i saw that but it's so fucking expensive it's not something that even registers in my brain +1. "Hmmmm... should I pay off my house... or buy a bag?" Most of the time, these bags are produced for marketing/publicity purposes, or are given to a few celebrities as "gifts" to be shown off as such. Very rarely does anybody actually BUY these things, and even then... I'd say they probably make only a couple. I've really never heard of anybody actually buying one at full retail, just walking into the store to get one. (NOTE: this doesn't carry over for Hermes, strangely). That being said, in most of the major flagship boutiques, they'll have one or two. I regularly see them in the main Tokyo stores, and probably in NYC they have them, too... from the major players (from Valentino to Gucci to Prada.) Just sitting there on the shelf is the bag, with the $34,000 price tag just hanging there.
