Luxury Futures Report 2016


Our annual report on the global luxury sector combines detailed market analysis with a timely reconceptualisation of the very notion of luxury. The decade we call the Turbulent Teens has brought unique pressures and opportunities to bear on the sector, and this report is your definitive guide to negotiating these for success in the years ahead.

With trend analysis, hard data and best-in-class case studies, we show how the luxury industry is shedding its monocultural past to keep up with a broader, better educated, mobile and culturally astute consumer base. We supply the insight, tools and inspiration for luxury brands to fashion a new legacy, rather than leaning too heavily on their heritage.

Learn how to use an emerging lexicon and visual language that emphasises emotional connection over rampant consumption, and cultivate life-long loyalty in your customers. Packed with practical tips on how to implement its insights, The Luxury Futures Report will be an invaluable resource for your future strategy.
