We will always remember last year’s Met Gala, not for the gorgeous gowns or the theme, but for the epic melee that happened after the big event. Indeed, how could anyone forget about that post-gala elevator fight between Jay Z and sister-in-law Solange Knowles? Caugh on video, Solange hit the rapper with more than a few kicks and smacks as things got heated during an argument, the subject of which remains a mystery to this day.

Anya Hindmarch was proud to be part of this moment in pop culture history, as Solange was carrying one of her Crisp Packet clutches that night and actually smacked Jay Z with it in the (soundless) security video. Now, Hindmarch is updating the iconic piece, this time crafting versions in 18k yellow gold, rose and white gold. 

Hindmarch says she got the idea for the bags after a customer requested one in gold. Figuring other people might be interested in such a fancy item, she decided to go ahead and create a small collection of the pricey bags. The yellow gold bag the designer calls “wearable art; a very fluid, sculptural piece” takes four months to make and will set you back $95,200. 

Something tells us Jay Z wouldn’t want to get smacked with one of these babies.
