    [#LUXURYLAB] [TENDANCE] | Le #sur-mesure #gagne le #secteur de la #beauté | @FASHIONNETWORK

    DE SARAH AHSSEN | FASHION NETWORK | http://bit.ly/2BHySgp

    Le #sur-mesure #gagne le #secteur de la #beauté

    Arrêter de catégoriser les consommateurs en fonction de leur âge, leur genre ou leur type de peau, c’est ce que préconise Mintel dans son étude prospective sur les tendances mondiales de la beauté en 2018. Le cabinet d’études de marché argue qu’en matière de cosmétiques les consommateurs imposent désormais leurs règles et sont à la recherche d’une offre personnalisée.

    Une montée en puissance de l’expression de l’individualité largement portée par les réseaux sociaux que le cabinet NellyRodi souligne également dans son étude "The new faces of beauty", révélant l'intérêt grandissant des consommateurs pour des marques plus alternatives, exprimant ainsi leur singularité.

    A l’avenir donc, en matière de beauté, les marques devront répondre aux préoccupations individuelles des consommateurs, indique Mintel. Une problématique que certaines ont d’ores et déjà embrassée. Fenty Beauty, la marque de maquillage lancée en septembre dernier par Rihanna et conçue avec Kendo, la filiale de LVMH, propose par exemple 40 nuances de fonds de teint. Lancôme a de son côté créé Le Teint Particulier Custom Made Foundation, une technologie qui détecte la carnation de la peau pour créer un fond de teint sur-mesure.

    Côté maquillage toujours, Eyeko, spécialiste du maquillage des yeux, a lancé Bespoke Mascara Service qui permet de choisir, entre treize brosses et cinq formules, le mascara le plus adapté à ses cils. Un service disponible en France dans le magasin Sephora des Champs-Elysées. Tout juste lancée sur le segment des lèvres, la griffe française La Bouche Rouge proposera pour sa part dès janvier 2018 une application permettant de créer un rouge à lèvres sur-mesure à partir de la photographie d'une couleur.

    Les spécialistes du soin ne sont pas en reste, à l’image de Romy qui a mis au point une application ciblant les besoins de la peau et conseillant une "recette" sur-mesure, ou encore de Laboté qui propose de réaliser un bilan clinique à partir d’un questionnaire élaboré par des dermatologues, et de composer un soin en fonction des résultats.

    [#LUXURYLAB] [BAROMETRE] | PROMISE CONSULTING ET EXANE BNP PARIBAS

    PROMISE CONSULTING ET EXANE BNP PARIBAS S’ASSOCIENT POUR ANALYSER LA SANTÉ FINANCIERE DES MARQUES DE LUXE

    La mesure de la Désirabilité et de l’Exclusivité mise au point par Promise Consulting est pour la 3ème année consécutive retenue par Exane BNP Paribas qui l’intègre comme une des dimensions de son Indice de la Santé des Marques (« Brand Health Index »). Cet indice est régulièrement mis à jour pour analyser la « vraie » valeur des marques de luxe (mode, sacs, chaussures, accessoires, horlogerie, bijouterie, etc.) et la santé économique et financière des acteurs du secteur.

    Promise Consulting, institut d’études spécialiste de l’évaluation de la performance des stratégies marketing, a mis au point en 2005 deux échelles de mesure des dimensions de Désirabilité et d’Exclusivité des marques de luxe.

    Cette métrique éprouvée sur un plan international s’appuie sur une collecte de données régulièrement mise à jour auprès des plus riches clients dans l’univers du luxe (mode et beauté).

    Après trois publications sur la France, la Chine et les USA, les résultats publiés aujourd’hui par EXANE BNP sur le UK confirme la pertinence de la mesure pour comprendre les leviers de croissance des marques, analyser leur performance économique et financière et au final statuer sur leur valorisation en anticipant les marques montantes ou descendantes dans un avenir proche.

