Fashion has long been the barometer of global trends, fashion that can make or break the minutest details in life. This week had a great many highs and lows for fashion aficionados around the world. The luxury sector experienced a bumpy ride while Steve Madden’s new collection made a splash, signifying exciting times ahead for fashion. Let’s take a look at what the week held for fashion and luxury lovers.
1. Luxury Takes a Bumpy Ride in the Week’s News
This week, the allure of luxury took a few unexpected turns. Luxury items were affected by news of upcoming tariffs, and some luxury manufacturers found themselves in the headlines for different reasons.
For starters, luxury makers of leather products, apparel, drugs, and more can expect to feel a pinch due to the proposed tariffs on Chinese imports. The cost of goods imported from the country are expected to increase, leading to higher prices for consumers of many luxury items. Consumers have already begun stockpiling items that may be affected.
- Aside from tariffs, a number of luxury automakers have made news for other reasons.
- Lamborghini recently recalled thousands of units due to a product defect.
- Rolls Royce is being investigated for alleged emissions cheating.
The automakers’ impacts on the luxury market cannot be discounted. Of two of the world’s top luxury auto makers are going through such issues, their woes may be indicative of a downward trend in the luxury market. Consumers may be put off by this news, which could potentially decrease their willingness to buy high-end items.
