Olsens’ $55,000 Handbags Will Be Loved By Pill Poppers, Set To Go On Sale Next Week

olsen twins

Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen have released another ridiculously expensive purse. The Olsens’ $55,000 handbag is set to go on sale next week and it looks like the former child stars have already picked out the bags’ ideal demographic: Prescription pill poppers.

The bag, which is set to go on sale on December 12, is decorated with various pills. According to Entertainment Weekly the Olsens’ $55,000 handbag is nearly identical to the $39,000 crocodile bag they sold last. This year bag apparently warrants a $16,000 because designer Damien Hirst decorated the bags with a bunch of multi-colored pills. If it makes you feel any better the Olsen twins will be donating some of the money to UNICEF.

If you’re interested in buying one of the Olsens’ $55,000 handbags you’ll need to get yourself a good therapist. If that doesn’t help and you still want to buy one of the bags, you’ll need to be one of the first people on on December 12. Only a dozen of the bags will be sold from the website.

The website writes:

“Exclusive to Just One Eye and only one in a rare, limited edition of 12, this incredible piece features numerous multicolored prescription pill appliqués, of varying sizes and colors, specially created by Damien Hirst. This one-of-a-kind wearable art work features original art by Hirst, meticulously applied to front, back, and straps, of The Row’s beautifully crafted backpack, the centerpiece design of their 2012 collection. Using traditional techniques, this stunning backpack was crafted in Italy and made with specially sourced materials. Created of black patent leather Nile crocodile, the backpack’s many features include internal detachable handle, adjustable canvas straps, internal zip-fastening, slit pockets, and small gold-plated brass feet at base. Each backpack is fully lined in the highest quality leather and comes with metal mirror plate and case, as well as designer-stamped gold-plated brass hardware. Signed by Damien Hirst.”

The $39,000 crocodile handbag was put on Anderson Cooper’s RidicuList last year but the Olsen twins got the last laugh when the product quickly sold out. Do you think the Olsens’ $55,000 handbag will do the same?

Too Fab reports that the pill popping bags have been criticized by some for pushing drug use. Others have noted that the prescription pill bag is an odd choice for Mary-Kate Olsen who was a close friend of Heath Ledger, who died of an accidental overdose of prescription drugs.

What do you think of the Olsen twins pill popping bags?

    If you've got $55,000. to buy a dam handbag, then you 've got more money, than you should have! How about feeding some of the starving children in the world and in this country! UGH! This makes me sick!

    So sad isn't it – does anyone know if they help anyone – you know charities, donations? It would be nice to think since they are among the richest people in the country they do something.

    I don't care if you've got 55K to burn. That bag is ridiculous, tacky and to put it bluntly I wouldn't carry if I were dead. And if I had as much money as the Olsen's I'd just donate 1M to Unicef not make a bunch of tacky idiots fork it over all in the name of charity. I hate that crap.

    If you're stupid enough to plunk down $55,000. for a purse, you deserve to get taken! Bwahahahahahahahaaaa!

    What can you expect from a fraud and opportunist like Hirst. He thinks if he sticks his name and his childish "art" on something it will be expensive. Add in the Olsen Twins and you've got scam city going on.

    If you don't like the bag don't buy the Bag. The money is going to a good cause, Geez people stop hating.

    55,000 dollars to some people it's like 100 dollars is to you. I bet you or someone you know have spent 100 or more on a cell phone or computer. meanwhile children in Somalia or the USA are starving and 100 dollars could feed plenty of them. It's easy to sit back and wait for the rich to do all the work Joyce. 55,000 won't end world hunger in fact 500 million wont end it. People can't stop enjoying their life thinking that instead of spending their hard earned money they could be feeding the poor. Think about that next time you're at the apple store or just at the mall this Christmas and donate that money instead. I hate people who sit back and want to tell the wealthy what to do with their money. But yet sit their butt at home on their computer not doing a damn thing about world hunger SMH

    Meanwhile….in 3rd world countries where people starve to death….

    This bag sounds more like a work of art going to a good cause then your average everyday handbag. If you can afford it, have at it.

    You know what, Joyce had a right make her comment. The thing is, the people who buy these bags usually DON'T give to charities. I do a bake sale every year to support No Kid Hungry, and you know who buys the goodies and donates? Hardworking everyday people. I live in a very affluent area of Los Angeles (Not Beverly Hills, my area has a lot more money and more privacy for the celebs who do live around here), and I don't usually see the women who parade their Prada's, Jimmy Choo's, Louis Vuitons and etc giving it up for charity. In fact a lot of the time they try to haggle the prices to pay LESS. It's the mom's with kids who sport a Worthington, Relic, Liz or Rosetti's that fork over the money. It's families of soldiers that are packing up care packages for soldiers who have no family. It's Reverends, and other volunteers who are not rich helping in the soup kitchens. Yes, there are Celebrities that support charities and yes there are philanthropists, but to be honest they are few and far between. More of these people can pony up time and money, especially if they are going to blow 50,000 dollars for a freakin back-pack.

    well said Holly. and of the 55,000 how much is going to unicef? i'll bet not even 50%. the wealthy should put their money where their mouth is because they have it and i don't
