We’ve talked about Tom Ford bags a bit on PurseBlog, and it seems that our team has mixed feelings. I tend to like the direction of the line, while Amanda thinks that the designs are lacking. Just goes to show you – our taste is similar, but it’s definitely not identical.
But a bag that I recently found staring at me from my computer screen isn’t like the rest of the Tom Ford collection. It’s furry and totally out-there, and guess what, the fur of this bag isn’t just made to look like skunk, it is skunk. That’s right, for $1,660 you can own a designer bag made from skunk fur.
I find it oddly humorous that Tom Ford turned to an animal that is not known for the beauty of its fur, rather the atrocious smell it can make, to design a bag that’s sold at high end retailers. The fur comes from an Italian skunk (not sure how they compare to American skunks), and it adorns the golden-framed bag and pushlock closure. When it comes to a bag this odd, there’s no one better to turn to than you all to fill in the blank. Buy via Neiman Marcus for $1,660.
