ECONOMIES OF SCALE

Who says the French don't supersize? When it comes to luxury goods iconography, they definitely go large! The photo on the left accompanied this article from yesterday's New York Times...It reminded me of the photo on the right, which I took in Paris during the summer of 2004.

Left: 75 foot model of Chanel Jacket erected by Karl Largerfeld for the spring haute couture show-Grand Palais, Paris. Right: Louis Vuitton's giant monogram exterior; used to hide renovation of it's flagship store-Champs Elysees, Paris.
