From what I can see though, you are forgetting that we are talking about two entirely different labels, with two different brands, identities and target demographics. Yes, they both have MKA behind them, but MKA are doubling their market share by targeting different demographics with different amounts of money to spend. The Row doesn't suffer because its branding strategy is separate.
miu miu and prada are different brands, but even with the house's experience, quality, bla,bla,bla... i still think it damaged what, to that point, i thought of prada
ever since, i jsut see miu miu as a watered down version of the creative process behind prada, that produces daring-it-bags and shoes with very similar prize tags.
considering that the row is less-than-a-year old, this could really ruin it... it will certainly sell a lot to people who could not buy the row but, think about it this way:
imagine what could happen if galliano created a laber called "whatevername" to produce cheaper outfits that would look like his couture collections!
even though it's not the same brand, if the designer is the same, the style, the tase is the same. there will be similarities, just like you find them in miu miu and prada, or even between chanel and lagerfeld gallery, fendi...
