So here's the low down; Damien Hirst and MK and A from The Row (aka Mary Kate and Ashely Olsen) have teamed up with the e-retailer Just One Eye to create a limited edition line of 12 backpacks, each one different to the next and retailing at a whopping US $55,000. Part of this mammoth price tag is said to go to Hirst's choice of charity (thank god) while the buyer gets to revel in his/her wearable piece of art. Some call it an "exercise in frivolity" while Just One Eye say that this project is "a fascinating study on contrasts" and that it "blurs the line between fashion and art".... What do you guys think? Let's just say if I got one for Christmas I wouldn't turn it down!
