Wow! I thought the leggings were only 100k. The exact price is horrifying.

^The biggest surprise for me was that the black ones were the most expensive in the collection. They don't look as elaborate as the gold ones.

Judging by the price of HF these days, I wasn't too shocked tbh.

It's a steal compared to those leggings from Balenciaga!

Some of those decimal points need to be moved a bit more to the left imo...

How are the leggings more expensive than that dress? Also, they just let anyone walk around and touch clothes that cost as much as a nice car? I mean I know they're usually tied to something with a wire and sensor but still..

As nice as a fur coat is It's definitely nowhere near as desirable as a car or piece of jewelry that needs heavy guarding. Plus, it will depreciate at least 50% by the end of the season.

^^Yes, they actually let people touch the clothes because believe it or not people actually buy it and without doing a reference check you cannot seriously vet people who can actually afford that coat to be able to touch it.

You all are focusing on the super limited high priced items which are actually, given their specialized manufacturing and materials, are probably more accurately reflected in price than a lot of the cheaper stuff.

Those Balenciaga leggings for example, they were never designed to go into production (they were literally sewn on to the models before the show). So producing them for sale, having to fabricate each piece and have them engineered to actually go on and off the body, is no simplefeat. How is it more expensive than most luxury cars? Consider that with those cars the factory is set up to pump them out and get them on the sales floor at a reasonable cost, Balenciaga is doing everything from scratch for a run of a probably less than a dozen. The price skyrockets up.
