    A luxury brands appeal is in it’s limited but high-end consumer base. Brehs are now burning merchandise and thus limiting its quantity and consumption further contributing to the increase in the luxury brands value especially when this demographic was probably looked at as “sullying” the brand’s image amongst their target market. It’s really a non-impacting position that brehs are in. It was better to not have bought and invested into these brands in the first place.

    Let's see how long this last. Not the first time luxury brands have been caught being racist. And yet the most dominant music in the WORLD, which is dominated by black people, continues to peddle luxury brands for free. We've got a society of people who will do anything for even the cheapest Gucci item (a belt, for instance). It's disgusting.

    Black people create the trends in this country. We can't create and market our own clothes? I'm not talking about corny "random picture on a low quality t-shirt" shyt. I'm talking real fashion. There are black brands making very high quality stuff...how come they aren't getting shouted out in music?

    mine too, I have Gucci w/prescription and so does my wife. I also have some Gucci shades. Difference is, I got mine from wholesaler for resell, as opposed to buying retail. So I got all 3 for less than the price of one pair that would be marked up. Wholesalers get em for mad cheap and they get sold in bulk every time the seasons change so new lines come out. Also, Gucci doesnt make shyt off of those really because the glasses/frames are designed and distributed by other companies who also do the same for other designer labels like Botegga Veneta, Christopher Kane, Yves Saint Laurent, Tom Ford etc.....so glasses are an exception. Gucci, LV, Prada, they dont do discounts and sales because they dont have to. If you go in their stores you will see. Even in outlets they dont. I was in Neiman Marcus Outlet and they had 30% off all watches.....excluding Gucci because the retailer gets beat over the head too so they cant take a loss on cost.

    so I wouldnt feel guilty about wearing those breh.

    on another note, its your choice to wear what you want people, just know that Gucci, Prada, etc...dont NEED our (black community) money.
