    'Expensive' and 'exclusive' go hand in hand in consumer perception...via @lucasolca #ExaneBnp [#promiseconsulting-blog.com]

    MEASURING EXCLUSIVITY AND DESIRABILITY IN THE US - SEPTEMBER 2016

    Our recent research on Brand Desirability and Exclusivity in the USA (Measuring Brand Exclusivity and Desirability - USA), conducted with Promise Consulting, showed a near perfect correlation (R2 = 92%) between brands that consumers perceive as 'expensive' and brands seen as 'exclusive'. No other identity trait we have explored correlates so well.

    Press Release - Barometer @Promiseconsulting – @BNPExane : #Luxury Fashion #Brands in the #US #2016

    BAROMETER PROMISE – EXANE BNP : LUXURY IN THE USA 2016


    [ACCEDER A LA VERSION FRANCAISE DU COMMUNIQUE DE PRESSE]

    Promise Consulting Inc., an acknowledged consulting and market research firm, joins forces with Exane BNP, a key actor in the European financial market and a specialist in research and analyses for the European, Asian and American luxury sector, to publish the 3nd wave of the 2016 Promise – Exane BNP Barometer on "Exclusivity & Desirability of top luxury brands in the USA".

    This barometer classifies the 22 most known, purchased, exclusive and desired brands in the US in the universe of personal luxury goods (fashion). This year’s barometer was conducted amongst the wealthiest American women from the Industry Interviews ranking, Exane Paribas Estimates & Analysis (2015), who were interrogated on the categories ready-to-wear, handbags, shoes and accessories.

    With its macro vision of the American luxury market, the barometer establishes basically a section on the brands’ awareness, purchase and the brand image, with a focus on the notions of exclusivity and desirability.

    EXPERT OPINION

    luxury,usa,2016,barometer front row,exclusivity,desirability,aided awareness,penetration,market growth,china,france,promise consulting,exane bnp

    « The first two waves of the “Front Row” Barometer confirmed already the existence of an implicit hierarchy among top luxury brands and the others. Now, after France and China, the Barometer measured in its third year the exclusivity and desirability of top luxury brands amongst the wealthiest women in the US in the sector of women’s fashion (ready-to-wear, bags, shoes and leather accessories). The results outline that the Americans have a very special vision of luxury brands. Considering that Ralph Lauren occupying the first place in terms of penetration, followed by Chanel and Gucci, is not a surprise, the performance of Vera Wang is definitely noteworthy and needs to be emphasized: Indeed, the brand of the American fashion designer with Chinese roots, is ranked on 4th’s position, demonstrating therefore that the brand’s reputation now exceeds the world of wedding dresses, on which the designer brand from Now York initially based its fame, awareness and reputation.
    Prada, Versace, Louis Vuitton and Gucci occupy the top four ranks on exclusivity, which is proof enough - if proof was even needed - that the Italian fashion brands highly attract the US customers, while only Louis Vuitton manages to position itself on #3. Should we interpret this as the revenge of designer brands and family businesses as opposed to large international luxury groups? This special attachment to the founder’s personality is also reflected in the performance of Ralph Lauren, who ranks second in desirability despite not claiming to exclusivity. In order to qualify our statement, we need however to recognize the resilience of Louis Vuitton (3rd in exclusivity and 1st in desirability). The flagship brand of LVMH confirms and even strengthens its position on these two criteria that the brand had already obtained in our last two barometers, China and France. Therefore, Mr. Bernard Arnaud’s objective to make "Louis Vuitton, the most desirable brand in the world" does not seem out of reach. While occupying an excellent 3rd place in desirability (behind Louis Vuitton and Ralph Lauren), Chanel receives in terms of exclusivity a surprising 10th place from the wealthiest female customers in the USA, which is in particular due to the perception gap between the brand’s younger and older clients. The brand reveals itself to be less consensual in the US than elsewhere on this criterion.

    METHODOLOGY

    The PROMISE – EXANE BNP "EXCLUSIVITY AND DESIRABILITY" Barometer has an international vocation and is renewed and published every year in several countries and on several luxury product in the universe of fashion and cosmetics (« soft luxury »). Both measured criteria – DESIRABILITY and EXCLUSIVITY – are based on a general model consisting of 24 key indicators which measure a brand’s performance from a customer’s point of view (« customer-based brand value »). This model, - called Monitoring Brand Assets®- is marketed by Promise Consulting for its numerous  clients in the sector of Fashion, Beauty and Distribution, who use the methodology in order to establish their marketing plans and measure their brand’s performance and return on investment (ROI).

