The Emperor’s New… Burberry Prorsum patent leather trimmed cape

 

Well, it’s defininitley cute, we’ll give it that. And probably quite practical, especially taking into consideration the amount of rain we’ve had here at Fashion Police HQ over the last couple of weeks.

Is it £795 / $1315 worth of cute and practical, though?

Oh, hell to the no! Or not for those of us on a police officer’s salary, anyway, because we’re pretty sure that if we give it a few weeks, we’ll be able to pick up something similar at Topshop/H&M/insert other retailer anyway.

What about you, though? Would you pay £1315 for a plastic cape, even if it DOES have the Burberry Prorsum label attached to it?

    That’s a stupid price, I’m sure someone would happily pay it but not me (not that I could afford it anyway)

    If it came with a lifetime warranty— if it rips, tears, warps, etc you get a new one with free shipping. FOR EVER. That’s worth $1000 for me. But Burberry doesn’t do that, so HELL NO
