    She fit very well with the aesthetic though...

    Yah she looked amazing at their last presentation.

    She did look good but I think Michelle Williams with short hair the previous year was better.

    Interesting. I almost feel a bit of smugness about it - given the idiotically high and greedy prices they charged. Also, those color palettes were sometimes a bit unfortunate. Ketchup and mustard? Please. For that matter, I hope much more of the high end fashion market feels some pinching. A.P.C. should be next on that list for their stupidly high margins on very pretty but overpriced clothes cutting into an ability to sell volume.

    Apc's denim should help to keep them afloat for a while.

    Obedient Sons and potentially Band of Outsiders. That's unfortunate.

    If they're greedy and overcharging wouldn't that mean they have a lot of money from overcharging people? And if they have a lot of money wouldn't that mean they wouldn't be going under right now? Is your idea of how buisness works like a scene where the BoO dude was just laughing holding a big sack with a dollar sign on it full of money and then he tried to put too much money in it and his own greed came back to haunt him when the buttons on his moneybag fell off and it all spilled out and he went "Damn I Guess I Learned My Lesson."

    +1 for Michelle Williams

    Kirsten Dunst looked like a clown in those videos though.

    I think he's implying that the high prices caused people to not buy very often. Then again, if more people bought, prices may have come down, etc.

    Yeah thats all a valid point I just felt the dude was bein a jerk mocking the dead and all too often people complain about the price of clothing without really knowing how much it costs to run a fashion line but more importantly I needed an excuse to make my moneybags joke

    But if demand were higher the price would rise, that is my take on supply/demand anyhow.

    Is there any sort of factual information behind this rumor?

    not that I disagere with the posters here about overpricing, but there are a lot of brands more overpriced than APC or BoO (not that I can afford those two either...)
