The Luxury Strategy

9780749456993: The Luxury Strategy

What realy is a luxury brand? What is a luxury strategy?

The rapid growth of so-called luxury brands means they can now be found within almost every retail, manufacturing and service sector, whilst new terms qualifying luxury, such as "new luxury" "mass-luxury" and "luxury fashion" regularly appear. But if "luxury" is everywhere and if everything is luxury", then has the term itself lost its meaning?

The Luxury Strategy is the definitive work that sets the record straight on the essence of a luxury strategy. It puts an end to the prevailing conceptual and managerial confusion, and explains the fundamental differences between "premium", "fashion", and "luxury" strategies. Based on an analysis of the social functions of luxury, worldwide best practices (beyond the traditional sectors of luxury) and first-hand direct experience, it sets out the constraining and often paradoxical rules for success, such as turning marketing rules upside-down.

The Luxury Strategy provides the first rigorous blueprint for the effective management of luxury brands and companies at the highest level, including human resources and financial management. The first book on strategy, it rationalizes those business models that have achieved profitability whilst sustaining the luxury status of their brands. It unveils the original methods that were used to transform small family businesses such as Ferrari, Louis Vuitton, Cartier, Chanel, Armani, Gucci, and Ralph Lauren into profitable global brands.

The Luxury Strategy will help you to gain a thorough understanding of the unique rules for successful luxury brand management. But more than this, it describes how any organization, from any sector, can learn from luxury and differentiate itself in the long term, even in the business-to-business environment.
