Olsens’ $55,000 handbags with multi-colored prescription pills, as shown in the photo below, will be on sale starting Wednesday, December 12, 2012. Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen collaborated with artist Damien Hirst for the creation of the unique backpack, which was made from black patent leather Nile crocodile.

As noted at JustOneEye.com recently, which will exclusively sell the Olsen twins’ handbags, which are available in 12 pieces only, the design is the centerpiece of the 2012 collection of The Row, the twins’ own brand label. However, it did not mention as to whether the prescription pills are real and can be consumed.
Among the key features of Olsens‘ handbag include having an internal detachable handle and zip-fastening and adjustable canvas straps, slit pockets and small gold-plated brass feet at the base. Each of the twelve backpacks comes with a designer-stamped gold-plated brass hardware signed by Damien Hirst.
Last June, the Olsen twins were hit by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) after they sold a $17,000 fur backpack also via The Row, which were made of patches of animal fur. The animal rights group has been slamming them since 2007, and calls them names such as the Trollsen Twins.
On that same month, Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen, who were born on June 13, 1986 as twins but not identical and are known in the fashion industry, won 2012 Womenswear Designers of the Year award during the Council of the Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) Awards.
Back in October 2011, CNN host Anderson Cooper included the Olsen twins on his ‘Ridiculist’ for their $39,000 crocodile backpack also for their fashion label. Cooper said on his show that he finds it weird for anyone who will spend such amount for a backpack.
