^ The asymmetrical nature of the hemline is what you're paying for, darling.

I do love to see polyester being used so extensively in this thread.

Aaahhh, alongside the plunging neckline illusion that parts one's boobs like the red sea. You know, I got in trouble for talking about polyester

I don't even think the Fendi snow leopard coat was that much.

^^ Unicorn eyelashes, I'm quite sure.

It's probably the highest price tag for a fur coat I've ever seen. Is it a record or someone makes even more exxy?

£90k? That's a ridiculous price for a mink coat.

even the minks with the flowers from last season were less than 50k? and the tie-dye Miu Miu ones were 50k?? I honestly can't even believe it. Stunning coat none the less.

Just remembered I posted in this collection's thread about the vile £60k pre-worn alligator coat I saw in the store.. this mink certainly [somehow] puts the alligator in the dark..

For 140k $ I expect that coat to deflect bullets and transform into a batman-style parachute.

I remember that bit... But you were shading Rei... who-- in all fairness, is the equivalent to Jesus Christ to some in the fashion world.

That Prada mink coat is perfection. All other overpriced fur coats need to hide in their gimmicky-shame. This one is timeless: If the lucky women who will own this coat travel back to in time to the 1920s, 1930s, 1940s, 1950s... she will fit right in wearing it. If she travels to the future, she will fit right in, I'm certain of it. After all the fashion-y designs-- big shoulders, gorilla-sleeves, Michelin Man silhouettes, cropped silhouettes, neon-colors... this one will stand the test of time.

You don't need 140k to get a timeless fur coat, though. The coat is wonderful and fabulous -- BUT it isn't worth it.
