Consider the luxury handbag: made from sumptuous leather, trimmed with sturdy hardware, built to stand the test of time, and finished with the brand's status-imbuing label. Taken together, these details make the case that such a bag is worth a big investment. Would this same luxury handbag still be covetable with the label stripped away?

Italic's business model opens up some interesting questions about consumers' relationship with luxury and brand names.

Body care for women with hair

Flamingo is a up-start out of Harry's razors taking claim of women's grooming. I've avoided the pink tax for a few years by creating a Harry's account for myself after I noticed the high quality of my husband's Harry's razors and the convenience of a subscription.
