Cartier is refreshing the Tank Américaine, one of its more modern takes on the Tank shape. The new-for-2023 Tank Américaine lineup includes 11 total watches across three sizes: mini, small, and large.

Cartier’s popularity over the past few years has been largely thanks to its small, thin dress watches, and now it’s updating the Tank Américaine to better fit this mold. To be sure, the new Américaine still carries the largest profile of the Tank collection, but everything’s been slimmed down and refined.

Why Instagram Reels are an essential part of a strong marketing strategy

Instagram Reels are a great way to increase your engagement on the platform. They provide an opportunity to share short, dynamic content that can capture the attention of your followers and potentially attract new ones. The algorithm prioritises reels, therefore pushing your reel content to more users than it would still images or carousels. 

This leads to more awareness for your brand and what you are featuring in the video. If done correctly, you could also push people to your link in bio to make a purchase, sign up, or other desired call to action for your business.

Reels can also help you create more meaningful connections with your audience by allowing you to showcase your brand personality and humanise your brand all around. In this day and age, consumers want to be treated like human beings and individuals and not another sale to add to your business.

In order to meet this demand and create relationships and communities in the digital space, it is crucial to take advantage of the Instagram algorithm and reel content to succeed and connect with your audience.

Why should you post reels?

  • Reels get 22% more interaction on Instagram than standard video postings in a carousel
  • Reels have 2 billion Monthly Active Users
  • 91% of Instagram Users watch Instagram Videos Every Week
  • According to Meta, Instagram Reels ads can reach up to 675.3 million people
  • Since the introduction of reels in 2020, the Instagram algorithm has continued to favour reels
  • Data from Meta shows that approximately 200 millions users look at the explore page daily, making it an excellent tool for increasing engagement and expanding your reach.

The Future of Luxury Marketing

Luxury goods consumers are increasingly active on the web, as are high-end brands, which are continually strengthening their online presence and luxury retail marketing strategies. In this article, we take a look at digital trends and the future of the luxury goods market.

Luxury Retail: What it is and What it offers Consumers

Digitalisation of the luxury market, as well as of every other sector, is increasingly rapid and ultimately unstoppable. To give an idea of how the luxury consumer landscape has changed, the average age of luxury goods buyers is much lower: by 2025 it is expected that those born between 1991 and 2012 (i.e. “Millennials” and “Generation Z”) will cover more than 40% of the total luxury goods market. As a result, purchases will increasingly shift to mobile devices – smartphones, first and foremost – while still maintaining a high spending capacity per individual.

The luxury market is also expanding geographically, especially to the East. Chinese luxury consumers are projected to be 40% of the total luxury market by 2024, while Europe will be left with only 20%. This change in target audience has, and will have, repercussions on luxury retail marketing strategies, which must adapt to follow the new needs of luxury consumers. Namely: an impeccable shopping experience, which, in 65% of cases, is carried out in-store, a uniform brand image, and attention to issues related to sustainability – both ecological and related to social impact. Cutting-edge technologies are also increasingly prominent in the luxury world, including those that improve and optimise the users’ shopping experience. Luxury retail marketing is focusing on ways to build consumer loyalty through an omni-channel approach, which we know is increasingly digital, but equally placing an importance on integrating physical reality and the virtual world.

Digital and Marketing

The sale of luxury goods is progressively taking place online, or at least it is increasingly linked to the opportunities offered by digital. This situation has given rise to a series of digital trends in luxury retail, which are changing the way consumers interact, and also expanding the luxury market. One of the most relevant developments, is Amazon’s launch of Amazon Luxury Stores – a private area of the platform available only to certain Prime subscribers in the US. Thanks to this new feature, haute couture brands will be able to show their garments through interactive 360-degree content via ‘View in 360’ mode, allowing users to view details online like never before. Amazon Luxury Stores have brought luxury to the US e-commerce universe and are about to expand into the UK, Germany, France, Italy and Spain. In addition to this definitive move into the world of e-commerce via Amazon, many haute couture brands have also launched themselves into the virtual world, the Metaverse. But the new trends in the luxury market don’t end there.

