Daylight Robbery: Balmain’s £532 belt


OK, so it's a nice enough belt. We have no issues with the design. But… that design? We're sure we've seen it somewhere before. Like, lots of times before. In high street chains, designer boutiques… What we're trying to say here is that it's hardly a groundbreakingly original concept, is it? And we're pretty sure the metal parts aren't platinum.

Why, then, does it cost almost $900?

Oh yeah: so that Balmain can commit Daylight Robbery. Unless you can think of another reason?
