MSCHF Microscopic Bag

This MSCHF Microscope Bag, measuring 657 by 222 by 700 micrometers, sold for almost $64,000 recently. It was created by a type of 3-D printing process, and permission was not sought from Louis Vuitton for the use of their logo.

Smaller than a grain of sea salt and narrow enough to pass through the eye of a needle, this is a purse so small you’ll need a microscope to see it. There are big handbags, normal handbags, and small handbags, but this is the final word in bag miniaturization. As a once-functional object like a handbag becomes smaller and smaller its object status becomes steadily more abstracted until it is purely a brand signifier.

I bet Ryanair would still charge you to bring this bag on board…

These boots also sold out pretty fast. I am getting too old…
