Inside Asma and Bashar al-Assad’s Luxury Shopping Bags

The Guardian yesterday released details from the private email accounts of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his wife Asma. The emails appear to show the president and his wife going about their lives while government forces are engaged in brutal combat against the Syrian uprising.

While the president appears to spend quite some time (and money) on his iTunes account and watching (and sharing) online video clips, his wife displays a penchant for extravagant foreign furniture and décor from London and Paris. Her shopping bag includes:
