Greece vs China is a plate with a clear concept: take the plates needlessly broken during any traditional Greek wedding celebration. salvage them, and glue them back together to sell them as high minded design objects. But don't worry about getting broken china chips in your hummus because the plates are actually molded to look the part.

Implications - This pre-broken ceramic plates reflect a new sort of luxury that wishes to put understatement at the forefront, rather than perfection and luxury. A related trend that supports a similar idea is pre-chipped nail manicures. This trend appeals to the rich consumer that wishes to try something new and bring themselves back to earth.
