Are the days of expensive designer jeans numbered?
We’ve blogged in the past about how Posh’s dVb line has been relegated to fashion’s basement. The now not-so-posh have been marked down to $30-$60 at discount retailers. Many of our readers agree, the dVb line’s quality is not as good as other high end denim brands out there, and the materials feel cheap.
Will the economic crisis in the U.S. have an impact on these top-dollar goods such as designer jeans? I don’t think the days of QUALITY designer denim are numbered, only cheaply produced denim, like Victoria’s dVb brand need worry. Basing all of this on dVb’s faltering success would be very presumptuous to assume all designer denim will end up the same way. Quality will always demand and usually receive what it’s worth. If it feels cheap, it probably is and that’s what I think the problem is here.
Will the U.S. lingering recession take down the prices on all premium designer denim lines or is it really a quality issue? Have you cut your spending on premium denim due to the economy being depressed?
