H&M for the rich

Louis Vuitton, Chanel, D&G, what have you – has anyone ever bothered to take a good look at these things in a shop (meaning, detached from the gorgeous bodies of models)? Frankly, very often you’ll find that qua design as well as qua material these clothes are of inferior quality. They are nothing more H&M for the rich. Everybody still looks the same, and what’s even better: nobody has to think. Here’s just one example. At the opening of the new Louis Vuitton shop in London a lot of celebrities were present – as is usual the case at that sort of ‘event’. What struck me is that three of those celebrities wore the same shoes with oversized bows, only in different colors. And that was only the ones deemed famous enough to publish their photograph. (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-1281406/Louis-Vuitton-Maison-launch-Gwyneth-Paltrow-belle-ball-new-hair-daring-keyhole-dress.html) This really is no different to me than the hoards of teenagers that all dress in H&M and the like. They all basically wear the same type of clothes as if they were wearing uniforms.
