Sometimes when browsing the web you stumble upon true gems. Items that makes you wonder if your sense of fashion is completely outdated or if the designer went a bit too far to catch your attention and empty your wallet. We would like to hear the desperate sales pitches for these pieces of luxury. One thing is certain – It’s very easy to break your bank account with temptations like these. First we have the $400 hand-embroidered Ralph Lauren polo. It’s supposed to emulate the splash of mustard Kanye gets on his polo in the video for All Falls Down. It’s sold out on the webshop, so apparently the world has enough die hard Kanye fans to make embroidered mustache polos a sought-after product.
Next we have these Mexican-inspired pointed boots from Commes Des Garcons Homme Plus with a price tag of $515 on ssense.com. Wikipedia says that this trend of footwear originated around 2009 in Matehuala, Mexico and rose to popularity in the trance music scene. If you want to learn more about the attention-drawing boots, Vice has a whole documentary about them.
Or what about this “layered, laser-cut leather penis” as described on the shop by avant-garde fashion brand Sruli Recht. Perfect for… we have absolutely no idea what to use this for. But it can be yours for a chill 1400 euros.
You could also spend €1155 on this 7 cm long Rick Owens mammoth bone ‘worry bead’. Worry beads are according to wikipedia “a string of beads manipulated with one or two hands and used to pass time in Greek and Cypriot culture” and you will for sure be able to brag about having the most luxurious string with 8 to 10 of these at your local taverna.
Maison Margiela is one of the most noteworthy brands of all time when it comes to making quality, timeless basics and for €118 you can get the pefect grandpa look that will also keep you on point with the dadbod trend. Available on oki-ni.com.
And if you are really in the mood for spending you could get your hands on the worlds most expensive punching bag designed by Karl Lagerfeld. It comes complete with a storage trunk, a stand, a mat, and boxing gloves and it retails for approximately $175,000. That’s a no-brainer.