    A cet égard, notre Baromètre synthétise dans deux échelles éprouvées les nombreux critères habituellement utilisés par les consommateurs pour hiérarchiser les marques de grand luxe entre elles.

    Notre mesure Exclusivité & Désirabilité établit le lien entre le Marketing et l’Analyse Financière. Ainsi les résultats de notre baromètre conjoint avec Exane BNP reposent sur deux angles d’expertise très complémentaires, apportant une valeur ajoutée unique aux dirigeants, aux décideurs et aux actionnaires dans le secteur du luxe.

    Nous sommes particulièrement fiers d’être intégré dans le Brand Health Index d’Exane BNP, une évaluation de référence des marques pour les décideurs, les investisseurs, les actionnaires et les dirigeants de fonds d’investissement. 

    Si vous souhaitez être informé en avant-première des résultats pour votre marque concernant la mesure en cours, n'hésitez pas à nous contactez : philippe.jourdan@promiseconsultinginc.com

    #Nature, #inclusivité, #personnalité et #personnalisation seront les #moteurs du #marché de la #beauté en #2018

    Selon une nouvelle étude de Mintel, les produits de beauté seront plus inclusifs, plus naturels and locaux, auront davantage de personnalité et seront davantage personnalisés en 2018. La société d’études d’analyse marketing a annoncé quatre tendances qui impacteront le marché mondial des cosmétiques l’année prochaine.

    L’importance des questions environnementales, l’intérêt des consommateurs pour des définitions plus larges de la beauté - dépassant les questions d’âge, de sexe et de type corporel - ainsi que leur recherche d’attitudes éthiques fortes, et les possibilités de personnalisation ouvertes par les technologies numériques seront, selon Mintel, les principales forces influençant le secteur des cosmétiques dans le monde en 2018.

    Beauté naturelle :

    Avec l’évolution des demandes des consommateurs et les changements climatiques à travers le monde, l’industrie de la beauté doit adapter son approche en matière d’ingrédients naturels et durables. Selon Mintel, les progrès des biotechnologies aideront les marques à relever ces défis. « Au cours de la prochaine année, les possibilités offertes par la science de créer des ingrédients sûrs, sans allergènes, purs et efficaces pourraient remplacer la récolte d’ingrédients naturels », souligne Sarah Jindal, Analyst, Beauty & Personal Care chez Mintel.

    La tendance en faveur de produits plus « locaux » offre également des opportunités. Selon Mintel, le sourcing et la production d’ingrédients locaux deviendront essentiels dans les années à venir.

    nature,inclusivité,personnalité,moteurs,marché,beauté,2018

    Beauté inclusive :

    « Les marques cesseront de cibler les consommateurs en fonction de leur âge, de leur sexe ou de leur type corporel, car les consommateurs exigent de plus en plus une beauté plus personnelle définie selon leurs propres termes  », affirme Sarah Jindal.

    Les perceptions de la beauté fondées sur l’âge, le sexe, la peau, les cheveux et le type de corps changent, car aujourd’hui les consommatrices prennent le contrôle de ce qui définit la beauté. « Les acheteuses de cosmétiques exigeront que l’on réponde à leurs besoins individuels en leur offrant des options ou des solutions personnalisées. Les marques se montreront plus inclusives et répondront aux préoccupations individuelles en matière de beauté, ce qui se traduira par une personnalisation accrue des produits. »

    Personnalités affirmées :

    « Se contenter de vendre un super produit de beauté ne sera plus suffisant. Pour les conquérir, les marques doivent avoir une personnalité et un but en rapport avec les valeurs personnelles des consommateurs », explique Sarah Jindal.

    Il incombe maintenant aux marques d’impressionner les consommateurs en développant leur personnalité, de façon humaine, vivante et sincère. Selon Mintel, en 2018 et au-delà, les projets éducatifs et les questions environnementales et éthiques seront au premier plan.

