PETA supporters and animal lovers, close your eyes--the new custom $150,000 crocodile Hermès peacoat might induce a heart attack. This awe-inspiring (in all iterations of the word 'awe') coat is made entirely of crocodile skin in an interpretation of a classic in men's attire.
Hermès men's designer Véronique Nichanian designed the coat, which will appear at the Fall/Winter 2008-2009 collection. There are currently two navy blue coats at the flagship store on Manhattan's Upper East Side. Other coats may be special ordered for a finished product that will arrive in 3-4 months.
