I've been away from tpf for a while and when I came back, I noticed that the list of Contemporary Designers has really dwindled. I can only name two that are gone but can't remember all of them: Botkier & Treesje. Am I right about that? Anyway, just wanted to discuss what you've all noticed. Mulberry & Coach have been in the news recently due to plummeting sales and stock prices. If I'm not mistaken, dare I say that Marc Jacobs has had his day? I truly hope I don't offend anybody, but his bags don't sell like they used to - or is this my imagination? The MbMJ bags wind up in heaps on sale at Holts. What else? Is it the economy? Just too many choices out there?
