Olsen twins to release $55,000 purses
have really outdone themselves.
and somehow found a way to top their ridiculously-priced (but completely sold out) -- by releasing a line of new ones !
Starting December 12, nine limited edition handbags from the Olsens' fashion line and they'll all cost you more than a pretty penny.
The bags, created by artist , are covered in prescription pills and made from black patent leather Nile crodocile skin. Only 12 of each bag will be made.
And while the price is INSANE, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to . No word on how much, exactly.
The pill appliqués are definitely controversial, as they seem to glamorize drug use.
Making the artistic decision even more odd is the knowledge that Mary-Kate Olsen's friend, , died of an accidental overdose of prescription drugs including painkillers, sleeping pills and anti-anxiety medication.
What do you think of the bags? And, more importantly, do you know who would buy one?