    > Collection method: Online Access Panel
    > Period of data collection : June 2016
    > Country : USA
    > Univers : Luxury (prêt-à-porter, handbags, shoes, accessories, etc.)
    > Sample : 750 adult women (25-54 years old)  with a monthly household income of + 12 500$
    > Theme : BAROMETER PROMISE - EXANE BNP : LUXURY IN THE USA 2016
    > List : 22 evaluated brands
    > Measured indicators : Awareness, Penetration, Brand Image, Exclusivity and Desirability

    DESIRABILITY
    The brand desirability index is based on the brands which the respondents recognized among the presented ones. The desirability is measured according to the Likert scale with 7 points (and converted afterwards into an index), among the respondents who consider the brand as "ideal / close to their ideal" and those who think the brand is " not ideal / far from their ideal." It is then presented as the percentage of respondents who opted for the top 2 of the Likert scale, the notes 6 or 7. This scale was tested on its robustness, validity and reliability in an international and multicultural context.

    EXCLUSIVITY
    The brand exclusivity Index is constructed thanks to the brands which the respondents recognized among the presented ones. The exclusivity is measured according to a Likert scale with 5 points, increasing from “more accessible” to “more exclusive”. Such as for the desirability, the exclusivity score is equally converted into an index based on the % of respondents, who attributed the notes 5 or 4. This scale was tested on its robustness, validity and reliability in an international and multicultural context.

    USA : 1ST LUXURY GOODS MARKET DESPITE ITS LOW GROWTH AT CONSTANT EXCHANGE RATES

    A GLOBAL MARKET VALUE OF €237 BN ON PERSONAL LUXURY GOODS
    The global market for luxury consumer goods accounts for € 237 billion and represents therefore the second most important segment after luxury cars (€ 379 billion) and hotels (€ 165 billion), which is equivalent to nearly one quarter (24%) of the amount spent in all categories of the luxury sector together. (Source: Luxury Goods Worldwide Market Study, Bain, 2016).

    Global market value, luxury goods market, 2015

    USA: 1ST GLOBAL MARKET
    Considering the entire market of luxury consumer goods, the USA is ranked on the first place with almost 79 billion euros purchase (2014). The USA imposes itself on the other countries and is therefore far ahead of Japan (€ 20 billion), China (€ 18 billion), Italy and France (€ 17 billion). If growth remains important, the latter was since 2014 essentially due to exchange rate differentials between the dollar and the euro, wherefore the growth at constant exchange rates is zero.

    USA, first global market, luxury, countries

    USA: 2ND MOST IMPORTANT CONTRIBUTER TO THE MARKET GROWTH
    With their purchases on luxury consumer goods, US citizens have contributed between 2012 and 2015 to nearly a third of the growth in this market, wherefore the USA can be considered as the market growth’s second contributor, right after China. (Source: Bain & Co, Altagamma, Exane BNP Paribas analyses & estimates).

    USA, Contributer to market growth, Bain & Co

    DIGITAL AND LUXURY IN THE USA, A CONTRADICTION? NOT AT ALL!
    Today it is a fact that the luxury market exists beyond the boundaries of physical point of sales. For example, YOOX NET- A- PORTER GROUP is the perfect illustration of this trend. Thus, 49 % of the respondents claim having already bought luxury consumer goods online, either several times or at least once, while 28 % are planning on doing so very soon. (Source : Promise Consulting / Exane BNP).

    A MATCH BETWEEN ITALIAN AND FRENCH BRANDS UNTER THE ARBITRATION OF RALPH LAUREN

    AIDED AWARENESS: « FRATELLI D'ITALIA »
    The graphic on the left visualizes that 5 Italian brands are positioned among the top 10 ranking in terms of aided awareness, while only 3 French brands managed to do so. Gucci is clearly the winner in this category and benefits from an excellent media coverage accompanied by the faultless direction of the young Alessandro Michele.
    Although, during the financial year 2015-2016, the sales of Ralph Lauren fell by almost 3%, to 6.3 billion euros, the brand does not suffer from notoriety issues. In terms of notoriety the brand occupies position No. 2 and remains an industry benchmark in its country of origin.

    aided awareness, FRONT ROW Barometer, luxury USA, 2016, Promise Consulting

    In fact, wasn’t it the US Olympic team which was dressed in blue-white-red by Ralph Lauren at the opening and closing ceremonies of the Olympics in Rio? The arrival of Ralph Lauren’s new executive director Stefan Larsson, former head of Old Navy, will definitely encourage new strategies and marketing approaches for the iconic American brand. Chanel is ranked on the third position of the podium with the brand’s new muse Lily-Rose Depp (as it was already her mother) and saves therefore the honor of the French luxury houses. Finally, we note the emergence of Vera Wang on the 8th position in this ranking, who is well known as a specialist of wedding dresses, including the one of Sex and the City-star Carrie Bradshaw. In this ranking Internet purchases do not disrupt brand awareness, but confirms rather that online shoppers know more brands and that luxury becomes more attracted to digital media which involves the customers, making them even sharper concerning their knowledge of the brands in this sector.

