Balmain Slashed Army T-Shirt $1625 Seriously??!!

65937 fr dl 360x540 Balmain Slashed Army T Shirt $1625 Seriously??!!

In high fashion,  this  snobette  usually can justify  a certain price tag as it relates to quality, craftmanship  or even  prestige . However when a simple cotton t-shirt with random cut holes is priced at $1625, I have to publicly disagree . Unless of course there  was only one tee  in the world and it was cut up by Pierre Balmain himself.  Something that would never happen since the house was originally a symbol of couture and classic  refinement .  Descarnin’s new spin  on  the label has received well deserved praise since he took design lead in 2005, but this  is one I think the House of Balmain  can live without.  I love  a ripped tee but , but  can you really  justify the price ? I’d love to know the markup on that one… Via net-a-porter. Detailed view on the next page.
