News about Michael Jackson’s brief auctioning for $1 million and Star Wars actor Luke Skywalker’s pants selling for $36,100 has startled us enough to be much astounded by Hedi Slimane’s floral printed “frock” coming with a ridiculously unmatchable price tag of $68,000. Nonetheless, we can’t imagine the absurdity of the situation, how Slimane in his right mind fathomed that this under-aged floral print would be well-received by the audience. That too, taking into consideration the sophisticated taste of most customers of Saint Laurent.
It certainly doesn’t come as a surprise that Hedi Slimane’s controversial grunge-inspired collection received mixed reviews. However so, we surely cannot digest the high price of this 90’s inspired baby doll, mini dress, that Cara Delevingne sports in the fall ads, featuring a Peter Pan collar, tiny puffed sleeves, and ample embellishments.
