^^But the point of the diffusion line is to open it up to a different market of consumers, not shift the consumers of the main line over to the diffusion line. This is what's happening with Dolce, and customers are being lost to the D&G line.

And I don't think the point was that the ultra-rich ones are too snobbish for Dolce because D&G sucks, but rather because it's accessible for people who aren't so rich and lessens the superior+exclusive reputation of the label. I know some will disagree with me, but I think that most Dolce & Gabbana customers buy their clothing partially because of the high-end reputation. It's the same idea as some brands keeping their haute couture lines even if they aren't particularly profitable just for the exclusive reputation, if you get what I mean?

I'm really disappointed that D&G has ended. It was definitely among my favourite brands.

It's disappointing that we're not going to be able to buy the clothes, but I think this might be a good move in some way for Dolce & Gabbana. The identities of D&G and Dolce & Gabbana weren't properly defined - it was all kind of blurry in the public mind. Many people, I mean those who don't follow fashion week, don't even distinguish the two.

I hope the line will come back one day though
