    Very sad times we are living in. :( Hope they don´t totally lost it with celebrities, because it would be horrible seeing a Nº5 ad with Kim Kardashian...

    LOL, don't worry. This will never happen. There's an ocean between Chanel beauty and Chanel fashion...
    Despite Karl's love for rich kids/aristocratic families, the strategy after all is to be present in any artistic endeavors of those pop stars. Vanessa is the perfect example. She wears Chanel in her music videos, films, when she tours and Chanel has even organized a concert of her in Paris for their staff and friends of the house.

    You still needs to be an actress in order to get those big beauty contracts. I don't see Pharrell as the face of Bleu..Gaspard is just fine.
    (I think we went totally off-topic lol).

    Let me will warm her game up haha.
    Do u have a specific style or item to refer? I mean Chanel tweed is usually a blend of fabrics. If just cashmere, probably impossible made into tweed texture....
    And 18k euro is expensive, even for Chanel, with that price, it definitely comes with sophisticated embroidery details.
    So maybe u are referring to a cashmere cardigan (that looks like jacket) with embroidery?

    Ahahahha! It seems like I can’t get away from the Ambassador title Benn98 gave me!

    I remember that for the Edinburgh collection, there were jackets made out on plain thick cashmere with the classic trimming made in the different fabrics they usual uses. But Chanel tweed are usually made out primarily of Wool or Cotton, mixed with other fabrics to add shine and stuff.
    If they had cashmere, it might have been mixed with wool or just used as a plain fabric or in knitwear...

    18000 would be fairly excessive for a Chanel jacket in RTW (even Metiers d’Arts). It could make sense in Couture...

    Monse! I actually love Monse but it is seriously overpriced. You won't get a sweater for less than 1,000 and a dress almost always pass the 2,000 mark.

    The Row is also shockingly expensive but well I guess they know their clientele.

    I knew that this sequin dress would be expensive, but that price is a ridiculous. With such money you can buy a couture piece.

    Some of those BV prices are just ridiculous. I really don't believe that they have the type of clientele to charge that much for RTW. The positive thing I can say is that at least they are actually producing a lot of their runway looks, rather than being just for show.

    So I was looking up where to buy an ostrich egg for Easter and this came up in the search...it's an empty polished ostrich egg with a stamp on it for the low low price of $315 USD. Not one of those fancy carved eggs, just an egg with a stamp and weight.

    designer goods are getting more and more expensive by the day that these days, we think it is ok to pay exhorbitant prices, and somewhat gotten used to it. I guess the world in general has gotten more affluent...

    Clothing lines have split now in order to get anything 'decent' or 'classy' you literally have to be a billionaire. otherwise gucci sweatsuits for you.