    Personnalisation digitale :

    La technologie numérique rendra les achats plus personnels en 2018. Les marques de cosmétiques vont scruter le moindre mouvement des consommateurs, les technologies numériques permettant une personnalisation sans précédent de l’expérience d’achat. « Mintel prévoit une véritable transformation du secteur de la beauté et en 2018, » conclut Sarah Jindal.

    #7-Eleven #launches #beauty brand with impulse #buys in mind

    Convenience store 7-Eleven is hoping to become the next big beauty destination, thanks to the launch of its debut cosmetics line. The chain store has unveiled a brand-new 40-piece makeup collection titled ‘Simply Me Beauty,’ designed with millennial consumers in mind.

    Described by the retailer as an “affordable, fashion-forward line of makeup,” the Simply Me Beauty brand covers cosmetics and accessories for the face, eyes and lips, with all items priced between US $3 and US $5. From eyeshadow palettes and highlighters to BB foundation creams and eyebrow wax, the collection is positioning itself as a catch-all beauty range for women on the go, banking on the convenience factor of shoppers being able to pick up a bronzer alongside their morning coffee. As well as the traditional mascara, lip gloss and powder compact beauty offerings, the line will also feature tools such as false eyelashes, makeup remover, nail buffers, brushes and blender sponges.

    “Much of the time, makeup items like lip and eye colours are spur-of-the-moment, impulse buys,” said Joy Pico, 7-Eleven category manager, in a statement. “If the price is right, that makes it easier to justify. For a millennial working woman wanting to refresh her makeup while grabbing lunch at 7-Eleven stores, Simply Me Beauty is a welcomed offering and is priced just right for her.”

    The beauty launch, which is set for the Holiday season, will see the line made available at special ‘Gorgeous on the Go’ displays established exclusively at 7-Eleven stores. The brand operates, franchises or licenses 10,900 stores across North America. 7-Eleven also has a presence in Australia, Asia and Scandinavia.

    The beauty products industry is currently worth US$46 billion, and forecast to increase by 12% by 2020. Drug stores and supermarkets have 30 percent of the market, so it makes sense that 7-Eleven wants its slice of the pie, and it isn’t the only mass retailer cashing in on the potential opportunity — earlier this year the pharmacy giant Walgreens targeted younger makeup fans with the launch of a new 160-piece cosmetics collection called CYO.
    In fact, a slew of new makeup lines have appeared on the scene in 2017, with everyone from online fashion retailer Asos and manicure brand Nails Inc, to Rihanna and Kim Kardashian launching own-brand beauty collections.

    [#CONSOLAB] [SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT] | #Guerlain, #luxury #cosmetics flag-bearer for #sustainable #development | @PREMIUM BEAUTYNEWS

    DE FRISTEL MILET | PREMIUM BEAUTY NEWS | http://bit.ly/2hLXpcr

    #Guerlain, #luxury #cosmetics flag-bearer for #sustainable #development

    Spurred on by CEO Laurent Boillot, Guerlain included sustainable development to the company’s strategy as soon as 2007. Although they had remained discreet about their approach since then, the brand has just published a third report celebrating “10 years of sustainable commitment, In the Name of Beauty”, highlighting both their achievements and ambitions for 2020. The decision to finally communicate on this resulted from a nurtured strategic commitment for the future, on all levels. Sandrine Sommer, Sustainable Development Director of the prestigious brand, detailed its content and scope for Premium Beauty News.

    Premium Beauty News - In 2007, luxury and sustainable development hardly worked hand in hand. How was this initiative born? 

    Sandrine Sommer - It was born from a strong-willed man, Laurent Boillot, who had just taken over Maison Guerlain. Sustainable commitment was mainly a personal belief. But beyond that, sustainable development definitely had to be an integral part of the company’s strategy to develop, pass on, and preserve Guerlain’s heritage.

