This is officially the most extravagant item of clothing I have ever tried on. Designed exclusively for Harrods, the one-of-a-kind trophy jacket showcases Balmain’s signature military style and attention to detail. Crafted in Balmain's French workshop, the leather-panelled design is intricately textured with a marbled effect and layered like a coat of armour, while opulent gold piping and wooden beading have been hand-embroidered by master craftsmen in India. Taking over 1,000 hours to complete, this jacket retails for £16,000. Yes, you read it right! How does it feel to try on the jacket? It felt majestic. It really is a work of art, having had the chance to study it in close detail. I wonder if I will ever see this gorgeous trophy piece on the red carpet.