    PENETRATION AND AIDED AWARENESS STAND INDEED IN RELATION TO EACH OTHER
    With a cumulative penetration of 63%, Ralph Lauren takes the lead on its national market. Far behind, with 43%, Chanel monopolizes the second position followed by Gucci with 41%. In the universe of women’s luxury fashion, the most well-known brands are consequently also the most purchased ones (the podium remains the same, only the order is reversed here).

    Finally, Vera Wang has wind in her sails and occupies with a cumulative penetration of 38% the bottom of the podium: the position of the New York designer with Chinese origin illustrates that the brand’s popularity goes far beyond the world of wedding dress, on which the designer initially established her image and reputation.

    EXCLUSIVITY : ITALIAN DESIGNERS ADHEAD OF THE FRENCH HAUTE COUTURE HOUSES

    By definition, exclusivity is associated with a unique know-how, a recognizable style and a creative and talented bias which can ultimately claim a higher price. In the collective unconscious, the French Haute Couture houses occupy therefore a special position, as we have already revealed in previous barometers, for China and France in particular.

    USA & EXCLUSIVITY: LOUIS VUITTON SURROUNDED BY ITALIAN DESIGNERS
    The exclusivity ranking (on the right) reveals clearly that the wealthiest American clients measure and perceive exclusivity according to other criteria than the French interrogated women did in particular in 2015 during the 1st wave of the barometer Promise – Exane BNP. Highly valuating the personality of the founders, as well as the creativity and personality of the artistic directors, the Americans classify two Italian brands before France’s first luxury house Louis Vuitton and far before the two French icons, Chanel and Dior.

    With its cultural patronage, sports sponsorship with the Louis Vuitton America's Cup World Series, and as newest member of the exclusive club Swiss watch houses, and through the launch of its new fragrances ... Louis Vuitton chooses a dynamic and diverse business strategy and communication, of which Uncle Sam’s country absolutely benefits. Meanwhile, Hermès, Chanel and Dior are positioned further back in the ranking.
    Flat for Hermès and Chanel, two statutory brands par excellence, which yet perform better among young American consumers (25-40 years) and which occupy the 4th and 5th position with the respectively scores of 75% and 74%.

    Exclusivity, Luxury, USA, 2016, Promise Consulting, Prada, versace, Louis Vuitton

    USA : A MARKET APART
    If the Italian luxury brands clearly occupy the US market on exclusivity, the French luxury houses - embodied by the "Big Four", Hermés, Louis Vuitton, Chanel and Dior - remain a reference in France and China. Design, creativity, heritage, tradition, brightness, quality manufacturing, strong media coverage and the notion of “Made-in-Italy” is a huge success in the USA. Hereby we emphasize on the fact that Gucci, to a 100% owned by the French group Kering, Prada, Versace and Armani are 100% Italian brands.

    USA, market differences, China, France, Luxury, 2016, Promise Consulting

    DESIRABILITY: A RANKING WHERE FRANCE CLEARLY TAKES THE LEADERSHIP

    While the American wealthiest customers fall in terms of exclusivity under the spell of the Italian designers Prada or Versace, both brands sacrifice their positions in desirability. Thus, Louis Vuitton (40%) occupies the top step of the podium, closely followed by Ralph Lauren (39%) on its domestic market, and Chanel (39%), the symbol of French luxury.
    Note also that Burberry rises on the 4th place (35%) due to its activeness on social networks such as Pinterest and Snapchat. Finally, Vera Wang, the New York specialist in dresses, monopolizes the 5th place (35%). On the other hand, Italian brands emerge not until the 6th position.
    France, USA, UK and Italy ... Considering the American melting pot in terms of demography, the Top 10 ranking on "desirability" saw the emergence of luxury brands from these four different countries.

    The high-end luxury brands are catching on in China [#promise #fashion #luxury]

    Some say that when China sneezes the rest of the world catches cold, but the high end luxury brands are catching on in China, becoming the most exclusive and desirable ones in fashion according to the wealthiest Chinese women.

