Luxury Fashion Market Trends/Drivers:

Rise in affluent consumers

As individuals attain higher levels of wealth and disposable income, their purchasing power increases. This newfound affluence allows them to indulge in luxury fashion items that were once considered out of reach. Luxury fashion brands cater to this demand by offering exclusive, high-quality products that resonate with the discerning tastes of affluent consumers. These consumers seek to display their elevated social status, personal style, and appreciation for craftsmanship. The increased demand from affluent consumers serves as a driving force for the growth and expansion of the luxury fashion market, prompting brands to innovate, create desirable collections, and provide exceptional customer experiences. According to Forbes, in 2023 Prada announced that it would venture into skin care and color cosmetics. It wasn't the first time that a luxury house specializing in garments and accessories entered the beauty industry. Tom Ford’s fine fragrances and makeup lines have adored significant success. It has also owned the respect of beauty insiders and enthusiasts. Several heritage brands from Chanel to Hermes and Dior have carved out their names across the world of skincare, fragrances, and makeup artistry. This is expected to fuel the market share of luxury fashion brands.

Aspiration for exclusivity and uniqueness

Luxury fashion brands excel at creating limited edition pieces, collaborating with renowned designers, and utilizing rare materials. This emphasis on exclusivity appeals to consumers who desire to stand out and own items that are not easily accessible to the masses. The allure lies in the uniqueness and individuality that comes with owning a rare and coveted fashion item. The aspiration for exclusivity drives consumer demand, as individuals seek to differentiate themselves and showcase their discerning taste and elevated status through owning these exclusive and distinctive luxury fashion pieces. For instance, in July 2023, Givenchy partnered with famous Chinese influencer Tao Liang, known to the world as Mr. bags, to create an exclusive limited edition run of the labels popular Voyou bag. The special edition bag was made available exclusively to China via Mr. bags’ WeChat mini-programme store.

Branding and brand equity

Luxury fashion brands invest heavily in creating a distinct brand identity and reputation. Through meticulous craftsmanship, exclusive collaborations, and captivating storytelling, they establish an aura of desirability and prestige around their products. The strong brand equity enhances consumer perception of value, trust, and quality. This, in turn, drives consumer demand and willingness to pay a premium for luxury fashion items. Branding creates differentiation in a competitive market, fosters customer loyalty, and fuels the aspirational nature of luxury fashion, ultimately catalyzing the market and sustaining the success of luxury fashion brands. For instance, in April 2023, Emporio Armani launched a new initiative, in collaboration with Treedom (a platform that supports agroforestry projects across the globe), to promote the responsible use of natural resources, in the honor of Earth Day.
