let them spend as much as they can afford... doesnt bother me too much
its just that this is a completly different 'reality' than most of us live in

what bothers me is when low or medium income individuals slave for designer labels.. thats a different issue

*statistics say that right after 9.11 luxe clients got into a temporary 'guilt' syndrome and they cut on buying too many luxury items for themselves.. still they spended much more on luxury items for their kids..
I thought we were talking about the "little marc" line, Lena....

I guess for stars it's fun to be able to waste money on Marc Jacobs clothing for their kids.. but I don't get it

however, with stars becoming younger and younger in age in movies now.. maybe they'll start making more lines just for those famous kids in movies!
I'll be getting mine "little wal-mart" haha

Now, Where did I put my Couture?

Btw, there are dogs who actually need clothes in certain weather. Sight hounds, for example, have very little body fat, so if people want to walk their dogs in the winter, or take them camping in cold weather, they really do need protection. You can get the same type of high-performance stuff that say, mountain-climbers wear, for dogs.

Some dogs (of the same long-haired breed, for example, and even from the same breeder) are also more sensitive to the cold than others, so you could put one in a sweater so two dogs could be equally comfortable on a snowy walk.

This I would love Not too excited about the sound of these basics but would like to see…Thanks for the info

Just wanted to add my 2 cents about the children’s designer wear issue as I’m quite fed-up w/many of the views in this thread (sadly also the mentality here in Holland -> this is v. different in France, Spain etc.)

Many children’s 'designer' labels like baby Dior, Kenzo etc. are priced in the range of the nicer 'boutique brands' – certainly not cheap but far from the $700 sweater & other extreme examples mentioned in this thread...

There is also a large offer of old season clothing at outlets etc. and it is certainly possible to dress your child in good quality 'labels' without spending a fortune…Finally, you can easily resell well cared for brand name clothing & recup part of the cost (and with all the wear & tear these clothes will hold up MUCH better than generic 'cheap' brands)

So, apart from the fact that I love to shop for my daughter & get great pleasure from seeing her well dressed - imo good quality key pieces are also much better value for money

On a different note: while I love to dress up my little girl I think my mom was even more enthusiastic w/me -> I was dressed in smocked dresses over /homemade slips which she embroidered with ornate little initials & accessorized w/ matching hats & little parasols

I don't see anything wrong with buying designer clothing for children - however, with a lot of pieces that are shown, they are so casual and basic that they look just like any other piece of clothing out there.

however, if you got a special piece for your child for certain events, etc. I could understand that. however, normal jeans, and shirts from Dolce & Gabbana for kids, etc.. I just don't get it

although, that's just my personal opinion if you've got the money to buy designer clothing for children, go for it!

My thoughts exactly. Every time I think of something disturbing like that the word "immoral" springs into my mind. I do realise of course, that this a relative emotion. Technically, we don't NEED designer clothes either and could give our money to charity instead. I guess it's the LEVELS at which such spending occurs are what's scary.

here you go guys...
i've created this thread in an effort to keep this one on topic since it's clear that certain people really seem to want to talk about the morality and ethics of designer clothing for kids...

so here is a place for it...
