    And let's not forget that Net-a-Porter has been bought by Richemont, which could mean a raise in prices.

    Yes thats why they sell so quickly, both Cheryl Cole and Hilary Duff have said they shop on there regularly and actually get most of their outfits from there

    Squizree i can't see that a buy out/investment could mean a raise in prices, but it may mean they might try and get more exclusives for the site

    ^ I dunno, it's just a suggestion. Cuz a lot of the management and pricing can change after a new owner.

    I was watching some new FW10 Balmain clothes on LuisaViaRoma and I was quite shocked because the prices does not seem that high after all
    I was expecting this fur coat to be retailed at least $ 20.000 BUT it only costs 4563 euro!!

    That Fendi coat is made from lynx fur. I think the bigger issue here is that the lynx is a freaking endangered species. No matter how Fendi obtained that fur it is not right to wear such a thing. When the sales of these furs go up, so does the poaching of these animals. What a shame.

    I saw a YSL tshirt that was 50% cotton and the other 50 escapes my mind but it was for 1000 aud at my department store ... I understand the suits and other garments cost more but for an apparel item is something I don't comprehend and this goes to other designers.

    It'd not made for Iberian LYNX which is endangered its made from Farmed Canadian LYNX which are more beautiful but are quite common.

    This Versace dress is retailed 16.327,09 euro
    I don't think it's an average price for such amazing dress but the funny thing is that net a porter added 3 of them in their virtual shelves and they all went sold out in like 1 day :lol:

    I've seen many oberpriced things in my live. But nothing is as overpriced as Gareth Pugh clothing.

    900€ for a pair of cotton pants, 350€ for a pair of tiny leather gloves. Although it seems to be very high-quality, this is just too much.

    How about this sickening page of Balmain from colette.fr..

    That's right, nearly €4,000 for a 'distressed' cotton shirt with some metal..

    That Balmain jacket is just.... I don't have words. I wonder, it's even in retail. Veeeery overpriced.

    It looks good for sure, but that price is simply unreal.

    It's barely even sewn.. though I admit it's quite interesting.
