Luxury online retailer Net-a-Porter.com is preparing to sell its most expensive ever item – a dress with a pricetag of £32,000. Six of the embellished red dresses by Italian label Dolce & Gabanna have been ordered by Net-a-Porter‘s buyers – and the online boutique is confident that all will sell.
“If we have women in mind for a particular piece then we will go for it and with conviction too.
This Dolce & Gabbana dress has been produced in limited quantities and we have bought half of the world’s stock,” says Ben Matthews, Net-a-Porter’s buying manager.
The Dolce & Gabbana piece has a heavily embellished surface decoration which contrasts with its discreet silhouette. The round necked, knee-length shift dress with three-quarter length sleeves has a timeless “first lady” feel about it.
Dolce & Gabbana will showcase a small collection of couture clothing for the first time July 9, following in the footsteps of fellow Italian houses to embrace the higher end of the market such as Armani and Versace.
Following recent rumors on the matter, the label confirmed June 27 that it will present its couture creations to a small group of clients next month in Taormina, Sicily. Continue reading →
