🔮💎 Bear market who? - What The Luxe #87

Welcome back to What The Luxe, a newsletter packed with
insights & intelligence for luxury, beauty & lifestyle marketers
—written by me, David Klingbeil

No Bear Market for Luxury?

In the ever-changing landscape of global markets, one thing remains steadfast: the indomitable spirit of luxury. Unlike many industries that ebb and flow with economic tides, the luxury sector has proven itself to be remarkably resilient.

Unprecedented moments are unfolding before us, as boundaries are pushed and industry giants take center stage.

  • L'Oréal, a powerhouse in beauty, has acquired the distinctive Aesop brand. This merger sets the stage for unparalleled innovation and creative genius.
  • Meanwhile, Hermès, a symbol of timeless elegance, has ascended as the second largest luxury brand on the globe.
  • In a further twist of fate, Bernard Arnault, the CEO of LVMH, now reigns supreme atop the Bloomberg billionaire index.

As we embark on this voyage through the resplendent world of luxury, we invite you to open your mind, indulge your senses, and savor the essence of modern opulence.

Welcome to the story of our times.

I hope this newsletter will inspire you, surprise you and make you think… What the Luxe?!
