Prada Wants To Sell You A Paperclip For £140

And Twitter reacted as expected...

Remember when Balenciaga managed to launch a sell-out carrier bag for an eye-watering sum of £850? Well, it seems Prada is the next label to join the trend.

The luxury fashion house has launched a paperclip at Barneys but it's not your average WHSmith special. The sterling silver accessory is priced at $185, which is equivalent to approximately £140. Yes, seriously.

And ironically, the accessory is designed to hold money...

And the Internet reacted as expected in the wake of the news:

Many took to Twitter to reference a school favourite...

While others commented on the irony of the item...

But if you're interested, the item is still available on the website. No surprise there.
