Given the financial market’s current turmoil, it is hard to keep spending money, especially when you hear horror stories from people you know. I know one who lost 80% of her stock portfolio overnight, and another of an ex-broker who is getting sued by his client because of bad trades that made her lose millions.
And when times are tough, it becomes harder for one to justify a bag that costs thousands. Take the Louis Vuiton Suhali Lockit MM in Bronze (new colours for the Suhali range, it also comes in Chrome) for example. Crafted with the finest goat leathers, its contrasted stitching and brass metallic pieces are a definite winner. The only problem? It retails for a cool SGD5050, which is also what the average Singaporean earns in 2 months.