    Premium Beauty News - Protection of bees (they are the Maison’s emblem), biodiversity, climate, eco-design, social responsibility… your commitment is global and you have already made very concrete achievements, like the new Orchidée Impériale pack lightened by 60%. After 10 years, what are your greatest satisfactions?

    Sandrine Sommer - Internal mobilization and involvement, first. From the very beginning, we implemented an efficient collaborative organization with a “sustainable development” steering committee composed of 18 people from every department in the company. For sustainable development to be a project on the level of the whole company, with a real will to change and the right structure to do it, and for our employees to be the best ambassadors, it was essential for me to have all trades involved and get one referent per department. In addition, I am very proud of having brought up to date the Abeille bottles, making them indefinitely refillable, thanks to our perfume fountains. To me, the perfumer Guerlain concept embodies sustainable luxury. And we have great ambitions to gradually deploy the concept.

    Guerlain, luxury, cosmetics, sustainable development

    Premium Beauty News - What are your objectives for 2020?

    Sandrine Sommer - There are many of them, but they can be grouped into four main challenges: biodiversity preservation. We already work with sustainable sourcing players for Guerlain’s iconic raw materials. Also, we have made a lot of efforts for bee protection, in particular on Brittany’s Île d’Ouessant, and we are now developing our projects on the global level. The second challenge for us is ecodesign. It is probably one of the most complex. The idea is to make things as, or even more beautiful, while preserving the planet’s resources. We aim for 100% of our new products to be ecodesigned by 2020. Then, as far as climate is concerned, we have committed to reduce our CO2 emissions by half compared to 2007, for example by choosing maritime transport. Lastly, as regards social responsibility, definitely one of our own priorities, we support a global association dedicated to self-esteem: Look Good Feel Better. They offer women receiving cancer treatment free beauty workshops in hospitals. By 2020, we would like to be able to support them in all countries where Guerlain has settled.

    Premium Beauty News - How did the transition go with your suppliers?

    Sandrine Sommer - We worked together with the LVMH Perfume & Cosmetics branch to develop a responsible purchasing charter and define a number of guidelines that would help us make progress. The charter was co-set up with steering suppliers and is used as a working basis to go forward together, that was most important.

    Premium Beauty News - How did you make the notions of environmental protection and luxury match?

    Sandrine Sommer - They are not incompatible, there are actually matching elements between luxury and sustainable development that are almost natural, even consubstantial, in particular the notions of long periods of time, of the selection of rare and precious raw materials that require protection, or of know-how that needs to be passed on…

    On the contrary, it can be difficult to communicate, because we are aware of the fact that we are not exemplary yet – no one is. It is an issue on which we have been innovating on a daily basis. Many luxury companies have been working for a long time on this, but they do not make it public that much. Guerlain has only just started, but we still want to keep humble and sincere in how we do it. It is a continuous improvement process, a long, step-by-step building process, without compromising on the quality and prestige perceived with luxury houses.

    The “green” vision of sustainable development is behind us now. It is time to highlight beautiful, sustainable innovations to reconcile both. That is what the challenge involves.

    Premium Beauty News - Is your public ready to hear these arguments?

    Sandrine Sommer - The luxury public is getting increasingly sensitive to this. To our customers, it is just obvious, as long as you are a luxury brand, you should do things well. It is up to us to go farther and anticipate their questions and aspirations. For example, we have communicated on our rare, natural materials for long. Today, we are going further, by putting an emphasis on our commitment to protect biodiversity in light of these rare ecosystems.

    We have a prescribing, training role: it is up to us to raise customer awareness.

    Premium Beauty News - How are you going to communicate on this issue?

    Sandrine Sommer - Every year, we organize two events at Guerlain Champs-Élysées to put forward committed men and women. These players work on Sustainable Development on a daily basis. They come to share their experiences with a concerned public, my counterparts from different companies and industries, associations, all our stakeholders… It is a different way to communicate, but we do believe in the pollination of ideas and the strength of committed networks.

