    Not really. The product is still the same usually. I've never been into spending a fortune for a label. I think a good example of what you are talking about is Napoleon Purdis. He has some products in target now. I haven't tried his target stuff, but have used his foundation in the past and it was fantastic. If it becomes more accessible and affordable then great.

    I definitely think it does!

    We don't do designer, but we do sell brand names in our shops,

    Several brands that we have stocked in the past have ended up in 'cheap' department stores at discount prices and in the end we stopped selling them. They ended up on every feral/bogan/insert buzz word for 'that' kind of person, and they people who once wore it didn't want a bar of it anymore.

    Default Designer Brands In Not-So-Designer Shops

    Not at all - many designers have different labels at different price points

    A Roberto Cavalli Jacket is about $3500, ( boutiques) a Just Cavalli Jacket ( the more department store label ) is about $600 and the Cavalli for target jacket I'm assuming would be around $150, all from the same design house but obviously the chain store label would be mass produced and lesser quality materials , Armani, Ralph Lauren, Boss, Calvin Klein, Dolce all do this , it's a great idea to give most people who can't afford a Haute Couture piece a chance to experience their designs

    Chanel does this with fragrances/cosmetics - not many will spend $10,000 on a suit or $5000 on a handbag but $100 to splurge on perfume at least gives you a chance to own something Chanel!

    Default Re: Designer Brands In Not-So-Designer Shops

    I couldn't care less, as to me, clothes are clothes and I don't buy "labels". Just because a certain person made them, doesn't make them better in my opinion.

    Maybe so, simply an observation of something that has happened many times over my 12 years working in our family business. People (who buy things for the brand) don't want the brand to be on what they define as undesirable people. These people are extremely common and my favorite kind of customer, will spend anything to look 'cool'.

    I don't necessarily agree ( I still wear one of these brands because is comfy and I like the clothes!)
