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

An LV dress is nothing but a glorified Marc Jacobs dress with a few feathers on it, and they want to charge $100,000 more for it!?!? Get outta here........I'm sure someone will buy it.

Hermes Crocodile jackets are even more expensive. And remember, they pay at least 1000€ for 50cm of crocodile.

This skirt is the only one made in the world, made from Leather and Feathers applied by Lemarié and was sold exclusively at the Champs Elysees flagship store, I'm unsure on the price but one can only assume that the price is excessive.

Louis Vuitton Fall Winter 2007

I think I remember a mens coat in the 150000€ range. But its notable that the LV one is a lot longer than the jacket you posted. It's a great piece but ... arent people scared of it getting dirty and stuff?

Here's the HQ:



Though I love the the coat and the powerdy finish to the crocodile, I think the effect could have been very similarly achieved by using embossed leather, as seen here with this croc-embossed bag by Yves Saint Laurent:



and it would cost several $10,000s less.

Sure, the LV one is a coat; but you mentioned H jackets being more expensive thus my example

I don't know, if I could I wouldn't be scared to wear it. But I guess it depends of what kind of relationship you have with the things you own. Some like to try to keep them in their original state forever, some like to use them.

can anyone confirm that producing faux leather is more expensive than working with actual leather? it's something i've always wondered. and it confused me cause i've got tons of vegan friends and while they're not into high fashion they buy man-made shoes and they're never *that* expensive
