Well, if her costs are the same ... they are heritage houses, but is that unfairly penalizing her for not being a zillion years old, or not having a job designing for someone else? If you look at the current designers of these houses, she doesn't seem outranked (in fact ...).

My complaint with Stella is what appears to me to be a lack of house codes. It is possible that they are there & I just don't understand them

My former SA at Barney's was recruited by the new Stella boutique here & she sent me some lookbooks ... not my thing. I will say that some of her tailoring is impressive.

Some menswear to mix it up! Prada F/W 2013 jacket: 3.150 euros


style

I really want this jacket, it looks like the perfectly cut jacket and I could wear it for the long run! The price scares me a bit but in the mean time that my sales person is trying to get it in for me, I am saving for it!

Are the sleeves on the Celine coat supposed to be for "cool" factor only? Either way, it is gorgeous and worth the damn price.

The Prada menswear just screamed "Yes losers, I look expensive". Worth that 3000 euros tag for sure.

are some of these pieces actually overpriced? outerwear is always expensive, i don't find the prada or the celine pricetags too crazy considering the brands and the fabrics etc.
the most lol-inducing item i've seen recently is this top that mom was lusting after


lyst.com

it's silk, ok, but it's not even the finest silk you'll ever have, believe me, and it retails for 1530 euros. like, why?

Has someone seen those Celine boots in real life? If so, where?
