Over £2,100 for a small, and dare I say, common, bag is excessive. Though, I have never understood the appeal for black quilted leather.
If I had that money to burn I'd be ordering at Hermes, as previously suggested.

The fact that they raise up the price for exclusivity is pretty ridiculous, when the quality has not even rise, rising the price seems like a joke. I'd much prefer a year of endless burgers rather than that a bag that does not even seems to worth the price of 3,000. and it somehow seems funny because the logo is probably the only thing thats worth a price, I can simply have a tiny black-leathered bag and then stick the chanel logo on, and it will probably cost 10 times cheaper then the price they sell.
I am getting tired of high-end luxury brands trying to rise the price to maintain their exclusiveness.

I have to disagree. I'm sure most people would love to carry some shriveled up 30 year old Chanel bag simply so they can brag about it. That's exclusivity that you can't just buy from the store.

Balmain is definitely up there on the list, and half of his collection isn't worth the asking price! Over $3,000 for a pair of tattered jeans? ludicrous...

I've heard that there're currently about 200 purchasers of Chanel Haute Couture around the world and that the clothes may range from GBP 25k to GBP 100k but you get queen treatment (your measurements are taken wherever you want, when clothes are done, a Chanel's jet will take you to the House to try it on, if you dont even want that, ppl of the atelier will come to your house)

^i bet they can afford that level of service given what they charge for the bags.

if you consider how much a full bespoke suit costs (even from "big name" tailors), that price tag should be enough for a nice profit margin.

But ok I doubt the private jet

What about charging $500 for this?



And $300 for this?

fashionfriends.ch


Those lame bags aren't even designer items, it's just UGG. That's just rude. I'd still rather save up and get a classic Chanel bag even if the price is ridiculously increasing than waste 500 bucks on this crap

Versace is a bit expensive in my opinion.

This dress retails for $7,925.00 And it's not that exquisite looking.



And I still think that the Balenciaga FW10 shoes are too overpriced. They retail for about $7000.00

^i tend to agree. especially in a recession, it's a brave move to debut $7k+ shoes. but some of those shoes are worth every penny seeing as NO ONE is doing ANYTHING like that in the world of "it" footwear. honestly, this is shoe as art.



does anyone know how much the nina ricci skyscrapers or the alexander mcqueen armadillos fetched?

No offense, but those last two should be in The Ugliest Shoes You've Ever Seen thread...

I don't think that's too overpriced on the Balenciaga shoes, it's a unique design with unusual mixed with exotic materials.

The armadillo crab-claws were about 5k-10kea (way worth it imo they are incredible) but not many pairs were manufactured and i read that after Lee died some were asked to be returned
