The newest “must-have” for the rich and famous is a purse shaped like the iconic art deco Chanel No. 5 perfume bottle. The transparent plexi-glas purse that measures 7 x 5 x 2 inches, hangs from a long metal chain interlaced with leather. A Chanel online dealer said “price on request” so we checked. Order it for $9,500 plus $1,000 shipping and wait for delivery (why is shipping so much?), or buy it now for $13,250 plus $175 shipping. You might want one of the “inspired by” designs already on eBay for $150, but the authentic and very expensive purse will probably be an investment that will go up in price.