Luxury and Social Media

We are all aware of the presence of luxury on social media and the virtual world with more and more high-fashion brands leading the industry. But the art market is now consolidated in the Metaverse too, thanks to NFTs and crypto art.

The World of Luxury on Social Media

The integral role of digital is nothing new, just as the importance of the Metaverse, is not new. This is evidenced by both the growth of the luxury real estate market in the Metaverse and the investments of the most famous fashion brands in the virtual world, culminating in Metaverse Fashion Week.

Focusing, however, on the aspect of communication and marketing, it is important to emphasise the weight that social media plays today in the strategies of brands operating in the luxury market. Social media are decisive for luxury brands to evoke emotions and engage the public in a genuine and spontaneous way, less formal and elitist than the communicative traditionally used in the luxury segment. Today, the interaction between the brand and the user on social media has become central to the marketing strategies of luxury brands, as has the creation of digital content in collaboration with celebrities and influencers, which are a common tool for increasing the popularity of brands, especially in specific market segments such as the younger generation.

Thus, luxury communicated through social media brings the user to the center, as a co-creator of content within a virtual community centered on a specific brand, where consumers are not just recipients of a message, but interact and form an opinion that contributes to the brand’s own business decisions. Luxury brands can amplify and enhance their communication, get a realistic view of the market, receive additional support for product development, strengthen the relationship with existing customers and increase their loyalty, as well as have access to all the data voluntarily provided by the users. Confirming this trend is some data referring to Twitter where, as early as 2020, 86 percent of users were interested in viewing more content from brands in the industry, and in 2021, there were more than 400 million views of Live Fashion events broadcast on the platform (about 250 million more than the previous year). Luxury brands that have live streamed on Twitter include Louis Vuitton, which boasts more than 9.3 million followers, as well as Balenciaga, Prada, and Hermès, already pioneers in the Metaverse.

 

 

Digital Trends

Many luxury brands are already present in the Metaverse, including Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, Balenciaga, Louis Vuitton, and Moncler. These high-fashion brands testify to how the luxury market in the virtual world is already flourishing, thanks in part to the many VIPs who have pioneered the purchase of virtual products signed by famous brands. Indeed, in recent months, the Metaverse has become a theater for selling and buying luxury items, but the growth trend of the fashion and design industry in the Metaverse is continuing exponentially, and is set to go on without slowing down. And there are several examples of this trend. One is the rush to Web3 adoption undertaken by Gucci with its two NFT collections launched in 2022 and the announcement of the inclusion of cryptocurrencies as a payment method for its products. This second aspect is a really important step, as it will allow Gucci to unite its digital Web3 community with its physical ones, as well as facilitate various marketing strategies and facilitate the fight against counterfeiting, thanks to initiatives such as “#GucciGram” on Instagram or the “FAKE/NOT” collection, which is at the center of an awareness campaign on the issue.

But there is another Italian haute couture giant that has launched itself decisively on social media, Fendi, which has chosen to use Tik Tok to reach the younger market segment, leveraging ad hoc content and partnerships with influencers beloved by the youth audience. Turning to French high fashion, it is impossible not to mention Chanel as an example of using all the different social channels for its communication. The French luxury brand is one of the most influential brands on social media in the luxury sector, thanks to optimising its content to fit each platform. This is how Chanel manages to create videos with millions of views (YouTube), to be at the center of industry narratives (Pinterest), and to publish iconic images of the brand and user-generated content (Instagram). In this way, the French luxury brand has managed to create its own unmistakable communicative language and, at the same time, retain its audience. From Gucci to Fendi, Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana, Balenciaga and Louis Vuitton, it is now evident how, albeit with different modalities and strategies, all brands operating in the luxury segment are present in the virtual and digital worlds, essential pillars for any brand that wants to succeed within the current marketing and consumer ecosystem.

