This made me Laugh-Quote of the week

(Picture:Peoples Daily)

Versace will not pander to the recession by lowering its prices or offering dramatic sale discounts, the label's ceo said in an interview with Italian daily Il Sole 24 Ore yesterday.

"Our regular client was not queuing on January 3-4 in Milan or Rome but was on the slopes in St Moritz or on a boat in the Caribbean," he said. "We want to offer a real luxury and not to open our doors to the consumption of young girls who can put the designer handbag of their dreams on their arm with less than 300 Euros. We are not interested in that."

I don't think my eye could roll any further--they'd fall out of my head.

Hahaha- I love the quote and the photo for their impracticality. I think Versace will eat their words pretty soon.

Anny said...

I had to laugh too! Its such a haughty, let them eat cake statement :)

Sal said...

Yikes! Harsh words.

Skye said...

Well Versace is just so incredibly classy, isn't it!

Siljesfashion said...

Haha, I agree, they will eat their words when they experience the recession!

What a thing to say. Hilarious. We shall see if they survive this storm because everyone will be affected before it's all over.

Lil Midget said...

ROFL!
I don't know how Versace will survive the recession then.

It's a bit 'let them eat cake' isn't it?! I don't think this will be well recieved by anyone, even fashion is becoming open to humility and austere. Someone needs to tell Donatella that, she clearly missed the memo!

Jaimie said...

what a jerky statement. it really should have been worded better.

fashion herald said...

Versace CEO, boo! certainly he could have said this better.
I love the accompanying photo!

WendyB said...

I hope I can steal some of their rich clients for myself!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi everyone-thanks for the great comments!!

Cal said...

Snobs! And just for the record, I couldn't afford their stuff even if it was around 300 Euros! What does that make me? Hmm... :)

Sharon Rose said...

Hi Cal-aren't they, I'm with you too!

The Seeker said...
