Is Donna Karan still based out of New York... or The Universe? The designer seems unaware of the epic financial crisis going down right now, as she just released her new $595 jeans into the marketplace. They allegedly boast a bias-cut (aka no side seams) and are available in boutiques and department stores right now should you be wondering where to spend that money reserved for your next six unlimited Metrocards. She told the NY Post, "I went into business in the first place in order to create jeans that I couldn't find for myself. Now I'm craving a more decadent, sexy and iconic pair of jeans." The paper calls her design "the Holy Grail of jeans—body-conscious, ultra-slimming and classically cut." Is the new recession busting tactic to target self-conscious women? Will realtors soon be jacking up rents for apartments that have flattering lighting and skinny mirrors?
