It’s an interesting time to be in the ultra-luxury business because no one really knows where the top of the market is. In a climate when a pre-owned Birkin can break records by selling at auction for well into the six figures, there’s a seemingly insatiable thirst for novelty and rarity among the world’s super rich.
Exotic bags might not be in everyone’s bag budgets, but they sure are fun to look at, especially in the bright, saturated colors that come along with spring collections. That’s why this week’s edition of Want It Wednesday centers all around them–go ahead, we don’t blame you if you get a little bit distracted.
