Vinyl Makes You Trendy focus on vinyl as the belief of the trendy products, with their increasing popularities to increase the products’ perceived values. The consumption of the products is to show off the priority in trend.
Vinyl Makes You Trendy contains two identical bags with different materials. One is bought from MM6 and made of vinyl, marketed at $370. Another one is made by Eason with calfskin, marketed at $576, with MM6 logo.
By comparing with a bag made of leather, it questions the appropriation in application of vinyl to the design that conflicts with material quality of vinyl.
On one hand, it’s the question of aesthetic over function. On the other hand, it’s the application of vinyl to design only because of the vinyl is trendy and can be marketed to a high price.
