    Default Another interesting article...

    What stood out the most in this article was this:

    "It still needs to wean itself from Japanese customers, who account for an estimated 55% of sales. Vuitton must build sales in the U.S. while tapping into rising affluence in China and India."

    Japanese customers account for 55% of all LV purchases??? Amazing. But probably not anymore with the Japanese recession....

    I can see that... in Southern California more Asian women carry LVs than anyone else, I think it's just their favorite brand. Or, they can afford them more than the rest of us.

    Reading about the Robots was cool --
    I think most American's in this economy cannot afford the real LV's and buy the FAKE ones instead. I am sooo tired of seeing fakes everywhere from the movie theater , to the gym , to the casino etc. etc.

    I'm not too surprised about the Japanese consumer accounting for at least 55% of LV purchases. I watch an HGTV program, House Hunter's International, where people are shopping for homes in various countries. I tend to notice the handbags being carried by the women who happen to be in the scene. Lots of LV on the arms of women walking past the tv camera.

    That article is from 2004 so that could make a difference.
    If love is the answer, what is the question?
