Maybe they're missing the point?

As is perhaps screamingly obvious from the picture that appears beside this column every day, I'm not one for designer labels.

I'd like to say that's because I ethically source all my clothes, but...no, the truth is that while I'm prepared to make the brave and highly controversial stance of saying that I am against nine-year-old Asian kids working their tiny little fingers to the bone, let's be honest – the biggest argument against designer labels is...the people who wear the stuff.

Is there anything more depressing than some poseur boasting about the fact that they just spent five hundred lids to wear a jacket with someone else's name on it?
