A new blog, maybeyoushouldntbuythat.com, publishes pictures of ridiculously expensive products. Describing itself as "a collection of the most expensive and most worthless items in the world" it is proof that some people really do have more money than sense. Among the items on show is this Ginza Tanaka handbag, covered in platinum and diamond studs, retailing for $1.63 million.
The DualTow watch by Christophe Claret retails for $300,000, but it only displays the time to the nearest five minutes. As the people behind the blog say: "So you’re paying for a, seemingly, needlessly complicated watch that doesn’t actually tell you the correct time".
The Brigg umbrella, which comes fitted with a screw-in glass flask, retails for about $725. The people who run the blog say: "The umbrella says, 'Man of taste', while the flask says, 'There’s a good chance I’ll pass out in a ditch somewhere tonight'. Two great looks married together in one convenient package".
The $2,800 Pizza Royale 007, created by Chef Domenico Crolla, is topped with tomato pizza sauce, smoked salmon, venison medallions, cognac-marinated lobster and champagne-soaked caviar. Oh, and 24-carat gold leaf.
