Row’s black backpack flaunts a killer price tag

Just when we think we have seen and heard everything, we came across this latest offering from the fashion world. Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, the multi-millionaire twins recently introduced a collection of their much anticipated handbags at Barneys in New York City. Through their brand The Row, the child-actresses turned designers were the talk of the town or at least one of their bags were. The particular bag that garnered all the attention was their black crocodile backpack which carries a hefty price tag of $39,000. Shocking isn’t it? At first glance it looks like a very simple and basic backpack. When you glance at it again, it still looks like a very simple and basic backpack. We are therefore left wondering what is so special about this bag other than its price tag and crocodile skin. Amanda Brooks, the fashion director of Barneys felt that there was enough design to make it interesting and beautiful and added that they truly are classic bags. Really ? Accepted that the backpack trend is making a coming back, but for that price, we are simply not sure of it.
