10 Most Expensive Designer Handbags in the World in 2016

Page 1 of 7

Everybody knows money gets a little tight around the holiday season, so if you’re still wondering what NOT to get your lady friend this year, here is a list of the 10 most expensive designer handbags in the world in 2016. Not only are these purses bafflingly expensive, but some of them are also as ugly as punching one’s own mother in the gut.

Big fashion houses are known –among other things- for charging ludicrous amounts of money for their clothes and accessories. Of course, I would never reject a Hermès handbag if it was given to me for free (Santa, if you’re reading this, please take note), however, it’s not something I would buy for myself. I love fashion, I truly do, but it’s still astounding to me how overpriced stylish items can be, and how much would one spend to own a silly little fashion piece like that.

In most cases, the materials (such as genuine crocodile skin, or 14 carrot diamonds) account for a large portion of the price, but in a way, it’s still mostly about the brand. Hermès, for instance, is the most featured brand on our list, being famous for their extravagant prices; our 10 Most Expensive Louis Vuitton Handbags list is also worth looking at, just to get the hang of it.

I should probably specify that not all of these bags on our list are from a 2016 collection, but most are still available for purchase, even though I hardly think you’d be interested in such an investment. Honestly, how much would you be willing to spend on a bag? A hundred bucks? Six hundred? A thousand? A couple of millions? If you’re curious to know how far people are willing to go in order to parade their wealth in public, just keep reading!
