Daylight Robbery: Balenciaga’s £500 furry mittens


Now, if only these came in black, they’d be the ideal companion piece to the Tibetan goat boots we showed you earlier, don’t you think? No? But…but… don’t you WANT to look like you have a hairy ape body underneath your clothes? Oh.

These are by Balenciaga, and that’s the only reason we can think of for the £515 / $852 price tag. We’re not saying it’s a GOOD reason, but if you do feel like dropping £500 on some furry mittens, you can buy these ones at Browns.

    I think they’re kinda cute. I’d wear them if they were £5 instead of 500 🙂

    If I was Mousy I’d provide an illustration on how they resemble Dougal from the Magic Roundabout…

    Nah, not for me. Everyone would think that I’d snatched Donald Trump bald for good and all and was wearing his toupee on my hands like a trophy.
