LPF seems to be very overpriced.
Someone reccomended that I buy a sweater from them,

but I think i may go for that dior distressed cashmere turtleneck instead,
I believe the same one you saw at bagutta a long time ago, faust.

I've been mostly in california or spring/summer hong kong weather..
so im really not prepared at all for the winters traveling around asia.

Up until now I didn't have a heavy coat or thick sweater for the simple fact that its unecessary here.

that color is sold out
but the grey one is beautiful as well.

Good lord....someone should make a law preventing me from buying more of dior's current season.

I just find its a wonderful collection and so wearable as well..

Why on earth is Lucien Pellat-Finet so highly priced? I mean I know about economies of scale and all that ginseng but the prices are ludicrous...

That's what I wanna know too. How good can cashmere possibly get?

And i also don't like how they're so smug about their prices...i saw some shirt by Lucien that had on the back something like "Lucien's prices are insane!"

It sure is. I think it said "Crazy Lucien, His Prices are Insane [or 'Ludicrous', can't remember which]".

What I'm more baffled by is why this sweater:



costs $3000+ when Aloharag has the same sweater by Lucien, except the tongue is grey and that one costs less than half the price of the red one. Unless that's a Japan only limited edition or something, I don't see how a red tongue justifies paying double the price. That's a very nice sweater though...Brandon Davis was wearing it but for some reason anything looks cheap on him.

the skull with red tongue is "inlaid with Swarovski".

I don't know how you dress..but if your leaning towards japanese street style I could see them working..

My problem with them isn't the round toe so much as the extreme high heel..then again..your tFS-name does indicate your preference..

I like them, but they might be hard to wear with med. blue jeans, because of the color scheme. but with dark blue... hot.


they also come in red you know?
