£6560 ($11,410) for a jacket? That’s how much Balmain’s (Michael Jackson inspired) crystal â€œIT jacket of the year will set you back. It is a beautiful jacket. But, I think not.

Let’s face it, online shopping affords us the luxury of inconspicuous consumption which enables us to do things like spend £6560 on a jacket.