    [#LUXURYLAB] [NEWMARKET] | #Dolce & #Gabbana are #now in the #pasta #business | #STYLE

    DE BLOOMBERG | STYLE | http://bit.ly/2j3b5A6

    #Dolce & #Gabbana are #now in the #pasta #business

    In September, the iconoclastic Italian designer house Dolce & Gabbana sent a parade of food-oriented outfits down the runway at the Paris show for its Spring 2018 collection, including high-waisted, carrot-and-radish-printed pants, a ruffled dress emblazoned with cannoli, and a skirt printed with cans of tomatoes.

    Turns out, Stefano Gabbana and Domenico Dolce have food on their minds these days. Specifically pasta. This fall, the duo partnered with the venerable Italian pasta maker Pastificio di Martino to produce an extremely limited edition tin of pastas along with a D&G-designed apron. Only 5,000 of the tins will be available worldwide; fewer than 1,000 of those will be available in the US

    Di Martino has been in the pasta business since 1912; its product was the first pasta to cross the Panama Canal. It’s pastas are now available worldwide and account for annual revenue of more than US$163 million. In the US they’re available at Whole Foods.

    The family-owned company is based in Gragnano, in Naples, a town known for the pedigree of its dried pasta. Di Martino produces more than 9,000 tons of pasta a day in 125 different shapes, made from 100 per cent Italian durum wheat (low-priced Canadian wheat has been flooding Italy’s market). Its great chewy, nonsticky texture has been lauded by such organisations as Slow Food.

    Dolce & Gabbana, now, pasta business

    Dolce & Gabbana isn’t messing around with di Martino’s pasta recipe. It has designed the packaging for a handful of pasta shapes, along with that custom-designed apron. The engaging, limited-edition pasta wrappings are made for three shapes (spaghetti, the tubular paccheri, and penne mezzani rigate). The design features old-school southern Italian figures, such as a Sophia Loren-esque brunette holding a plate of tomato-sauced pasta, interspersed with brightly coloured tiles, and the tagline, “La Famiglia, La Pasta, e L’Italia!” (Translation: “Family, Pasta and Italy!”) Although the packaging evokes southern Italy, there are illustrations of landmarks from all over the country – including the Duomo of Milan, a Venetian canal, the Colosseum, and the Leaning Tower of Pisa.

    The tins will be available in Pasta Di Martino’s stores in Naples and Bologna and at Harrods in London. (Later in 2018, downtown New York will get its own di Martino store; the company is planning a major American expansion.) In the US, the tins will be sold online starting November 15 at dimartinodolcegabbana.com and available in select stores including Buonitalia in Chelsea Market in New York. The tins retail for about US$110. (For a preview of the apron, check out Stefano Gabbana’s Instagram feed.)

    This is just the first collaboration between the two independent Italian companies, according to Guiseppe di Martino, chief executive officer of the Pastifico di Martino and a fourth-generation pasta maker. “We have a two-year contract with them, but we have talked about 25,000 things, so this is just the beginning,” he says. “This is the first time ever in history that food and fashion have come together like this.” According to di Martino, his pasta will play a big part in D&G’s holiday display at Harrods.

    Meanwhile, pasta has announced itself in Dolce & Gabbana campaigns for straight fashion and beauty. In its recent ad for The One fragrance, Emilia Clarke dances around, then sits down to a bowl of spaghetti. You can’t see the package, but that’s di Martino pasta that the Game of Thrones star is eating. (The pasta figures even more prominently in a video taken immediately after D&G’s Spring 2018 Milan fashion show.)

