When I first saw the price tag on this purse, I thought it was one of those happy accidents where a designer makes a product that resembles a common pop culture icon unknowingly. That’s not what this is. The Space Invaders Ephson Shoulder is a retro game inspired purse that will set you back over two grand.
This is a leather purse with a gold metal strap. It is not heated. You cannot use it to charge your phone. It doesn’t do anything aside from hold your wallet and lip gloss. The design on the front is that of the iconic pixelated Space Invader from the game by the same name. And it’s three months of my rent.
We all know that being a geek is expensive but that cost is usually spent on devices and collectibles. Not handbags. But if you’re a lover of retro AND you like to be stylish as all get out, then this is the bag for you. The Space Invaders Ephson Shoulder is retro chic and costs £1,995.
