Why do these jeans by Roberto Cavalli cost $5,770?
Two words: Allover applique. (I know, ‘all over’ is usually two words but not in the description by Moda Operandi, one of my favorite fashion websites.)
Medium wash, 98 per cent cotton, 2 per cent elastane. Shit allover the place. Dry clean only.
I’m sure that plenty of time and effort were involved in producing these jeans but I have so many problems with them!
The 60’s are over, for starters.
And really, what message are you sending when you wear this? Are people supposed to think you sewed on the patches yourself? That you “found” the jeans in a thrift store? That they were once your mom’s and she wore them to Woodstock?
Or that you’re an imbecile who would spend nearly 6 thousand bucks for a pair of jeans?
Maybe they’re for Cher. Some woman in Neiman Marcus once confided to me that Roberto Cavalli is one of Cher’s favorite brands. This was like 100 years ago but I’m still offended that she thought this was a selling point.
Anyway, ew. Make them go away!
