Having left the Louis Vuitton label to focus on his own brand, Marc Jacobs brought out all of his guns to create his Spring 2015 Collection, which was filled with military-inspired pieces with utilitarian details and edgy cuts. One of the more notable pieces from this collection is the Surplus Plus Bag done in luscious alligator skin leather.
The hobo shoulder bag is effortlessly elegant with its textured exotic leather and classic colors. This particular style will be sure to upgrade any outfit from drab to fab, but that's if you are willing to splurge on a five-figure handbag. With a price tag of $40,000, this Marc Jacobs alligator purse is surely one of the most expensive designer purses we have seen this year.
There's no question about Marc Jacobs' style prowess and ability to create wonderful pieces of clothes, handbags and shoes. To back it up, he even ensures a great runway show with each collection launch. However, this latest purse might be pushing too much. Not everyone can afford ludicrously priced purses, after all.
If you are willing to hand out your hard-earned moolah for this gorgeous bag, head over to Moda Operandi and shop their trunk show, which will be ending in a couple of days.
