Known for his cool Kid-approved street wear, Alexander Wang is stepping outside his realm and getting a luxe upgrade for spring 2018. The designer teamed up with Judith Leiber for a limited-edition, Swarovski encrusted bag (that’s shaped like a stack of $100 bills of course).
As WWD reports, the minaudiere is made of 10,263 black, gunmetal, green and clear Swarovski crystals.
Accentuated with a real industrial rubber band and Chain strap, the Kistchy bag takes an entire week to hand-bead to completion. Purchasing it, however, will require an actual stack of $100 bills (and then some), as it costs a cool $4,995.
The collaboration with Leiber will make its official debut on Wang’s Spring 2018 runway this September, but there’s a catch: it will be produced in an extremely limited quantity of only 20. Members of #WangSquad better act fast.
The Alexander Wang x Judith Leiber bag will be available at the Alexander Wang New York and London stores, Saks Fifth Avenue and alexanderwang.com in November.
