Internet stunned by $8,700 designer garden tools
French fashion Dior recently announced plans to release a luxury gardening kit – and the internet is freaking out over its insanely high price tag.
Designed by Dior Artistic Director Kim Jones, the Dior Gardening Kit includes a folding leather seat with hand rake and shovel accented with calfskin handles. The shape of the kit resembles the brand’s signature saddle bag and is a tribute to Christian Dior’s love of gardening.
At present, the designer gardening kit is exclusive to a few countries in Europe, such as the UK and Spain. The Dior UK website states that customers can only purchase the kit in-store and must complete an online form to book an appointment with a store.
The exorbitant price of the gardening kit amuses Internet users around the world.
“How** does a gardening kit cost more than my car?” a instagram User commented on HYPEBEAST’s original post.
“The metal better be mined from f***** Pandora,” someone else wrote.
Others have taken Twitter to discuss the set of expensive gardening tools.
In the video, @emasago explains that the gardening kit is primarily a combination of previous garden tools that Dior has released. The brand also previously launched gardening gloves, planters and an apron.
“I’ve seen Dior’s other gardening tools and accessories, and these are $300-$500. And honestly, that’s really steep in comparison,” @emasago said. “I’m curious if someone in the tax bracket who is able to afford it actually enjoys gardening as a hobby.”
