I can't believe there are women out there who are foolish enough to buy something so trendy for $25,000!!!

^It's not even $25.000, it's 24.260 euros which is almost $32.500 for a cotton and elastane dress .

^ Okay that's one of the worst ones I've seen - that's just a basic blouse with a few very minor details (the design of which can be found in H&M).
Unless those snap-studs are 22ct gold the cost price for it can't be over £20.

the pic was so small it messed up the stripes on my screen, so at first I thought it was moire and I was gonna say maybe that was what made it special, but it's definitely not the case HAHAHA

I can actually justify the Louis Vuitton pricing of that specific dress, with it being Ostrich Feathers and the process it'd have to go through with dying and the application of the Feathers, but the Céline look on the other hand... absolutely ridiculous! how on earth is that priced so highly ? and how can Céline and LVMH justify it ?!

^

I had to see HQ's of that Celine look and it turns out that both the skirt and top are made of leather. I suppose that's the reason for the high pricing?

^I think that is understandable now, with it being made from Leather, i guess there's more craftsmanship in that outfit than that of a bag, for instance.

definitely understandable, I wouldn't believe it if i was told that that was all leather. but the leather must've been worked very carefully to achieve that fabric look.

I know it's made of Crocodile, but I was in shock when I saw the price.

Louis Vuitton S/S12 Coat

$176,375.00




I don't know if that's an error, but it's what W listed the price as.
