After many years of big and splashy designer logos plastered all over designer handbags, the affluent consumer is now trending toward a more subtle look. Some of the big name, high-end luxury designers such as Gucci, Louis Vuitton and Prada have hit a bump in the road. The wealthy are still spending big dollars on luxury designer brands but they are looking for understated luxury. Personal style and individuality are the new “cool” rather than conspicuous consumption. These trends come and go. What’s your preference—subtlety or splashy??
