Retail price and Balenciaga in Hong Kong

Remember these 2 items in my wishlist? Well...i saw the boots in Hong Kong. Apparently, this pair of boots is brought forward to the Winter collection and it was not on sale during the end of season sale. I guess the reason is simple...the PRICE! The price of the boots is HKD7300 which is about USD900++...I seriously think that the price is too much. Anyway, the shape is really good...the best that i have ever seen.

As for the bag, i couldn't find it as the only Balenciaga store in Hong Kong is closed. Don't bother making a trip there. The rumour that i've heard is that the store is not making money thus the closure...Go to Joyce if you need any Balenciaga...

You know, I think that Hedi leaving the fashion scene was actually a really good thing. I don't know about you, but I had become too reliant on Dior. Now that he is gone, I have rediscovered other brands like Lanvin and Burberry Prorsum. My personal aesthetic has evolved now and is not as tied to Dior as it used to be.

Good and bad i think...for me, i have started moving to other brands ever since AW07...I really like Burberry Prorsum, i think Bailey is doing a good job...unfortunately, i can't really afford it as it is more expensive than DH...haha

I read your last blog entry about the burberry bags being more expensive in HK. I live right next to a Burberry flagship store in the U.S. I could ask for those bags and let you know the price. I could also go there during sales and see if they are available for less.

monsieur AG said...

Great! Please help me ask for the prices...appreciated! From what i know, no one really buy Prorsum until the sales period as it is really expensive...

I'll ask as soon as I have a chance. Prorsum is pretty expensive, but it is really excellent quality. I just bought a jacket from the current collection and I was pleasantly surprised by the quality. The jacket came with functioning button holes.

monsieur AG said...

Yes...indeed the quality is good...if my survey is not wrong, Prorsum is currently the most expensive menswear...

I think you are right. At first I thought it would be Lanvin, but the standout pieces are not quite as pricey as Prorsum. I saw a 5,000 dollar feather sweater for prorsum. Maybe Tom Ford is more expensive, but that is not runway fashion.

monsieur AG said...

come on, Tom Ford is for old man...i have never appreciate his design...Prorsum is good...i am curious about the next season already

ado rimbo said...

haha you are right about Tom Ford. I've never liked him either, but technically he is probably more expensive than Prorsum, but that doesn't mean the best. I'm really liking Prorsum this fall. Can't wait to see what Bailey does next.

monsieur AG said...

I am not sure about the prices of Tom Ford since i have never liked his design. Let's hope Bailey does a good job at the next season

I was told that a Tom Ford suit goes for 5,000 to 8,000 dollars and that some croc shoes he carries go for 13,000.

wow! thats crazy!

luckily, i don't like Tom Ford
