The Cost Of Kate

As someone who has frequently purchased Balenciaga over the last decade or so, I’ve seen the price quietly rise season after season but as a loyal customer I’ve never questioned it. While I’m still not thrilled at the thought of having to fork out a £1000 or more for a Balenciaga bag, I don’t mind if it means it’s going towards the paycheque of Kate Moss who today was announced alongside Lara Stone as the face of the iconic French brand. Shot by Steven Klein, the beautiful campaign evokes a real sense of sensuality and mystery, a rare feat for someone who has been in the public eye for so long and so often. But then that is probably part of the appeal (and subsequential cost) of Kate, her allure never seems to fade.
