To me, this is everything that is wrong with the fashion industry in a single bag.
One of my friends used to work for a shop owner who would swindle older socialites by sewing labels onto the most mundane outfits and selling to those label chasers.

Well, no. The others mostly complex garments made out of silk and ostrich feathers whereas this is just a cheap garment made out of cheap fabric for a ridiculous price. Every eggshell bag for the price of a really nice car looks pale in comparision.

i don't find that Burberry coat overpriced actually, but did they already start selling Summer 2013? or is that pre-order or what?

I love how my textiles class is allowing me to understand fabrics and fibers a bit more. Like for example, this. Polyester, nylon, and spandex? and it's $525? That's absurd.

Some pieces are available to order online on their page right after the show (every season).

Yes, but this thread isn't about the highest priced items, it's about designer selling things at a price much higher than what the item is worth. And simple black cotton panties are definitely not worth $525. You can get them for $2 at H&M

^€960 for a polyester sweater? Seriously? He is just ridiculous. I want to see which idiots will buy this.

There have been a lot of advances in the creation of polyester in the past 10 years. Not saying that alone justifies the price, but people shouldn't equate polyester with a lack of luxury out of hand.

God. That thing looks like goodwill donation gone wrong. Polyester or whatever, it's not even remotely pretty or flattering. Making it out of slik would not change the hideousness at all. Yes, yes, it's my outdated view of things. That clothes, especially that expensive should make the person wearing them stand out in the most positive way possible. Don't like the "ugly is the new chic".
Then again, it's Marc Jacobs, first grade hipster wear. And how I loathe all that!