NFTs and Cryptocurrencies

The growth of luxury digital trends also involves the art world, particularly with the phenomenon of crypto art and NFTs. In particular, the link between luxury brands and the virtual world is getting stronger, and it also passes through the world of NFTs and cryptocurrencies. Going back to mention social media and Twitter in particular, it is worth noting that the 2022 Twitter Trends Report found a 320% increase in conversations on topics such as the relationship between NFTs and fashion or collectibles.

For example, Dolce & Gabbana launched its NFT collection “Genesis” through a virtual discussion with Twitter Spaces, while Gucci chose Twitter to publicise its NFT collection “#10KTFGucciGrail” and launch “Supergucci” on Gucci Vault. In short, as also noted at Metaverse Fashion Week, the luxury fashion segment is expanding faster and faster in the virtual world, as are all business areas that are part of the luxury market. Indeed, experts expect rapid and exponential growth in the Metaverse, where more users are accumulating cryptocurrencies in their virtual wallets.

 

 

In conclusion, the luxury market is expected to continue growing in the future, and brands must be creative and agile to keep up with the ever-evolving market. In the coming years, luxury companies will need to embrace digital innovation both to drive an increasingly sustainable turnaround, to be able to effectively convey their heritage, and to develop new creativity by making luxury relevant, exciting, unconventional, engaging and experiential by knowing how to connect and exploit all current consumer touch points, from virtual and augmented reality to the Metaverse and NFTs.

What is a brand strategy?

 

“People do not buy goods and services. They buy relationships, stories and magic.”

– Seth Godin, Entrepreneur & Best-Selling Author

 

There are many definitions of a ‘brand’. Often, when people talk about a brand, they are thinking of the physical mark or logo imprinted on something to identify the business that manufactured it. But a brand is also an emotional experience, strengthened or weakened through every interaction with that business; it is what people think, feel, and say about a business. With our purpose being to create meaningful connections between premium brands and high-net-worth audiences, we always start our client partnerships with a brand strategy.

 

Shaping Success

A brand strategy is a plan for the systematic development of a brand in alignment with a business strategy. A brand strategy helps our clients understand who they are and acts as a blueprint to help us express:

  • What a brand stands for (purpose, vision, mission, values)
  • What a brand does (tagline and value proposition) 
  • How a brand looks and feels (personality, voice, experience)

With a unified brand, everything from a client’s content, to its culture, to its core business is influenced. Indeed, when a company doesn’t know who it is, why it exists, what it believes in, or what it is trying to achieve, that company’s business suffers. 

 

Guiding Decisions 

Without a brand strategy a company makes business decisions that do not reflect the foundations of its reason for being, and hope that whatever marketing they do will work. Without a brand strategy, often a company’s teams can become fractured by disunity, confusion, and conflict, making it hard for employees to feel engaged and interested. When a company does not have cohesive brand messaging, marketing content tends to be inconsistent at best, and contradictory at worst. Ultimately this means a company can not carve out a discernible place in the market.

 

Future Fit Marketing

Central to a brand strategy is the brand vision and the brand mission. A brand vision is a future objective, a future state a client is ultimately working towards some day in the future. 

From an evaluation of stakeholder thoughts, company assets and market position, the brand visions we develop for clients help us create a differentiated visual identity and marketing campaign that will resonate with their customers; as well as energise and inspire everyone inside their company. Our brand visions contain unique adjectives and verbs that reflect a company’s world view, and this shapes the look and feel of a brand. 

For example, if a company’s vision communicates that it sees the world as a project and aims to make the world humane and democratic, then the brand identity will portray a personality that is about stability and control to provide structure to the world; and togetherness and belonging to be a connective force for good. If however a company sees the world as a problem with which it can and must cope through making a living and pleasing those who control its future (i.e. shareholders), then the brand identity will portray service and interdependence, safety and mastery.

 

Reflecting Reality

While a brand’s identity reflects a company’s future state and intention, it must also reflect the actual steps a company takes to move forward. 