    [#LUXURYLAB] [ECO] | #Clarins, #L’Oreal & Others Launch #Initiative to Improve #Beauty #Supply #Chain | @ENVIRONMENTAL LEADER

    DE JENNIFER HERMES | ENVIRONMENTAL LEADER | http://bit.ly/2zKQw5e

    #Clarins, #L’Oreal & Others Launch #Initiative to Improve #Beauty #Supply #Chain

    Clarins, Coty, L’Oreal and Groupe Rocher have joined with EcoVadis to launch the Responsible Beauty Initiative (RBI), a group that the companies say will accelerate social and environmental performance and progress throughout the beauty supply chain. EcoVadis, a provider of supplier sustainability ratings for supply chains, is working with the companies to ensure their suppliers have sound environmental business practices in place.

    The announcement comes at a time when few companies (just 15%) say they have total visibility into the environmental actions of their tier one and tier two suppliers (per an EcoVadis report published earlier this year).

    RBI is meant to help companies to boost environmental responsibility in their supply chains by:

    • driving a common understanding of sustainability performance across the industry
    • sharing best practices and processes
    • leveraging common tools to create efficiencies and benefits for suppliers

    The RBI is built on a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) rating platform, operated by EcoVadis, as a common foundation for supplier assessment and interaction. It will address the unique opportunities and challenges of the beauty industry global supply chains and will aim to drive the continuous improvement of sustainability practices, the companies say. The founding members will sign the charter to officially launch RBI and invite other companies and suppliers in the industry to join.

    Clarins, L'Oréal, Initiative, beauty, supply chain

    Nearly half (45%) of organizations say their sustainable procurement program covers most (75% or more) of their spend volume today, a significant jump from the 27% that reported the same in 2013, according to EcoVadis. Yet while supplier coverage has increased, depth of supply chain CSR visibility remains elusive: just 15% of organizations said they have complete supply chain visibility into the CSR and sustainability performance of both tier one and two suppliers, and only six% reported full visibility into tier three suppliers and beyond. This is the number one challenge today for sustainable procurement teams. “It is often further down in supply chains where the most significant risks lie, and the need to scale up programs to increase the depth of program visibility to the ‘long tail’ of global supply chains has never been more urgent,” the report stated.

    But companies looking for sustainable sourcing nirvana are making progress: The EcoVadis/HEC study also found that organizations collecting sustainability data are actively using the intelligence to guide sourcing decisions. By making CSR data a key factor in the sourcing process, organizations are incentivizing suppliers to be more sustainable and act more responsibly across the board.

    The report found that 97% of organizations place a high level of importance on sustainable procurement, continuing an upward trend seen in the last decade.

    #Hilfiger #Denim se rebaptise #Tommy #Jeans

    « Same Fits, Same Favourites, New Name ». A croire son slogan imaginé pour l'occasion, on pourrait croire qu'en changeant le nom de son label Hilfiger Denim en Tommy jeans, Tommy Hilfiger ne réalise qu'une action cosmétique.

    Mais avec cette évolution, la marque affirme au passage son ambition « de débloquer de plus grandes opportunités de croissance et d'avoir une attention plus grande pour une nouvelle génération de consommateurs ». Et Avery Baker, le Chief Brand Officer de Tommy Hilfiger, souligne que cette transition cible particulièrement les jeunes Millenials et la génération Z au niveau global.

    Tommy Hilfiger avait d'abord livré une capsule colorée avec le nom Tommy Jeans cet automne, jouant avec les archives de la marque. Cette fois, le nom s'impose à la place d'Hilfiger Denim pour la collection pre-spring 2018, même si les capsules héritage continueront d'être livrées.

    Hilfiger Denim, Tommy Jeans

    Cette première collection avec le nouveau nom est aussi bien moins classique que les précédentes propositions d'Hilfiger Denim. Le colorama est plus vif et volontairement, le lookbook présenté joue avec les codes du streetwear et s'amuse des empilements de couches.

    Hilfiger Denim est aujourd'hui proposée dans les magasins Tommy Hilfiger, mais aussi dans les grands magasins et dans les magasins spécialistes du denim, ou dans des réseaux généralistes. Tommy Hilfiger fait partie du groupe PVH Corp.
