Was Margiela ever a hustler? Probably only when he sold his company to Diesel. I think SZ-ish designers like Guidi/A1923 appear to be purely creative, but looking at their prices definitely indicates some hustling. 2k shoes is not reasonable in any sense. Maybe Carpe Diem started out with the intent to just produce clothing, but eventually they also started charging ridiculous amounts of money for stuff. I'll still buy it though.