A brand mission is present tense, why a company does what it does and who benefits from this work every day. The brand missions we develop for clients ensure we create visual identities and marketing campaigns that provide clarity and unity inside and outside a business, and drive a team forward to a clear destination. Indeed, a brand mission determines the way a company behaves and what it believes, and therefore when we translate this into marketing campaigns that align all touch points with our client’s company, cultivate relationships and ease communication.

For example, a client’s mission might be incremental in nature, which means it must exploit what works, focus on organic growth and appeal with existing customers. Our marketing campaign would therefore demonstrate existing ideas, ways and means a company uses, and serve to meet the needs of customers. Indeed, this type of content will be conservative and safe in tone and subject matter.

However, a client’s mission might be more radical in nature, which means it is keen to explore the new, explore inorganic growth and fascinate existing and new customers. Our marketing campaign would therefore celebrate the creation, discovery and acceleration of completely new ideas, ways and means, and serve to uncover unspoken demands customers might have. This type of content will be more progressive and expressive in tone and subject matter.

 

Adapting to Change 

Successful companies keep an eye on the market to assess whether it is the right time for a refresh or reinvention of a brand identity and marketing campaign. Marketplaces are increasingly turbulent and transformative, and that means brands need to be resilient, open minded and prepared for what happens next. A modern brand needs to inject emerging growth drivers like connectivity, sustainability, trust, simplicity, creativity, and digital into its vision and mission, and identity if it wants to stay relevant and meaningful.

Indeed, things change, and we find clients are adaptive if we give them a good enough reason to relook at how they engage audiences and possibly refresh their brand identity and marketing campaign. It’s important to embrace change and stay ahead in the transformative times we live in.

If you are nervous of a rebrand, evaluate the opportunity and risk of not staying relevant, meaningful and connected to the changing marketplace. Determine what precisely needs refreshing and redirecting (logo? name? look and feel? vision and mission?) and ask yourself if your brand currently sells a differentiated relationship with audiences, with a clear, compelling story, and full of magic that only your company can conjure.

HM Queen Elizabeth II

As the world continues to mourn the loss of Queen Elizabeth II, the LMH team has come together to share our most lovely moments and memories of Her Majesty that will stay with us forever.

Jemma 

Although very difficult to pick one singular moment, one of my most joyful and memorable moments has to be James Bond sketch for the 2012 Olympics. The story of how it unfolded – with a Queen ‘double’ pitched to play the part of the Queen, and the Queen responding with a request to play the part herself – is just fantastic. A truly special memory and such fun to watch.

Chloe

“He is someone who doesn’t take easily to compliments but he has, quite simply, been my strength and stay all these years, and I, and his whole family, and this and many other countries, owe him a debt greater than he would ever claim, or we shall ever know.”

One of the many inspirations I’ve taken from Queen Elizabeth II is her timeless and enduring partnership with Prince Phillip. As a total romantic, watching their commitment, laughter and loyalty for each other over their 74 year marriage is something I have admired and enjoyed wholly. Knowing they are reunited provides me with great comfort through such a difficult period of mourning.

Freya 

This is my favourite clip referring to the Queen as it highlights beautifully that whilst being the most influential woman of our age, she equally had a fierce sense of humour and lovely relationship with all who were lucky enough to work alongside her.

Izzy 

This is my favourite photograph of the Queen. Prince Phillip is dressed in full ceremonial uniform for a ceremony at Windsor Castle and together they chuckle as she walks past him. We are let in to a glimpse of their friendship, a key component their lifelong love and companionship.

Jamie 

This wonderful clip of Queen Elizabeth II and Paddington Bear perfectly encapsulates her brilliant sense of humour. The Queen always found a way to balance duty, strength and respect with humour and compassion – a show of her incomparable leadership.

Rebecca 

Definitely a world icon. Although I am Italian, I have always had great admiration and respect for the queen who has never hidden her mutual love for Italy.

Since 1951 there have been five visits of Elizabeth II to Italy, official meetings with presidents of the Republic and popes, but also with personalities from the world of fashion and entertainment such as Valentino and maestro Riccardo Muti.
