That bag Ashley Olsen is carrying costs $39,000

The Olsen twins are selling their new handbag line at Barneys in New York, and um, I hope they do layaway because I would love to own one of these in 10 years. From Fashionista:

“I think the bags are triple super chic,” said Amanda Brooks, Barneys’ new-ish fashion director. “Obviously we don’t carry Hermes bags in the store so we were trying to find something that appeals to that customer who is willing to spend a lot of money on a bag that’s going to last a long time and has a classic design.”

When Brooks mentions a customer willing to spend “a lot of money on a bag” she means up to $39,000 on a bag. That’s how much the crocodile backpack in the Olsen’s new bag range for the Row will set you back. But according to, two of backpacks-worth-as-much-as-your-college-tuition have already been pre-ordered.

Coincidentally, $39,000 is the exact amount of money Uncle Joey has made since Full House went off the air in 1995. Ashley’s basically carrying Dave Coulier on her shoulder.
