    There are actually three different clothing stores in this city, which use the Armani bird logo trademark as part of their store-front branding. Non of which actually sells Armani, or least any Armani which is remotely genuine.


    BTW I wonder which famous German car manufacturer is having its trademark infringed here?

    Brand positions themselves as luxury brand, charges insane, unearned prices. Cultivates aura of exclusivity. Brand realizes exclusivity means exclusivity -- not many buyers. Creates diffusion lines and brandwhore items people can afford (plaid belts, LV wallets). People buy their stuff. With people buying their stuff, they are perceived as less exclusive, oh noes!

    WAT DO!

    Maybe it's the small-timer in me, but I don't think HSM started out as an "economy" brand.

    I'm guessing OP either mistook D&G for Dolce & Gabbana or he really meant D&G, and yes that is not a luxury brand.

    I think it's perceived as being luxury here in China though. They sure charge a lot for the real-mccoy in Beijing and Shanghai. Hell there is even a knock-off version called Dolce & Banana, D&B. :D

    Bet Giorgio would be livid when he finds this out!!

    I wonder when will the day finally come when one finds a high street shop in China selling fake Armanis with Armani internal decor, complete with a sign including the fake Armani eagle logo and a shop name that reads like Armani in Chinese.

    But its not really Armani (wink. wink.). Its Ya-Man-Ni complete with properous Mandarin characters.

    Giorgio loves China and China loves Giorgio. He is very aware of this and takes it as a compliment.

    You kidding right? Most Westerners not used to China's 'laissez faire' ways do not take too kindly to money being taken from their pockets or being made used of.
