FF Thought #6

This must be the most honest designer item I've bought. It's a Marc by Mark Jacobs souvenir pendant from his Paris store, priced at 15 euros, featuring a brand tag. I can almost hear him say: "you want something cheap with my name on it? I can give you something cheap with my name on it". No precious stones, no knock-off.

ha, you make him sound so nice! i'd like to think that he's as thoughtful as that, for us poor people! :p

@Chloe - This post is labelled as "food for thought" so by no means am I saying he is nice and thoughtful.

Obsiously he's selling us whatever we are willing to buy at any price we can afford so that we don't go buying knock-offs and he doesn't have to jump on the highstreet store collaboration bandwagon.

Nice, clever, bad, I'm not sure. All I know is it's honest: cheap designer item at a cheap highstreet price;)
