Welcome to the new Luxury Society.
The luxury industry is going through an unprecedented set of changes: luxury consumers are changing, China has become a top market for luxury consumption, travel retail is more important than ever, and the global geo-political climate leaves much uncertainty.
Our vision is that technology and digitalization are the most important underlying forces shaping the future of the luxury industry. Digitalization is impacting the way brands communicate, the way they sell and build relationships with their consumers, and also the way they have to operate to remain relevant and desirable in a digital age.
The new Luxury Society will focus on the Shaping the Future of Luxury and on the specific opportunities lying ahead. We seek to answer questions such as:
To start this exciting new journey, we have asked NYT Journalist and JCK Editor-in-Chief Victoria Gomelsky to walk us through what 10 Thought Leaders Believe Luxury Brands Must Do To Stay Relevant, we’ve asked HODINKEE’s Stephen Pulvirent to share with us How Zenith & Hodinkee Sold Out of Their Limited Edition Watch (in Under an Hour), and we're proud to share interviews with venerable watch brand A. Lange & Söhne's CEO, Wilhelm Schmid and legendary CEO of LVMH Watches, Jean-Claude Biver (thanks to our partner Jing Daily).
I’m looking forward to starting this new chapter with you, and keen to hear your feedback and ideas linked to the future of the Luxury Industry.
