Turkey's First Lady attracts criticism after spotted wearing USD 50K handbag

Turkey, First Lady

Ankara : Turkey's First Lady Emine Erdogan recently attracted criticism after she was spotted wearing a handbag that priced USD 50,000, during her trip to Japan with President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Photos of Emine's arrival at the Imperial Palace in Tokyo with Recep Erdogan caught the attention of social media, and the users were quick to point out that the handbag the first lady wore cost around USD 50,000.

The price tag amounts to over a year's salary for 11 people on minimum wage in a country that has been trying to recover from a currency crisis, reported Ahval news. The Erdogans in the past have come under criticism for their lavish lifestyle, which critics claim, contradicts their seemingly humble and pious discourse.

"While the citizens struggle with price hikes, the Palace does not step back from luxury," Cumhuriyet newspaper remarked in reference to the 1,150-room presidential complex built under Erdogan's rule. ANI
