    Default Now, if this is only true!

    This is copied from another fashion blog:

    The WSJ has put up an interesting story today, “luxury-goods makers are cutting prices on designer apparel, shoes and handbags in the US market. The cuts range from 8% to 10% on most products sold in the US.” Never have I thought that Chanel, Versace, Christian Louboutin and Chloé would slash their prices because all I hear is prices are increasing at least once a year despite of how poorly our economy is. This is great news, any little bit counts when bags are souring to $3000 a piece and shoes are over $800 a pair.

    The move to cut prices began with Chanel last month. The French fashion house, known for tweed suits that can cost $8,000, decided to trim its prices by 7% to 10% on most items that are hitting U.S. stores now. “The dollar’s recent strength has allowed us to pass on greater value to our customers,” says John Galantic, the company’s U.S. president.

    Perhaps when there is a price increase, it is a lower price increase in the US and a higher price increase in other countries. Cause I know that there haven't been any price decreases. LOL!

    Yeah I don't see any price reductions happening... I imagine job cuts, coming out with cheaper lines, etc before they would lower prices.

    If anything I see retailers providing incentives to buy (either through markdowns or EGCs), but not the actual manufacturers? Chanel has been steadily raising prices (at least on bags - I don't look at their clothes) for the last several years!
