Tom Ford’s latest handbag really stinks, and we don’t mean that in just the figurative sense. Clad in the carcass of a hapless skunk, the furry black-and-white number appears more like a prank than a luxe object of desire. The price for wrapping PepĂ© Le Pew’s Italian cousin around your fingers? $1,660. While animal cruelty is indefensible on any level, the use of fur for an ill-conceived gimmick strikes us as particularly egregious. Here’s hoping shoppers know a bad idea when they smell one.
