The Hermès $150,000 Peacoat!!
Hermès men’s designer Véronique Nichanian designed the crocodile coat, which will appear at the Fall/Winter 2008-2009 collection.
There are currently two navy blue coats at the flagship store on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Other coats may be special ordered for a finished product that will arrive in 3-4 months.
I can't see myself ever spending this much on a coat... However, I must say that this might be the only piece that would definitely get mad love from every end of the fashionably conscious and unconscious spectrum... No doubt designers, early-adopters and fashion mavens would love it, but even the old school playa from church who rocks his red gator Stacey Adams and rainbow Coogi sweater would have to bow down.... Gata baby!!
"Look at this peacoat, tell me he's broke!"
