    actually i believe it 50% percent each...i was in taipei earlier this year...saw many taiwanese ladies carry LV, chanels, prada, miu miu and many Birkins...if you go to those prestigeous malls you will see plenty...they are pretty well dressed and very fashionable as they love to follow the japanese trend.

    and to add: i spotted alot of prestigeous cars too...like lambo, ferraris, Maserati, aston martins..etc..

    For those who can afford, even their shower foam and shampoo are those big brands. Thus quite a no of people still prefer the brand and quality.

    Why is it that there is not mention about Bottega? Singaporeans still can't appreciate the understated luxury?

    Sometimes rich people do take public transport for convenience sake.

    It perfectly fine to take public transport when carrying a birkin, especially since public transport is so accessible here in singapore.

    To me it just like driving a flashy car but the driver could be in flipflops with a giordano tee and brandless bermudas.

    just my 2cents

    Many friends i talked to love to use their lv, prada and all their other high brands and never use their carlo rino, guess and other middle brands. Its is kept in their closet. Even coach bags and katespade was not used because they love to show their luxuries...
