Capsule Paris: The $1,400 Jean

January 24, 2010 BY CAPSULESNEWS

While television pundits have been constantly barraging the airwaves with prognostications of impending economic doom, some designers have decided to buck the penny-pinching by way of ultra-lux extravagance. Montreal's Naked and Famous Denim have created twelve pairs of 100% cashmere denim. According to designer Brandon Svaroc, four pairs have sold at Barney's and a couple more at Holt Renfrew in the three weeks they've been on the floor. The brand only has enough material for one more pair, so cash in your piggy bank with haste.
