Yeah it’s hard to process.I thought the same thing, I’m glad I’m not the only one. Jumpers I treasured that cost a fortune were on the floor with £45 stickers scrawled across them. It was disconcerting, I must say.
I picked up a fair few things and do wish that I picked up more.
As for financial difficulty, they did the same thing in 2019 in collaboration with Ettinger if I recall correctly, so I think they’re alright in that regard.
I mean the counter argument is that real fans of the brand got amazing bargains and clothes that may have been wasted , weren’t. Which is no bad thing
But i did find the whole thing hard to stomach too. The year my wife bought me 3 full priced ties for my birthday for example, which was a real stretch for her and a meaningful present to me, suddenly didn’t sit well with me.
I also didn’t really enjoy watching the drakes staff , all of whom I really like, have a pretty bad day clearing up after everyone.
