There’s nothing shows class like a good purse.
Jewellery’s all very well, and a jab or two of Botox and a spray-tan touch up can do wonders, but a really nice bag for the Winnie Blues really says something about a person.
The Mouawad 1001 Nights purse says,loud and proud, ‘Rich AF’.
It’s a heart-shaped purse handcrafted from 18-karat gold, and incorporates 4517 diamonds (105 yellow, 56 pink, and 4356 colourless) giving a total weight of 381.92 carats.
That’s a lot carats to have hanging off the wrist when you’re sharing a kebab and a flagon with a few mates after the footy.
In 2011 the Mouawad was named the world’s most expensive purse by Guinness Brewery – or someone like that. We were a bit distracted when we read that bit – and if you’re keen you can log on to mouawad.com and ‘request an interview’. If Mouawad reckons you’re worthy they’ll allow you to dump US$3.8 million on the 1001 Nights purse.
We’re guessing if you’re standing there with $3.8 mill in your hand, you could show up in a Rex Hunt beanie and crutchless dungarees and they’d still take your cash.
