No-one can believe just how ridiculously expensive this Prada paperclip is
“It’s not JUST a paperclip it’s Prada.”
In case you have got loads of money and don’t know what to spend it on, Prada may have just the thing for you: a paper clip that will set you back a cool $185 (£140).
The Italian fashion designer’s limited-edition stationery is available to buy at Barneys New York and comes in sterling silver.
Its purpose is to clip your money together – which is quite handy if you have loads of £50 notes scattered around in your house.
The Prada-embossed clip is 6.25cm long and 2.25cm wide.
The website offers the basic description: “Made in Italy, Prada’s sterling silver money clip is designed in the shape of a paperclip.”
Of course the internet is having none of it:

And in case Prada’s just a tad over-budget, you can try this jazzy version from Barneys for $150 (£117).
