Could this R7k Prada paperclip be the perfect back-to-work accessory?

Could this R7k Prada paperclip be the perfect back-to-work accessory?

We think that maybe this is directed at the type of person who has done away with wallets and keeps rolls of money...

Remember that time Prada designed those shoes that looked a lot like school shoes? Well, this time things are slightly more weird, but not so much, if that makes any sense. 

Prada offers a sterling silver paperclip-shaped money clip for $400. That's a whopping R7,603.40. 

Now, at first glance, you would think who would want to spend that much on something that you can get for a couple of Rand? 

But when you have a little think about it, money clips have become something of a trend amongst people. With Hip Hop artists and Pop Culture references to the use of money clips, these accessories have become something of a statement piece.

"Measuring 6.25 centimeters long and 2.25 centimeters wide, Prada’s high-end paper clip costs just over $50 (R950) per square centimeter. Despite its luxurious aura, Twitter users express skepticism about the $400 paper clip, questioning its utility and price." (Instagram)
