Would You Buy $130,000 Sunglasses?

The Debate: When Luxury Goes Over the Top

According to WWD, Cartier has just upped the stakes on luxury by launching a pair of $130,000 jewel-encrusted sunglasses. I’ve heard of dishing out big bucks for designer bags, shoes and apparel, but $130,000 for sunglasses? This is ludicrous. It’s almost as insane as spending $42,000 on that hideous Louis Vuitton Tribute Patchwork bag. Maybe this is my frugal mentality, my modest income, or the fact that whenever I buy sunglasses I either lose or sit on them, but I can’t imagine ever spending that much on shades. I might go for these Marc Jacobs Metal Aviator Sunglasses ($90) or even these Oscar de la Renta Women’s Metal Sunglasses ($48), which both offer quality, haute label and classic styling, not to mention affordable price tags.

What do you say? How much is too much to spend on a pair of designer shades? Are high-end sunglasses even worth the big bucks? Post your comments below.
