Luxury brands are no longer the luxury goods of the rich, they are also the filhiest of filth.
Luxury goods like jewellery, cars and designer bags are being marketed to people who are filthy rich and they are not good for them, a new report has found.
The report by the Australian Institute of Economic and Social Research (AIESR) shows the trend is accelerating, and is set to become more extreme as luxury brands continue to increase in popularity and sales.
“Wealth-generating and lifestyle brands have become increasingly popular with affluent consumers,” AIESR chief economist Simon Butler said.
“For example, the luxury luxury brand Hermès is currently valued at $8 billion, while the luxury brand Prada is valued at more than $10 billion.”
“Luxury brands continue their relentless expansion of the consumer market, with brands like Chanel, Louis Vuitton, and Chanel-owned brands increasingly reaching a range of affluent consumers across Australia.”
The report shows that the growth in luxury brands, and the rise of luxury brands’ marketing and marketing strategy, have been fuelled by consumer demand for luxury goods.
“Leveraging new technology and the internet to attract more affluent consumers, luxury brands are marketing themselves as luxury goods and are now targeting affluent buyers in a manner similar to their own retail stores,” Mr Butler said.
“”While luxury brands may have previously marketed to affluent consumers by appealing to their sense of style and exclusivity, they now target affluent consumers in a fashion that is more upscale, sophisticated and aspirational.
“Luxury luxury brand ‘Luxurious’ luxury brand will now be branded with filthier words The report suggests the “filthiest” brands will now receive a “filthy” brand name, to “enhance the brand’s image as a luxury brand”.
AHSR chief executive Greg McLean said that the report highlighted the need for businesses to rethink how they promote luxury brands and their products, including by making the brands themselves more accessible to people. “
These filth-enhanced brands will have filth in common with the filtration systems in their home and offices, which are designed to remove the filestream of filthyness and germs, and to keep the filTH from contaminating the product,” Mr Hamilton said.
AHSR chief executive Greg McLean said that the report highlighted the need for businesses to rethink how they promote luxury brands and their products, including by making the brands themselves more accessible to people.
“The rise of the luxury brands has made it possible for some businesses to increase their sales and profits and to attract the bulk of the wealthy customers,” he said.
“For many businesses, however, the rise in luxury brand sales is not the main driver of their growth, but is a by-product of their increased brand recognition and brand awareness, which has led to a greater awareness of the brands’ brand attributes, which in turn has led them to grow their sales.”
AHSR CEO Greg Mclean says the rise and popularity of luxury goods is a ‘direct result’ of brands ‘filthier’ branding The report found that the number of luxury brand products sold in Australia fell by 11.4 per cent between 2011 and 2017, compared with the previous year.
The report also found that in 2017, luxury brand companies sold more than 1.3 million luxury goods, compared to just 1.2 million in 2015.
“This is the largest increase in luxury product sales since the introduction of the ATS in 2007,” Mr McLean wrote.
“In the last three years, luxury product brands have also been on a roll, selling more than 3 million luxury products in 2017 and 3.4 million in 2016.”
The “filtration” that Luxury Brands are using to remove filth is not effective, the report found.
Instead, the AIESr report recommends that luxury brands use their “filty” branding to promote products that are less filthy, such as the “luxury” brand, and products that have been developed to remove stains, such.
However, the brands marketing strategy will not be changing, and may still be used to increase the visibility of luxury products to wealthier consumers.
