Solid Gold Bags, Diamond Bras And Croc Skin T-Shirts – The Most Extravagant Fashion Creations In The World

Fashion avec Passion has already introduced you to the most expensive dresses in the world (among which, Debbie Wingham’s $5,682,950 creation, encrusted with 50 2-karat black diamonds, or the Dress Goddess $14,000 dress, also encrusted with a cascade of glimmering diamonds), but designers don’t have only dresses in mind when it comes to imagining extravagant pieces that may as well end up in the Guinness Book of Records.

If you thought a Hermès Birkin bag was the ultimate exclusive accessory, it was because you didn’t yet know about the solid gold version of iconic bag, valued at $1,980,034.

The eccentric bag is the result of a collaboration between the French fashion house and the famous jeweler and shoe designer Pierre Hardy, which resulted in four miniature versions of Hermès emblematic styles, each made out of solid gold and encrusted with a myriad diamonds. Taking into consideration the fact that only 3 pieces were made for each style, as well as the whopping price tag, the bags truly represent collector’s items.

For the male fans of the brand, Hermès proposes for this season a piece that, while not as expensive as the luxurious bags, is equally extravagant: a croc skin T-shirt, valued at $91,500, part of the brand’s Menswear collection for the Spring/Summer 2013 season.

In spite of the nearly $2 million price tag, the solid gold Birkin isn’t however the most expensive purse out there. It’s surpassed by a Robert Mouawad creation with a price tag of $3.8 million. Fashioned pout of pure 18 karat gold and encrusted with 4,517 diamonds with a combined weight of 381.92 karats, the ”1001 Nights” heart-shaped clutch is the result of 8,800 hours of work and the skill of ten artisans.

Victoria’s Secret, the world-famous lingerie brand, already has a tradition, established since 1996, of not letting a season pass without showcasing a breath-taking diamond-encrusted bra, that comes with an equally mind-boggling price tag. Among the most expensive VS bras are the Red Hot Fantasy Bra/Panties set, presented in 2000 by Gisele Bündchen, the Sexy Splendor Fantasy Bra presented in 2005 also by Gisele Bündchen and the Heavenly Star Fantasy Bra presented in 2011 by Heidi Klum (both worth $12.5 million), as well as the Millennium Fantasy Bra (1999 – Heidi Klum), Star Of Victoria Fantasy Bra (2002 – Karolina Kurkova), Very Sexy Fantasy Bra (2003 – Heidi Klum) and Heavenly 70 Fantasy Bra (2004 – Tyra Banks), each valued at $10 million.
