About 30% of luxury labels still arent available here.” No discounts, no sales Eggs is not keen on talking about prices, although he reveals that the cheapest thing in the Warsaw shop is a calendar refill 149 zlotys (35 euros). The lowest price for a bag is 2,100 zlotys (492 euros), while the most expensive piece from the exotic series made of python, ostrich or crocodile leather goes for more than 85,000 zlotys (19,920 euros). When I ask how many of those bags they hope to sell, he answers: 2,700 BMW cars were sold last year in Poland. Thats quite a lot considering the price of these cars is 50,000 euros. Fifty thousand euros for a car is not the same as 20,000 for a handbag, I point out. Ask women. Many would prefer the bag, he answers.

Daughter’s Got a Brand New Bag, and It’s Louis Vuitton

A report last month by consultancy Millward Brown Optimor estimated that Vuittons brand value declined 12 percent over the past year. LVMH in April reported its weakest fashion and leather goods revenues in more than three years as sales flattened in China. As consumers make room for those luxuries that make them feel better by trading down on other items, it is the middle-of-the-road brands, such as Vuitton, that have suffered, Millward Brown Optimor said. Delphine Arnaults task will be to give the brand a more exclusive aura, deemphasizing its ubiquitous monogrammed canvas bags and introducing costlier leather bags. In the short term, that could depress sales growth, as LVMH also has said it plans to open fewer Vuitton boutiques. Delphine is the eldest of Bernard Arnaults five children. For the past five years she has held the No. 2 job at Christian Dior Couture, also controlled by her father.
