More money than sense

Post by lynny » 31 Aug 2018, 21:42

Have you seen this? I suppose at just $9000 someone is thinking they must have one. 8-[

What a joke!!!

Key to the brand’s Fall/Winter 2018 collection, Balenciaga‘s densely-layered coats are finally set to hit store shelves. Despite being a single piece of clothing, the item offers seven distinct layers of different garments, ranging from a hoodie to plaid shirts to fleece jackets, with a drawstring hood allowing for a somewhat adjustable fit. Regardless, the coat’s main purpose, beyond staying warm, is ensuring a massive, imposing silhouette, drawing influence from the layers of clothing worn by skiers as they return from the slopes

I can be only a part in fashion. I can manage a few layers, but haven't enough different sizes to do that many! And all to make me look bigger? Fatter, not taller? :eek

I think the fashion houses always try to see what they can get away with every year. Funnily enough they seem to get away with quite a lot as some idiots will always buy the ridiculous if it's expensive enough.

But 9000 dollars for something that looks like it might have cost the price of 7 coats from a charity shop ???

It's 'The Kings New Clothes' in real life. :icon-mrgreen:

Do you remember the record of The Kings New Clothes? Was it Danny Kaye?
It was always on the radio in the 50's.

I buy shirts from Lowes for about $20 that David Jones sell for about $150.
The only difference I can see is the fashion label.
I would never pay $9000 for a coat.
:eek
