Making Ends Meet

The best collaborations are the unexpected ones

Alexander Wang[1]’s urban ease meets Judith Leiber’s meticulous detail with this limited-edition piece designed to look like a roll of $100 bills. Beyoncé[2] carried the bag to her husband Jay-Z’s Tidal X Brooklyn party, while Kim Kardashian[3] has been spotted by paparazzi on the West Coast clutching it harder than if it was real cash. More than 10,000 Swarovski[4] crystals encase the couture money roll, which takes an artist a full week to bead. Now that’s priceless.

Evening bag, $4,995, ALEXANDER WANG x JUDITH LEIBER, alexanderwang.com[5]. Lipstick, $14, L’OREAL PARIS COLOUR RICHE x BALMAIN, Barneys New York and barneys.com[6].
