Top fashion houses never fail to amaze us with their daft collections of garments.

Prada has left the world stunned with their latest fashion accessory.

The Italian fashion is the latest luxury brand to take the brunt of criticism after Balenciaga received backlash for unveiling a range of items costing upwards of £800.

Balenciaga was mocked mercilessly for their fake paper shopping bag – which presumably allows rich people to imagine what it's like to carry your own shopping – and oversized blue tote come Ikea bag.

However, Prada's latest design takes the crown for the most useless item yet.

Introducing the paper clip!  

Yep, this silver piece of metal which obviously has drawn inspiration from Office World's classic stationery collection is now the MUST-HAVE accessory of the season.

This isn't just any old paper clip, though. It's a money holder. You know, the type for holding the ZERO amount of cash you'd have left after blowing it all on such useless items?

Oh, the irony.

Believe it or not, it's currently retailing on Prada's website for $185 (£140), just a smidge more than the £2.09 you'd pay for a pack of 100 paper clips at Staples. 

Twitter had a lot to say on the matter, with many taking to Twitter to poke fun at the brand.

Who knows, perhaps brands like Prada and Balenciaga are simply SO fashion forward that mere commoners like us just don't understand their genius...
