Fendi Is Promoting A $US700 Handbag Accessory That Looks Like A Furby

In a recent interview on the Jimmy Kimmel Show, best-selling recording artist and haute couture maven Kanye West expressed frustration with luxury retailers for deluding consumers. In his mind, the only real luxury in life is the time people get to spend with their loved ones.
