Saint Laurent vs ASOS

People were shocked to discover that Saint Laurent had priced this 90s-inspired floral baby-doll dress with a Peter-Pan collar, black bow and puffed sleeves at a staggering $68,000 – especially considering that a Chanel Couture piece starts at $30,000.

Why is it so expensive? It has a lot to do with the embellishments. Quite what those embellishments consist of has not been disclosed. Rare materials from the bottom of the Blue Lagoon, perhaps.

If you haven’t got $68,000, consider this flirty ASOS frock instead, which seems to be inspired by the expensive Fall 2013 dress.

Shop the ASOS dress from ASOS US, ASOS UK and ASOS International.
