Less than a week into Vetements‘ AW16 collection being dropped at Dover Street Market, it’s no surprise the cult brand has already almost sold out.
With many online thinkpieces questioning and dissecting the many potetial reasons for Vetement’s new-found hype, there is no doubt the brand is very much alive and killing it. With pieces dropping in small quantities accompanied by controversial (read: super-expensive) pricing, the sky-high demand is also probably propelled by support from the likes of celebrity giants such as Kanye West, Rihanna, Kylie Jenner, and Selina Gomez.
With prices ranging from $720AUD for a ‘sexual fantasies’ hoodie with simple text to $2800AUD for an embroidered, reversible ‘total fucking darkness’ bomber jacket, the brand continues to upgrade the everyday street style into high fashion. And of course, Dover Street Market, the first to create a Vetements space, has the upper hand in obtaining an exclusive range from the label.
Amongst the stock includes a ‘Justin Forever’ long sleeve, pulling the heart strings of Beiber fanatics, and the now infamouse ‘Snoop’ tee which looks a lot like the bootleg celebrity print tee you sold at the markets last weekend. Both equally great.
If you want to max out your credit card or just URL window shop, you can find the full range here.
