Rochas sheer dress: possibly the worst case of Daylight Robbery ever recorded

This dress is £2,590 / $3,878.

CAN SOMEONE PLEASE EXPLAIN THIS TO US? Surely the Emperor isn’t wearing any clothes here?

Wait, though, there’s more. In fact, it would appear Rochas is the most dangerous criminal around when it comes to brazen acts of Daylight Robbery:

overpriced designer dresses

Wow. Just…wow.

While we’re on the subject of Rochas, we’d also like to call them out for this:

knitted fingerless gloves

Now, who doesn’t know someone who could knock up a pair of these in an afternoon? Are there any hands up? Anyone?  If you do happen to have your hand up, all we can say it it sucks to be you, because if you happened to know someone with these, er, mad skillz in the knitting department, they could be making £255 per pair, and they might just cut you in on the profits.

We’re SO in the wrong job, aren’t we?

    Think of all the clothes you could buy for that money..heck, even fabric. You could sew hundreds of (nice) dresses for that price 🙂

    Ugh. They do actually make lovely clothes, or at least used to, but these are sad. I do like the shape of that black shress on the right, but k is right, there are probably quite a few similar patterns.

    Really, I prefer to think how many Dresses of the Day you could buy for the price of one of these.

    Oh no, it suck so be me! 😉 I like those gloves, and would be made up if I knew someone who could make them…
