This top goes for $50.000. Yes, 50 K.
Now, what could the 'text' of such a top be?
-The wearer is recession-proof.
-The wearer is not recession-proof but this is her/his effort to laugh in recession's face.
-The wearer needs to have Balenciaga becase, to her/him, Balenciaga is about all the right social codes.
And many other textual reasons.
Obviously, information like this is more than just about post-Fashion Week, the new lines of the year, and how much the prices are. I am also one of those individuals who finds information like this to be about the economics of exclusivity.
Just how much is one willing to buy for exclusivity?
Well, apparently at least 50K.
