For anyone who doesn’t want to saunter into work and make it rain paper clips like the king baller of office supplies, you can spend that same money on just one.
The Prada paper clip is just the latest addition to a long line of unnecessarily expensive items from it designers at the moment. A blue tote bag from Balenciaga went on sale earlier this year for $2,145, over 2,145 times the cost of Ikea’s original 99-cent bag that looked strikingly similar. And in December, Nordstrom sold out of a leather-wrapped rock (yep literally a rock) priced at $85.
But if you’re still planning to blow your paycheck on the clip, don’t panic: “Prada” is engraved on one side, so no one will mistake the $185 investment for its one-cent counterpart
