Gucci’s $1,250 Dirty White Sneakers: Has Fashion Really Gone Bonkers?

Fashion is both a beautiful and strange subject. It is also as brilliant as it is impatience. Take for example, we love the distressed look jeans, but obviously, we can’t wait five decades for them to be as worn as we may have loved. Neither would we want to slog in a mine hundreds of feet below ground to get them to be worn and torn, and so, the brilliant minds in the fashion industry gave us pre-worn, and even hole-ridden denim, so we can get the look right out-of-the-box. Brilliant? Possibly. But this desire to accelerate natural process can, well, get out of hand sometimes and transcend to the realm of craziness. Like, remember, the muddied jeans?

LV Wants Your iPhone To Look Like A Classic Trunk With These Cases

For richie rich who adores the Parisian label Louis Vuitton’s iconic trunks, there’s probably nothing more thrilling than to be able to flaunt the lucrious trunk ever so often. Actually, we are not sure if anyone love to do that, but if you do, then the Louis Vuitton Eye-Trunk iPhone cases are definitely the kind of opulence you can bless yourself with. But why “Eye-Trunk”?

Caviar Honors Putin With The Russia President-Themed Nokia 3310. Really?

Caviar is an exquisite delicacy consisting of salt-cured fish eggs which is renowned throughout the world, but unbeknownst to many outside of Russia, there’s another Caviar that is equally exquisite, if not more, and it isn’t edible. Caviar, or Caviar Phone to be more precise, is as the food it is named after, as exquisite as it sounds and as you might have already guessed, this company luxe up gadgets for a living like what Goldgenie and the likes are doing. But this Russia-based luxe company isn’t content with just dishing out gold-embellished gadgets; it themed them with famous figureheads, such as a gold Trump-themed iPhone 7 (very fitting, I must say), but that device is pale in comparison to the company’s latest offerings: a Putin-themed, wait for it… Nokia 3310!

Balenciaga’s Interpretation Of Iconic Red-White-Blue Bag Cost A Cool $2,000

You know those cheaply made (and cheap) red-white-blue nylon carrying bags commonly used in Asia, particularly in Hong Kong and China? Those bags are really, really cheap. At least one airport that we know of has these bags stashed, ready for checking passengers who have overweight or oversized baggages to repack into. Seriously, I have personally used that before and I am not even kidding. They are totally delicate and absolutely cannot take any beating. While we may view it as cheap, this iconic carrier is actually the design inspiration behind France-headquartered European fashion house, Balenciaga’s Cabas shopper, as dreamed up by creative director, Georgia-born fashion designer Demna Gvasalia.
