If you didn’t know, Louis Vuitton has been doing amazingly well in this recession, kicking its competitor’s ass. But is there a reason they are doing so well? Marc Jacobs, creative director of Louis Vuitton, believes so:
“Obviously there are a lot of people suffering out there, but our sales are up and I haven’t noticed that people’s tastes have got more subdued. They may be buying less, but if anything, they want it to be even more special. There’s this huge cult following of almost crazy people at Vuitton who just want whatever they buy to be exclusive.”LOL, MJ is funny. But I do kind of agree. Once you get a Louis, it does become your BFF and you officially join the cult of oxidized leather and speedy’s you’ll see everyone else carrying.
