Oh, fashion, sometimes you are so ridiculously opulent, but we love it at Pout Perfection, because if you were not, we wouldn’t have much to talk about. Dior, has created a line of temporary tattos made of 24 carat gold, in case if you have a bunch of cash lying around, after your $250k manicure and after buying the most expensive dress in the world, you have run out of things to sniff with it.
Dior jewellery designer, Camille Micelli, the French fashion house took the temporary tattoo trend (may I add, which I thought died out in the 90s, sometime before puberty hit…) and gave it a touch of elegance. That’s right…
why wear gold jewellery when you can put gold directly on your skin in the shape of a ring or bracelet??
Retailing for $120 a set (rougly R960), the DIOR GRAND BAL GOLDEN TATTOO set included temporary tattoos made from 24 carat gold in the shapes of bracelets, charms and rings. Comparatively getting a real tattoo may be a little more expensive but is it made of gold? No. In that case, just be sure not to shower for a while to extend the shelf life of these golden temporary tattoos. Or for a more dramatic look melt them down and paint yourself gold.
Speaking of ridiculously opulent designer items, would you spend $290 (roughly R2,320) on a paper bag? Well, what if it was designed by Jil Sander?
I’m not even joking. Jil Sander is selling a paper bag that retails for a whopping $290 (roughly R2,320). I’m pretty sure that even if I bought 1,000 average paper bags and foiled them with 24 carat gold, that they still wouldn’t be worth the ridiculous asking price Jill Sander is expecting.
From her Fall 2012 Autumn/Winter Collection, Jill Sander has released the medium Vasari bag in brown (what other colour, really, it’s a fucking paper bag). According to the product description, that bag has “a long rectangular silhouette and is crafted from coated paper, features the words `Jill Sanders` printed in black at the bottom of the front pane;” and has “visible brown stiched seams at each side with two gold coloured metal eyelets at the bottom“.
APPARENTLY, some people have run out of places to spend their money because the Vasari bag is currently sold out. So someone have one of those rich bastards pick me up a lunchtime snack immediately! With extra foie gras and caviar, please. Oh, do not forget the lobster.
There is a recession, they said…. WHAT FUCKING RECESSION??
