Ladies (and gents, if you’re into handbags), if you have ever looked at your purse and thought “this really could be more like a boom box”, then you’re in luck because such a product exists…for about $9,000.
Dolce & Gabbana have come out with a radio bag that includes build-in speakers and a cord so it actually works as a functional boom box. Plus, at 19×14.5×7 cm, it’s both large enough to be useful and small enough to not be a hassle to carry around. This is just one of the 80s-inspired pieces hitting the runways this fall (according to the New York Post, even shoulder pads have made a return).
The purse’s body is made of hand-painted wood and the top handle and removable shoulder strap are made of Ayers leather. The inside is lined with leather and it comes with a customized compact mirror so you can check that your Aqua Net is still doing its job.
For volume control, there’s an external volume control. Inside the purse there’s a pocket for the batteries. Of course, the batteries are not included.
The purse has not yet been released yet and is available for pre-order. Or, it would be if it wasn’t already sold out. I’m not sure how many were made available for pre-order, but there’s obviously a few people able to drop $8,895 USD for this designer boom box purse.
