Even though it seems like handbags get more and more expensive every season, there’s at least a bit of evidence that prices are leveling out at some levels of the market. Rare Hermès Birkins may be selling for ever-higher prices, but the most expensive bags from brands like Fendi, Givenchy and The Row seem to have cooled down.

We track a variety of ultra-luxury categories in stock at online retailers every season, including exotic and heavily embellished bags, and not only have prices in those categories leveled off, but fewer bags in those categories are finding their ways onto the websites of large online retailers. That may indicate a stagnation in consumer interest in the US, a desire by brands to keep those rare bags from seeming too common or both.

Whatever the reason, you can check out this season’s most expensive pieces below.

The only one I’d buy is the Jypsière, but in the less-expensive smaller size and another color. I love that design!

Had to check out the Dora on LV website and guess what, the alligator Dora PM is the most expensive — $50,000! And it looks tiny.

By next season, many of these bags will look “so last year”

I can’t imagine spending that much money on anything sight unseen. Yeah, they’re pictures, but I would need to see if in person. I have loved bags that I’ve seen online only to be disappointed when seeing them in store.

Trust me, when it comes to bags, I am a greedy hoarder. I have to have them all when I see something beautiful. But I would happily donate the money to charity rather than spending on any of these ridiculous bags.

I genuinely hope that the Zagliani crocodile bag is merely accented with fox fur instead of being fully lined with fox pelts. All handbags get dirty with use, particularly the interiors; with a fur lining, it would be impossible to clean it at home – a drink spilled in it would be a hefty cleaning fee at a furrier. This bags seems like a waste of beautiful crocodilian hides and fox pelts.
