I think this Rodarte sweater is just way too overpriced. It doesn't even look good.

I wonder how they justify the price on that Rodarte sweater

An Alexander Wang sweater made out of the same fabric is 250$ . I understand that Wangs might be produced in China, using cheaper fabrics in larger quantites BUT when even Loro Piana manages to sell their baby cashmere sweaters for 1600$ then Rodarte should be able to offer theirs at roughly the same price. I am tolerable when it comes to prices but this is exsessive.

The Gucci jacket is entirely embroidered with sequins, and posting to India costs a lot.
Neither fact makes it any less ugly, though.

^That isn't that bad to be fair, the price is on par with other diffusion lines like Marc by Marc Jacobs to be honest.

And again, the Gucci jacket is only justifiable by the amount of work put into it during production.

No way would I ever pay that much for polyester. Surely you could find something similar at H&M for a much more reasonable price.

A polyester dress over $700 is just a rip off. Where was it made, maybe the quality is a bit better than other dresses but won't hold my hopes up.
