Christian Dior Niki de Saint Phalle Iconic Romper That Took 86 Hours To Make I 38 UK 6 US 2 XS

From the Spring 2018 Limited Collection by Niki de Saint Phalle. Dior presented a slew of what the French fashion house's premiere female artistic director Maria Grazia Chiuri might deem essentials of the nouveau feminist's wardrobe: denim, workwear, and more. But there's one look that's worthy of its own headline, even a month or so after the fact: a knitted romper that took 86 hours to make.That's right. It's possible that your go-to bodysuit, once the easiest piece in your closet, was just made complicated; all in the name of fashion, of course. Inspired by the work of feminist artist Niki de Saint Phalle

the knitted one-piece was composed of 27 motifs (see: a dinosaur, stars, a heart) and took a full week's worth of knitting to pull off. By the numbers, you're looking at 24 hours to design and conceptualize, 86 hours of knitting and embroidering, six people (including five dedicated seamstresses), and a pound or so of wool.

Though it's currently on sale for $7,100, its cost shouldn't change the fact that watching fashion come to life is something of a spectator's sport, and it may change your mind about stomaching sky-high price tags for clothes that double as art.
