Meadham and the Masses

Meadham Kirchhoff is not one of those mainstream brands that people instantly fall in love with..  I think you need to appreciate the mix and un-match of their fabrics, the color clashing, and the small details in their designs before you instantly judge the brand.  I personally liked their S/S 2011 runway show and was actually looking forward to the brand's collaboration with Topshop. However, when the collection hit Topshop boutique I was surprised by the pieces. Why? Well, for starters, throwing KD 135 on a Meadham Kirchhoff for Topshop tunic top terrified me!! Isn't the whole purpose of having a high street/high end collaberation is to make the designer pieces more affordable and accessible to the masses? I liked the top featured in the first photo (yes I did! the torn details and all, this is probably one of my fashion faux pas moments) but I wouldn't pay THAT much for it.  I'd like to know your thoughts on this?

The max any one must pay in a high st fashion store is 70 kd. Anything above that is redicilous .and the piece should be worth the 70 kd as well. Like the one u shown I would say it should cost around 23 to 29 kd. How would u wear it u got it? I'm interested in knowing

Me too! I though the price was s tad too high for a topshop tunic, regardless of the collaboration

I don't care what the brand name is, you can buy this tunic (a similar design I mean) from any cheap store like Max and tear holes here and there and make it look the same.
Some designers just think most shoppers are stupid and would go with any trend regardless of the price or quality just as long as the name is there...

I think it would look good paired with washed out jeans. But the pricing is waaay too high for it.
