Italian luxury brand Bottega Veneta is getting trolled for an exorbitantly priced fashion accessory. The luxury brand recently launched a telephone cord necklace that bears striking resemblance to our good old landline cord, and netizens are having a field day.
The necklace grabbed headlines when Diet Prada, a popular Instagram page, brought the product to light. Tagged USD 2,000 (Rs 1,45,189 approx), the necklace comes with matching earrings.
Captioning the photo as “Bottega is the new Vetements,” Diet Prada compared the Bottega accessory with the regular coiled telephone cords which are available for USD 5 (Rs 362) to show the unbelievable price difference.
Nonetheless, netizens have called out the luxury brand for the fashion fad. Check some reactions below:
