Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen's Ridiculously Expensive Fur Backpack

Looking for a fashionable and functional backpack? Check out the new Olsen twins fur backpack ... it'll only set you back $16,900.


Oh, and it's fur so those PETA people are sure to love you.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have designed one heinous looking little backpack for their clothing and accessories line The Row.

The patchwork-look fur backpack is beyond fug, but the retail price is even more offensive.

Who spends $16,900 on a backpack?

If fur isn't your style, then perhaps you'd prefer the black shiny calf skin, slate shiny alligator or black alligator styling instead?

Celeb stylist Rachel Zoe is a fan of the furry backpack, writing in her June 26 newsletter: "Pretty in patchwork, The Row's posh pack combines comfort and class. The fuzzy texture on this nifty knapsack is also a fashion favorite. Perfect for pre-fall, it's never too soon to start thinking ahead for your next season's staple!"

Is she serious?

We're waiting for PETA to weigh in on this one, because you know they'll have something to say about the Olsen twin's use of fur on their knapsack.

If you think the price tag is a little steep, consider that the backpack they offered last year from their The Row label, selling at $39,000, sold out.

At the time, Ashley told WWD, "It was the first thing that sold off the shelf."
