Would You Drop $990 USD on Vetements' Teddy Bear Slippers?

A spendy take on a childhood classic.

Vetements has built its entire brand identity around a satirical approach to fashion and consumer spending habits but its latest drop is taking the tongue-in-cheek appeal to a whole new level. Demna Gvasalia has recreated a classic childhood piece – fluffy teddy bear slippers and reworked it in plush materials, resulting in a pretty hefty price tag.

The Hug Me Bear slippers bring to mind the cozy, novelty slippers that were big in the ’90s and therefore everyone probably was gifted a pair in the shape of some character or another on occasions like Christmas. This luxe rendition is made in Italy from a cotton, alpaca and mohair blend. Resembling a classic, tan-colored bear, the arms and legs feature Velcro® tabs so you can move and secure the positioning of the bear’s limbs as you desire. Rounding out the look is a rubber sole and a simple black tab with white Vetements text branding on the lateral side.

You can cop these nostalgic slippers at retailers like Net-A-Porter for a whopping $990 USD – far more than what the more mainstream iterations cost. In related news, have you seen Vetements’ “Happy Birthday” dress set?
