I am not at all suggesting that that would be every wearers intention. I am just saying that it can appear that way, which if taken that way by the viewer, may seem a bit ”unflattering”. I wish I could get over this thought since many brooches like that are quite pretty, the CC ones included, but this instant assumption, including the assumption that others would think the same, makes me steere away from them myself. And also, someone might actually mistake something I wore for Chanel, which to me would be almost equally awkward as wearing a fake piece.I guess it depends on the type of brooch. I have various brooches that are not the standard CC brooches and I wear them not to suggest I am wearing Chanel, but because I like how they look on my, e.g, coat. In fact, you'd have to have your face on my chest lol to see the cc on them.
But I like the clean look of letters as symbols, such as CC, YSL, GG, LV etc., and they are often, aesthetically, more easily incorporated than symbols that actually represents something more specific, like flowers, hearts, horse shoes, lions, bees, flies and such. So I do understand the appeal.
