Chanel's $50K Bag Is A Really Big Seashell

There are a few cutsey handbags that are worth the high-ish price point if you're into it — the Christopher Kane gel clutch, the Olympia Le-Tan book handbag, or Mandy Coon's adorable bunny bag. But how much would you pay to make a statement? If you're looking to impress the Maharaja or fool King Midas, then this clutch might be for you.
The Chanel Shell costs $33,000 and the same version studded (naturally) with freshwater pearls? That'll cost you $48,000. While it might be cool if you're six or if your father is King Triton, we can't imagine any occasion that would make this worth more than some 20-something's salary. (Also...a shell? That's a little symbolic of something...right?) All jokes aside, it might've been better to just call it a centerpiece/candy dish and serve Laduree macarons like pearls (très luxe!) Maybe then, we'd consider buying it for our under-the-sea-themed Miami shorefront penthouse. Come to think of it, maybe Agyness Deyn would buy it? (Yahoo)
