  • [#PROMISE] [#LUXURYLAB] China's Factory Brands Threaten the Luxury Market #China #Luxury

    FROM JING DAILY | Ruonan SHENG | May, 14, 2018

    In China, who is and isn’t a copycat is open to interpretation.

    While many brands are actively struggling to clear counterfeit items from Chinese e-commerce sites, NetEase is now working directly with the manufacturers for brands like Gucci, Burberry, and Rimowa to produce unbranded items for its site, Yanxuan. They claim the quality of these items is the same as those from luxury brands, but at much lower prices.

    #Sales of #prestige #beauty #products up #4% in the #UK 

    Despite economic and political uncertainties, the UK prestige beauty market has grown by a steady 4% in 2017, according to The NPD Group. Makeup was the most dynamic category, followed by skincare and fragrance. Purchases from overseas visitors might explain a large part of the growth.

    Sales of luxury beauty products in the UK reported an increase of 4% in 2017, hitting the £3 billion mark (EUR 3.4 billion), unveiled The NPD Group. According to the market research firm, the growth was largely driven by strong performance in fragrance, make-up and skincare and by the interest from overseas shoppers.

    “The growth we have seen in the UK prestige beauty market is impressive, given the uncertainty with Brexit and the weak pound. British customers continue to purchase prestige beauty with great passion, and we also believe that an increase in global shoppers is a contributing factor to this growth, especially in super premium skincare and fragrance,” commented Helen Duxbury, Senior Account Manager, NPD UK Beauty.

    Healthy fragrance sales

    The prestige fragrance market was valued at £1 billion in 2017. Fragrance ended the year with a solid performance, increasing 3%, with both classic and new launches contributing to this growth. Consumers continue to choose juices over gift sets with the sale of gift sets remaining flat in 2017, with juices growing 4%.

    Skincare and makeup

    Skincare grew 6% in 2017 and this growth has been driven by classic and super premium brands. Although small at present, natural and vegan brands are demonstrating their importance to the skincare market’s growth.

    As far as make-up are concerned, sales increased by 6% compared to last year, but this slowed from the double-digit growth of 10% reported in 2016. Within the make-up sector, foundation and lip colour remain the star performing categories reporting healthy growth throughout 2017.

    “From the figures we have seen in 2017 there is a definite boom in the prestige beauty market. Make-up and super premium skincare are a real attraction for overseas visitors as they include many designer brands. Retailers confirm they have seen an increase in global shoppers in store. Whilst the weak pound confirms our thoughts that the global shopper is boosting the prestige beauty market, UK shoppers continue their love affair with prestige beauty in all categories,” concluded Helen Duxbury.

    #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.

    #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.
