'Conspicuous Consumption' by Fred Butler

We’re all familiar with the concept of the ‘It’ bag, but Fred Butler pushes it to the wonderful extreme in her ‘Conspicuous Consumption’ film. We don’t want to ruin it for you, but suffice to say it must be the first time anyone with a Chanel 2.55 has been turned away from the door of Harrods.

    Hilarious! In terms of the brief, the only thing I miss is some reaction shots from passersby

    Hilarious! Absolutely love it! Genius when you took the free newspaper. Did the store security man let you into the store? Why didn't you go into the Chanel store? Presumably because they wouldn't let you. Thanks for the chuckles. xx
