i don't see it as over-priced cause it's chanel, and my brain automatically thinks 'expensive' but it's canvas backpack.

My brain automatically thinks "over-priced" when I see Chanel

Well for me, I could say it's overpriced because it made by canvas and it's sooo ugly

NYC subways are full of backpacks on 20-somethings going to work.

Well, I take your point ... it's canvas and looks like an ambitious elementary school art project

I remember a few years ago when 'everyone' had jacked up their handbag prices, Chanel 2.55s started to look like a relative bargain.

I just came across this 1,885$ Mary Katrantzou skirt on Net-a-porter. At first I thought it was embellished in order to justify the rather high price, but on closer inspection it turns out that it's just a printed polyester skirt - not a bead in sight.


net-a-porter.com

Looks like Kantrantzou has to sell the simplified pieces at ridiculously high prices so that she could afford to do more Lesage-embroidered things next season.

You can buy a house in my country with those shorts. It's sad.

^That must be some sort of typo? That's on the same level as Haute Couture prices and only Haute Couture customers will be able to afford that.

Perhaps. It's in this month's US Vogue. I just remembered this dress from the Fall 2013 RTW collection, listed in US Bazaar for $130,045.
