Italian luxury fashion house Gucci debuted its new overalls that are “crafted from organic cotton and specifically treated for a stained-like, distressed effect” for a whopping $1,400 (Rs 1,02,876).
Gucci's similar pair of jeans priced at $1,200 (Rs 88,179) are part of the brand’s fall/winter 2020 collection.
Explaining its bizarre collection, the fashion website said, "Gucci explores new takes on the cult fabric, reinterpreting it with different designs and washing techniques that blur the line between vintage and contemporary."
This, however, did not sit well with Twitterati who went on bashing Gucci for overpricing something that looks this worn out.Check out a few reactions here:
Or buy $30 jeans and go roll around outside

Outrage marketing again. Usually it's something racist though

Gucci selling grass stained jeans for £600. They weren't Gucci but as a kid playing Football with mates I had many pairs of trousers that looked like that, at a fraction of the price. pic.twitter.com/CT012r5N86
