However fashionscandal.com always manages to get to you these hush-hush news!
JP Singh, the head-to-toe branded Surdy who is nowadays more famous, rather infamous for being incriminated in the notorious MCI scam is back to what he does best – showing off his moolah power with crass consumption.
But JP seems to have diluted his loyalty to Louis Vuitton and moved on to Armani. Reason though has got to do more with Armani’s sales girl, Lipika than the merchandise. Recently JP spent a whopping Rs. 15 lacs shopping at the Armani store at DLF Emporio and in return the outgoing salesgirl doesn’t mind being JP’s arm-kandy. In fact JP has got Armani a new customer, his friend Pawan Vora, who courtesy his Guthka money is also a big-spender. Atul Midha should really promote this girl Lipika for getting good sales. I don’t know if it is Armani’s new sales strategy – to lure in customers with a perk thrown in as a dinner date with the sales girl. I spotted JP and Lipika at 360 degrees at The Oberoi having a cozy dinner!
In fact Pawan Vora, JP’s pal had the luxury of celebrating his birthday, cutting cake and popping champagne within the Armani store at Emporio. I doubt if many have had this privilege at Armani stores worldwide. Way to Go, huh!
Just the other day, on Saturday afternoon I walked into the Hermes store at The Oberoi and was rather surprised to see a Birkin on display. I asked the sales staff if the Birkin was just for display or one can buy it. The answer was, “Yes, it’s for selling.” There’s no WAIT LIST for Birkin Bag anymore! I am sure now the snob value of the Birkin will take a dip too. I feel sad for Anu Dewan who painfully collected Birkins in every colour and size I confirmed the news. “It seems that the wait list for the Hermes Birkin Bag is a victim of the recession”, SheFinds reports. When Portero Luxury began advertising Birkins alongside text that read, “The Wait Is Over. Get Yours Now!” the SheFinds editors “called around to Hermes, and found out there is no more silly waiting list–they told us we could walk right in and get one today.”
The cheapest styles still cost Rs. 3Lacs, so it’s still quite the life decision…but impulse shopping just got that much easier.
