We all had to know ,though, that Slimanes prices were going to be through the roof, just because he can, right?

I was thinking it'd be worse, but then again this is sort of a capsule collection, i guess.
Still, i won't be spending 3,000 euros on a biker jacket that looks exactly like the one i used to wear when i was 15 only cause it says 'saint laurent' on it

A lot of the st Laurent is reasonable. The jewelry is overpriced, but most of the rtw and accessories are average. And I expected the shoes to cost much more!

^ the shoes are lackluster verging on very ugly though, who would pay more for that? in all honesty, they really need to work on the accessories. There's a pair of mary jane flats in the store that's among the ugliest shoes i've ever laid my eyes on.

What the what!?! Acetate and viscose?! That just infuriates me, as much a fan as I am of Slimane and his clothing.
Any half-educated fashionista has every right to cause a scene in the store - and I hope many do :p I could make that exact same skirt for a couple dollars. And yes I know you're paying for the brand, for status and all that, but impeccable quality and fine fabrics are also meant to aid in justifying such prices... How much does adding a 'Saint Laurent' tag truly justify the fact that this is a hideous skirt made in dirtcheap synthetic fabrics.
Not impressed.

I saw a Chanel Cruise Versailles bag in Elle that was clear plastic with a leather trim for $3,100 USD.

I was just looking through a Harper's Bazaar from 2007 and the price for this Dolce & Gabbana dress was $175.000 . I always estimated the gowns from that show to be somewhere around 100.000 but close to 200.000? Are the embellishments precious stones or something?


style.com

Does anyone else have prices of the gowns from that collection?

175k? That's within the price points of couture!

I know that they were all embroidered by Lesage in Paris and given the complexity of these dresses they probably are on couture level, price as well as craftmanship-wise.

And the thing that made this collection so memorable for me is this manifest of pure awesomeness.

Yes, that clutch is GORGEOUS, but no way is it worth that much. Absurd -__-
