As people have grown obsessed not just with carrying stuff, but how they carry said stuff, we've seen some strange bag designs on the market. But this here's the cake-taker. High-end German travel gear company Rimowa makes this Aluminum Sling Clutch, which seems like something you buy for a couple where one partner's a fashionista and the other is really into EDC.
I suppose if you're carrying something precious that's roughly 5" x 8" and 1.5" thick, and you'd like to advertise this to those around you, this fits the bill perfectly.
The aluminum shell flips open to reveal a gusseted leather compartment to hold your bauble, while two slots will hold credit cards. The lid is held shut by a button-style spring-loaded latch.
It also comes in black.
Price? $1,170. Yeah.

$1,100 and no way to lock it? Makes sense.....
Found this about a year ago when looking at cross-body bags, particularly one I could stash my film camera in. This looked great until you see the price, but I could imagine it'd be good for protecting cameras. Funny how with luxury goods they're always hesitant to show anything inside of them, for fear it doesn't justify the price.
