Unless Santa is planning on being very good to you this year, there are just some bags so extravagant and so expensive that all we can do is sit and wonder at their beauty (and their attached price tags). These are those perfectly-crafted creations. Whether you like your dream accessories in slick exotic skin or embellished with the finest of precious metals, there’s a bag in this bunch that is sure to live up to your greatest fantasies; and hey, if you keep the mid-work week slump from getting you down, maybe, just maybe, you’ll be able to play Santa one day and reward yourself with the present of a lifetime…
Asprey Private Collection 167 Handbag in Mahogany Polished Crocodile with 18K Yellow Gold and Cognac Diamonds: A polished croc top handle would be a treasure in itself, but add gold hardware and sparkling cognac diamonds, and it becomes a true work of (wearable) art. On Moda Operandi for $114,000.
Buccellati One of a Kind Sterling Silver and Gold Evening Clutch: When you’re spending this much on a bag, it’s nice to know that there’s nothing else like it in the world. On Moda Operandi for $91,000.
The Row Alligator Backpack: Many accessories at this price point are so specific that you can only carry them on certain occasions. A backpack, on the other hand, is an everyday essential, making it all the easier to click “Add to Bag.” At Barneys New York for $34,000.
Irene Neuwirth Embellished Clutch: Irene Neuwirth’s Moonstones, Opals, and Chryoprases give this Edie Parker clutch a sense of ladylike luxe. On Moda Operandi for $27,860.
Fendi Peekaboo Mini Crocodile Satchel: Sure, this style is on-trend, but its look is also classic enough for the satchel to remain a go-to favorite even once the Peekaboo mini hype dies down a bit. At Barneys New York for $22,000.
