generous hostess gift by itself
Japan continues to be the most important market in Asia for luxury goods companies and nothing epitomizes the Wonderland-like quality of the Japanese recession like the giant orange Hermes box in the heart of Ginza, Tokyo's most exclusive shopping district. We can just look at sales figures for Tiffany & Co. Sales in Japan rose 21 percent in the first half of the year in yen terms from a year earlier, while sales in the rest of Asia fell 16 percent in local currencies for the same period. And earlier this month, Tiffany said it expected to meet earnings estimates for the third quarter, in large part because robust sales in Japan would offset weak sales in the United States. There are other measures of the staying power of luxury goods here. Gucci Group N.V., for instance, has tiffany seven stores in Japan since the beginning of the year and will open a flagship store in the chic Aoyama neighborhood next spring. ''Japanese consumers are continuing to perceive great value in luxury brands,'' said Domenico De Sole, the president of Gucci.
Hermes has a three-year backlog of orders in Japan for Kelly bags, made famous by the actress Grace Kelly. The least expensive model sells for 430,000 yen, or about $3,645 at current exchange rates. The Hermes box in Ginza sits on property reportedly bought for $84 million. The company plans to open a flagship store on the site in 2000. Louis Vuitton, a unit of LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton S.A., expects a 7 percent to 8 percent increase in sales this year.People who know more about Tiffany Jewelry will know that tiffany Jewelry has many cheap pendants.
