Just wondering. What draws you to Gucci, LV, Chanel, Prada? Respond as applicable, as long as you'd like.

Twitter responses:
  • Quality of craftsmanship, premium materials, and the general appreciation for luxury. Only subtle designs, though.
  • " I'd do anything to say I got it, damn these new loafers hurt my pocket. " lol.
  • quality hands down and it jus looks nice but me i only like desiner asscories tho
  • LV hated it until i learned the history of the different designs.
  • Gucci just makes quality things to me,though i haven't seen a thing i'd purchase from them at retail.
  • None of the above. Give me Balenciaga from '05, 06 and earlier. yuummmmm -> The leather was divine. Now a days it aint worth the $$$ but I've heard it's gotten better. I speak strictly of handbags tho -> I had an 08 Magenta giant city fade on me. $1200 handbags should not
  • be fading. =/ not that I paid retail but stillnothing.
  • I mess with their shoes, that's it. The sneakerhead in my still likes shoes that are somewhat exclusive

Facebook responses:
  • Authentic originality!! I personally think Chanel is Brilliant!! In both concept and designs.LV's cases command respect and as for Prada, ill do a few of them as well :)
  • The same reasons anyone is drawn to anythingInformational
  • Cascades and Herding
  • I dont buy any of those brands..but I know that a lot of people buy high priced items like that to feel empowered..they have a sense of 'not everyone can buy this, but I can' type
  • When you get to that level of retail and it's pricepoints, people are looking to purchase not only a product but also an experience.
  • Im personally not attracted to those brands either, i mean if i HAD the money to buy them I probably wouldnt . They carry too much of that LOOK at ME attention I dont like. I would rather wear some items that are subtle but recognized by people who appreciate style. . thats why im hooked on polo. Not too flashy but always classic you know? idc if everyone has it but its my shit -> but DONT think im judging anyone that does buy the prada the gucci ya knw ? a few of their things ive seen look nice but to the everyday person .. its eh . Respect it but just ehhh
  • LOL --> welcome to my world, Podge.
  • I like coach because NOT everyone is going to have the same purse like they would at Target. and the style or differents of others
  • .....and I spent 400 bucks on this, just to be like nigga you ain't up on this.......