    Still, our ranking also reveals a stronger competition that is accentuated by the wealthy customers’ increasingly stronger maturity.

    This barometer Promise Consulting / BNP Exane classifies the 15 most exclusive and desirable brands in China in the universe of feminine Fashion. This Barometer is conducted amongst the wealthiest Chinese women, and is about the 30 luxury brands in ready-to-wear/handbags/shoes/accessories that have invested the most in communication (source: Industry Interviews, Exane Paribas).

    Promise and BNP Exane already conducted the same survey amongst French wealthiest women in May 2015 (see: http://bit.ly/1ESTZGu).

    This barometer in association with BNP Exane reflects our determination to move closer to the marketing and cross-section financial analysis. Our Monitoring Brand Assets® approach itself features very complementary analyzes with those conducted by BNP Exane’s experts. Hence, the obtained results from our joined barometer are based on two different angles of expertise, marketing and financial, which brings a unique added value to the managers and decision-makers in the Luxury sector. More concretely, our measure of the exclusivity of a brand takes into account the upper and more constant quality of products, the strong and unique valuation of the customer, the brand’s prestige, but also a matchless “savoir-faire” that justifies a very high price premium associated with top luxury.

    "Finally, our measure of desirability synthesizes the dimensions of attractiveness of an intimate, social and symbolic nature, which are the strengths of exclusive brands, and characterize the particular relation that they maintain with their customers. In this respect, our Barometer synthesizes, in two proven scales, the numerous criteria to establish a ranking between the high-end brands from their customer’s point of view", states Pr. Philippe Jourdan, Promise’s CEO.

    Exclusivity and desirability go hand in hand for China’s wealthy, with the same brands ranked in the top five for both characteristics in a new study by Promise Consulting and BNP Exane. Hermès takes home top prize for exclusivity, which measures the consistent quality of goods, the brand’s prestige, the valuation of the brand’s customers and its ability to justify a high price point. Chinese consumers are generally becoming more sophisticated luxury consumers, making for tougher competition between labels for their attention and affection.

    Promise Consulting and BNP Exane’s “Exclusivity and Desirability Barometer” surveyed 600 women among the top 3 percent of households in China in September 2015, asking them about the 30 brands across ready-to-wear, footwear, leather goods and accessories which have made the most investments in communication in the market. This is a follow-up to a survey of French women conducted in May 2015.

    Unicità, qualità e design spingono i brand in Cina. Hermès, Chanel e Prada tra i top

    Il tempo per sé, il rispetto per l'ambiente, l'unicità di un oggetto: la definizione di “lusso” può essere la più personale, ma difficilmente non includerà due aspetti, l'esclusività e la desiderabilità. Due concetti che i brand dell'alta gamma, come alchimisti, cercano di combinare in un equilibrio perfetto, armonizzando due necessità, quella di produrre sogni e ricavi. “Measuring Brand Exclusivity and Desirability - China ” è proprio il nome di un report pubblicato da Promise Consulting e da Bnp Exane, cha indaga quali sono i brand del lusso più esclusivi e desiderabili in Cina, mercato chiave dell'alta gamma: il campione preso in esame è stato di 607 donne fra i 18 e i 54 anni, residenti della Mainland China (che comprende Great China e Hong Kong), con un reddito medio mensile superiore a 20.000 yuan, (circa 2.700 euro), cifra elevatissima se si considera che il reddito medio dei cittadini cinesi nel 2015, secondo il China Statistics Bureau, è stato di 21.996 yuan all'anno.

    Louis Vuitton’s positive Chinese placement a result of slow, steady growth

    In the short term, French apparel and accessories brand Louis Vuitton is on pace to have the best momentum among luxury houses during the Year of the Monkey, per Exane BNP Paribas.

    Exane BNP Paribas’ “Chinese Luxury: The Year of Monkey Business” report looks at the current economic climate of China and how the slowdown is impacting luxury brands with a presence in the Mainland and Hong Kong markets. While many brands are concerned regarding the slowdown in Chinese spending, the financial firm suggests that growth for 2016 will match the year-ago.

    THESE LUXURY BRANDS ARE BEST AT BALANCING EXCLUSIVITY AND DEMAND IN CHINA

    How do Chinese women really feel about that next big luxury collection out on the market? Exane, a France-based investment company, has attempted to answer this question with a quantitative analysis of the Chinese shopper’s true desires when it comes to purchasing luxury brands.

