Daylight Robbery: Chloé mongolian lamb coat

Chloe_coatConfession: The Fashion Police don’t actually know very much about Mongolian lambs. Perhaps they’re very rare (although, of course, that would make Chloé’s use of them in this coat even more outrageous). Perhaps they’re very valuable. Perhaps their wool is made from gold. Who knows. Not us, anyway, but we’re really hoping that last suggestion was the correct one, because it’s the only reason we can think of why this coat would cost £8,435.

In dollars: $14,588. Or thereabouts.

Anyone care to explain this one to us?

    Remember that horrible blue/green hairy bag, that I Photoshopped the Cookie Monster onto?
    This coat, I felt, deserved similar treatment: http://i33.tinypic.com/n77g0.jpg

    Oh my god…I could buy a (albeit very used, maybe not up to par with what I generally would want) used car for that. Sorry, no coat is worth it, especially not one that looks like a muppet from Sesame Street died and was skinned.

    “Mongolian/Tibetan Lamb
    The flashiest of furs, mongolian/tibetan lamb is the only long-haired fur that is also curly. It has regained prominence this season with the return of the chubby style, which originated with fox. It is also one of the least expensive furs, at about $500 to $3,000.”

    I love the design but I really can’t find a reason for the price?
    If you really need Mongolian lamb I suggest you go with this:

    it’s an awwsome coat, just brush the wool so it dosn’t look like it came out of a dumpster
    look up the “fashion rocks” with Dhani Harrison & Sasha Pivorova, it looks nice in that picture with them in the grass, because it’s all combed out it looks fuffy and soft
