Why is Watercolour so Expensive?

Hi,

I went to LV showroom to get some new colourful bag and the salesperson showed me a watercolour papilon (or something that looks like papilon). The price is 5000 AUD which is like 4500 USD. I am stunned ! It is just basically a canvas papilon and the hardware is even made of plastic. So why is it so expensive then ? Is it just because it is limited edition ? This kind of pricing policy sucks ! It made it harder for me to collect the LEs.

Anyways, I decided on something else and will post the pics soon !

they do have the vvn papillon. maybe thats the one u saw and were quoted the price of the exotic? but plastic hardware? I have never seen that. and like chinchin_lim said, its a LE, so im sure they can charge whatever they want.
 
Because:-

1 the trim is snake skin
2 it's limited in production
3 it's a complex printing techinque
4 the hardwear is covered with plastic but not actually plastic
5 it's an artist collaboration
6 it's the key collection from Spring summer

I could go on but I think it's covered

I see it this way. I just didn't buy a bag, I bought a piece of artwork that I would enjoy for years to come. That alone for me raised the bar.

Any bag has to be worth it to YOU. When you break it down to individual parts even a birkin is just leather. I bought the exotic watercolor because I fell in LOVE with it and think it's a STUNNER that I will continue to use.

I read somewhere in this forum that it has 18 colour silkscreen process similar to the multi-colour bags..plus with all the leather additions and it is limited etc etc...probably that makes the price high ;)
