Daylight Robbery? Carine Gilson silk-satin and lace camisole and shorts

Let’s be clear about one thing here: these are gorgeous. Well, they are, aren’t they? They’re beautiful and luxurious, and exactly the kind of thing we’d like to have tucked away in our lingerie drawer for a special occasion. It would have to be a VERY special occasion, though, because these cost £739 / $1,195 for the set, and if we ever find ourselves handing over $1000 for a camisole and a pair of shorts, well, we hope someone will do us the kindness of taking our credit cards from us and refusing to return them until we appear to have come to our senses.

What about you, though, oh readers? Would you spend this much money on something like this, or do you feel it’s a clear-cut case of Daylight Robbery?

(Oh, and if the answer to that question was “Absolutely not!”, you can buy them both at Net-a-Porter.)

    That’s over $3200 dollars in my currency. uh yeah when you have to consider taking out a loan to purchase undergarments that’s a bit much.

    i wouldnt say thats worth the price it is, considering you could run down to victorias secrets or fredericks and find something similar for much cheaper..

    The amount of time and workmanship which goes these items is incredible. Not to mention the finest silk lace and silk satins used. I believe each little piece of lace is sewn onto the silk by a person trained in their craft using a special machine, not some child in a third world country paid a dollar a day for their work. These are obviously special items for people who appreciate luxury and with the means to acquire it. Not for everybody but to say it’s daylight robbery is insulting the designer and the complicated processes to create this.
