Lately, Vogue seems increasingly keen to play the high/ low game: The last slew of Index pages boasted nothing over $100; Jessica Stam was shot in the Proenza for Target coat; Kate Moss will no doubt hock TopShop in the June issue. Now Men's Vogue gets into the game with a single item: the ToyWatch with a luxe face but a fabric band that was in Barney's for maybe two seconds. It cost $250 and completely sold out. This week, the magazine put five more of the watches on eBay; each day, one of the watches gets auctioned, with all proceeds going to the UN's fund for refugee youth. There are three watches left to sell. Today's ToyWatch was once just a Barney's bound gadget, but now it's fetched $2000 for charity - high/low indeed!
