As seen on a celebrity
A boutique copies and sells all the clothes the Letizia Princess has. They’re identical replicas of the most famous clothes the princess has used for her public acts. The prices are from 700 to 1.000€, a very “accessible” price.
Why it matters
Hugely successful brand ASOS, with the name As Seen On Screen, chosen in order to try to show the brand's intention to supply the public with outfits similar to the styles of celebrities. While small boutiques can’t compete with the scale of large high street brands, will they use niche tactics such as representing a single celebrity to justify their existence?
Fashion makers CLOT (HK) and Head Porter (JP)have reworked the low priced red-white-blue bag by incorporating the design for their range of luxury bags.
Mabonneamie.com is a new online boutique which allows women to borrow the latest designer dresses for a small fee. It’s identical to the concept of hiring a suit, but the collections are updated weekly. Subscriptions are also available for regular borrowers.
