Weigh what you buy, buy what you weigh. Or change your mind… and weigh again. No we’re not talking about apples.
From now till January next year, KILO FASCION ASIA POP-UP BOUTIQUE takes the commonplace concept of weighing your purchase into the world of high fashion and luxury brands. Subtract the original commercial price, minus the itsy-bitsy bits, and you pay for a piece of garment for exactly how heavy it is.
Talk about all’s fair in love and… wear? Couture Troopers gives you first dibs on how the system works!
Here you have a pair of Karl Lagerfeld leather shorts that originally costs $354.00.

So what’re the pros and cons of this system? The pros is that for fashionistas out there who are huge lovers of luxury brands, this is a treat of the fashion world: a fair and genuine system that grants consumers greater control over their purchases. Ever wanted a Valentino but couldn’t afford to? Now’s your chance!
As for the cons? Honestly, try and think of any ‘cos we are completely sold.
