Uncanny

Here’s a flat from Steve Madden, named “Pavement”, and priced at $70 (less 30% at the moment):

And here is “Candbury” by Chloé, originally 465 of the US dollars but down to $232.50 at Net-a-Porter:

I like this sort of thing because it’s very easy to take a Fred Mertz view of the runways: that high fashion is ridiculous and outrageously priced and irrelevant. And although I wouldn’t argue with the first two, the fact is that what is available for us more humble consumers to buy is very often influenced by the runways. Sometimes, it’s a little more than influence, but I won’t tell if you don’t.
