$295 replica for $10mn brassiere
Victoria's Secret is selling a replica of the $10 million Royal Fantasy brassiere. This is the first time that the luxury lingerie brand has attempted to create an affordable version from their fantasy collection.
The jewel-encrusted piece, worn by model Candice Swanepoel at the lingerie retailer's annual fashion show in October, costs $10 million, but a similar design is now available for shoppers for a more affordable $295.
The skimpy piece, designed by jeweller Mouawad, featured precious gems such as diamonds, yellow sapphires and a 52-carat ruby that hung from the centre, but the retail version has been simplified and is simply embellished with rhinestones.
For women wondering what to wear with the glittery push-up bra, the brand has also created a pair of jewelled knickers to match, at a cost of $58, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
However, there are just 1,000 replicas that have been produced for the limited edition collection.
