Hailing from a city that is quite the opposite (where many will refuse to wear an article of clothing if the brand's name or emblem is visible), it was fun to observe how important these articles were to the people of Hong Kong.
When I asked a friend who lives in Hong Kong why people are willing to spend so much on their clothing and accessories, he said,"Real estate is ridiculously expensive in Hong Kong. What's another $600 for a purse when you're already paying $5600/month to rent a 100 square foot apartment?"

|I didn't even let myself go inside.|
|They have a hotel where you drop off your handbags to be cleaned and repaired!|
