£1000 Boots and £2250 Bags: How Much Coachella Outfits Cost

Latest news

    To most of us a VIP wristband is the most luxurious accessory we could imagine wearing at a festival, however the word ‘luxury’ at Coachella doesn’t mean hot showers and a flushing toilet. Coachella might not have the uncontrollable mud and flying pints of cider that define British music festivals, but even so the sheer number of designer handbags at the festival this weekend was quite staggering.

    In 2016 Lyst revealed to The Telegraph that the average UK Glastonbury shopper spends £165 on festival items — however that would only stretch to one pair of sunglasses for Coachella’s fashion crowd who attend armed with as many outfit changes as Beyoncé had for her set.Aimee Song went to the site in a pair of £1000 Chloe Rylee boots and a £2,200 Chanel plastic bag. Caro Daur wore an array of Dior handbags; Emily Ratajkowski carried a Prada raffia bag and Kate Bosworth wore crystal-encrusted Jimmy Choos. You can spot as many cult fashion buys here as you can at fashion month, and practicality isn’t even a slight consideration. Keep scrolling to see some of the cult items we spotted in the Coachella site this weekend.

    On Emily: LPA Dress (£127) and Prada Bag (£1990). Total coast = £2117. 

    Emily Ratajkowski wore a raffia and leather Prada bag (a similar version is £1990) with an £127 white dress with buttons down the front by LPA

    On Aimee: Chloe Rylee Snake-Effect Leather Ankle Boots (£1095)

    This season’s cult boots are Chloé’s Rylees, and Aimee Song wore a pair of multi-colour snake-effect boots over the weekend. Wearing a £1000 pair of boots to a dusty field is about as impractical as it gets.

    At festivals most of us hide our money in secret pockets, or pick a handbag that won’t get ruined and is thief-proof — however at Coachella this weekend Aimee Song wore a £2000 see-through plastic Chanel handbag that showed all of her contents inside. 

    On Caro: Dior Saddlebag.

    Caroline Daur didn’t just take one Dior bag with her to the desert, she posted pictures wearing three Dior handbags on her Instagram and one Balenciaga belt bag. That means her handbag wardrobe alone totalled £5,000.
