Japanese customers buy luxury goods in order to line up to their community although Chinese ones want to be higher than others. Showing their luxury spendings prove they are superior because they look rich.

Therefore, minds are changing. Indeed, luxury products became accessible for middle-class’ consumers and rich ones don’t want to buy Louis Vuitton anymore. They say this is a brand for secretaries. Actually, nowadays, we meet Louis Vuitton bags everywhere. The brand is too ordinary and rich Chinese expect from more originality.

That’s why they prefere buying Chanel or Dior goods which are seen more anthentic and rare.This reputation’s decreasing of the Louis Vuitton brands is also due to it contrefeit handbags especially in China but all around the World too.

Consequently, brands’ sales are less efficient in China and companies have to adapt their prices to be more competitive on the World’s market. They need to find a way so that attract the Chinese consumers to buy in their own country.
