted by the person who personally wrestled the alligator and then kissed by the Olsens, I'm not interested.

i think it is the height of pretension to price an item that high.
a bespoke alligator birkin is less inexpensive than this.
and its a better investment.

Jesus Christ, that's how much I pay for two years' worth of tuition! And it's not even that original a design.

It had best come with one of the twins in it.

$39 000 is a lot for a bag like that, most bags like that cost around $10 000 i think.
