I love this jacket - the recession is making me want to dress like a crazy 80s pimp!
I was watching a trashy morning news show earlier and a Milan Fahion Week segment quoted one designer as saying that women should apply more imagination to their wardrobes in a time of economic crisis. I suppose this is the garment equivalent of 'putting on a brave face', and judging by the SS and AW 09 collections it appears that recession is also a time for spending your sad, almost-gone pennies on investment and label-signature pieces. Although I don't think my jar of coppers is really going to cut it when thinking about purchasing this Margiela jacket, which is dauntingly 'price upon request'!
