It seems fashionistas are continuing to laugh in the face of the recession: this military style denim jacket by Balmain apparently sold out within minutes of hitting the Net-a-Porter website this week – even although it was being sold for the not-so-bargain price of £2,920 / $4,220.
We like the style of the jacket, if not the bleached denim, which we think will date very quickly (and if we're paying $4,000 for a jacket, we're not going to want it to date AT ALL, ever), and clearly Balmain is enjoying a spate of huge popularity at the moment, but what do you think of it? Worth the money? Something you'd wear? Tell us!
