Re: Re: gaiety centre
The planners don’t give a dam, I think we’ve established that, it’s the architect who should have known better.
The way I understand fashion retailing, it’s all about creating an artificial environment where the true value of things is no longer dicernable; a coat, for example that may have â‚¬10 worth of material in it and â‚¬15 worth of Taiwanese labour, is hung on rail for â‚¬200, or a shirt, that was never â‚¬50, is 50% off at â‚¬25! Places where a person’s very appearance is manipulated by soft lighting and dodgy mirrors to look younger/taller/thinner than they actually are. A place wher plastic payment can be deferred, at a hefty interest rate, to some time in the future.
These are the last places where they’re going to want windows letting reality in!
