🔮💎 The Boldness of Luxury #56

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

Luxury brands’ boldness

As the digitization continues to reach new heights, brands are innovating more than ever to express their boldness. Luxury brands are making big efforts to offer an exceptional customer experience.

In this week’s newsletter I’ll take a look at how luxury brands are dealing with the challenges ahead, from becoming carbon neutral like L’Oreal USA or banning fur in their products like the Kering group. They have the boldness to explore new territories like the metaverse (see Dior’s latest campaign) or to leverage tech like Lancome.

Being bold is no longer an option for luxury brands and the best is yet to come…

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