    The primary findings aren’t news per se, at least according to most market reports. They reveal that luxury stalwarts like Chanel, Dior, and Hermès are what Chinese shoppers think about most when they go to sleep at night—it’s not surprising, then, that Apple looked to Hermès’ timeless leather designs for its latest wearable tech collaboration that attracted droves of China’s fashion-savvy.

    Enquête : L’Exclusivité et la Désirabilité des marques de luxe en 2015

    Les résultats d’une grande enquête sur le luxe viennent d’être révélés par le cabinet Promise Consulting. Ce baromètre réalisé en partenariat avec BNP Exane a rapproché la vision marketing et la vision financière et porte sur 15 marques de luxe dans l’univers de la mode.

    Chanel remporte tous les suffrages dans les deux études
    « Le raffinement de ses collections de Haute Couture, le succès de ses collections Croisière et Prêt-à-porter, l’hommage rendu aux Métiers d’Art dans une ville différente chaque année, l’investissement dans le domaine de la Haute Joaillerie depuis 1987 participent à l’ascension de la marque au tout premier plan. Ce résultat n’est donc pas surprenant et récompense un investissement conséquent, cohérent, maintenu dans la durée et très qualitatif » explique Philippe Jourdan, CEO de Promise Consulting.

    Chanel most desirable brand among Chinese affluents [#China #luxurydaily #chanel]

    By

    Exclusivity and desirability go hand in hand for China’s wealthy, with the same brands ranked in the top five for both characteristics in a new study by Promise Consulting and BNP Exane.

    Hermès takes home top prize for exclusivity, which measures the consistent quality of goods, the brand’s prestige, the valuation of the brand’s customers and its ability to justify a high price point. Chinese consumers are generally becoming more sophisticated luxury consumers, making for tougher competition between labels for their attention and affection.

    Promise Consulting and BNP Exane’s “Exclusivity and Desirability Barometer” surveyed 600 women among the top 3 percent of households in China in September 2015, asking them about the 30 brands across ready-to-wear, footwear, leather goods and accessories which have made the most investments in communication in the market. This is a follow-up to a survey of French women conducted in May 2015.

    Ranking order
    In exclusivity, Hermès indexes 162, placing it well above the average 100 of the top 15 brands. Aside from Prada, which placed fourth, the rest of the top five is dominated by French houses, with Louis Vuitton in second, Chanel following and Dior in fifth.

    Paris May 18th 2015 - In association with BNP Exane, a leading actor of the financial market in Europe and a recognized specialist of research and cross-section analysis on the European equities, Promise, consulting and market research firm, publishes the results of the 1st wave of the Barometer Promise - BNP Exane "Luxury and Desirability 2015". This barometer classifies the 15 most exclusive and desirable brands in France in the sector of Fashion. This Barometer is established with the wealthiest women and consists of ready-to-wear clothing, bags, shoes and accessories brands stemming from the ranking Industry Interviews,Exane Paribas Estimates & Analysis (2014).

    "This barometer in association with BNP Exane translates our will to move closer to the marketing and cross-section financial analysis. Our approach Monitoring Brand Assets® itself complements analyses led by BNP Exane’s experts. The results obtained from our joint barometer based on two different angles of expertise, marketing and financial, bring a unique added value to the managers and decision-makers in the Luxury sector. More concretely, our measure of the exclusivity of a brand takes into account the superior and more constant quality of products, the strong and unique valuation of the customer, the prestige of the brand, but also a matchless savoir-faire that justifies a very high price associated with luxury. Finally our measure of desirability synthesizes the dimensions of attractiveness, intimate, social and symbolic order which are the strengths of exclusive brands and the particular relation that they maintain with their customers. In this respect, our Barometer synthesizes in two proven scales the numerous criteria to establish a classification between the high-end brands from the point of view of their customers” states Pr Philippe Jourdan, Promise’s CEO.

     

    IN BRIEF

     EXCLUSIVITY

    • Chanel 1st brand on the luxury criterion with the wealthy Frenchwomen.
    • In 2nd and 3rd place, Christian Dior and Louis Vuitton are neck and neck.

    DESIRABILITY

    • Chanel is the most desirable brand in the world of fashion.
    •  In 2nd place, Louis Vuitton confirms the legitimacy of its upmarket move.
    • The Italian brands opt for seduction to stand out.
    • Burberry is ranked 6th on the most desirable brand scale (11th on high-end luxury).

     

     EXCLUSIVITY: FRENCH BRANDS AT THE TOP OF REFINEMENT

    The wealthiest French women agree on one point: the high-end luxury remains the privilege of France. In the ranking of the 15 high-end luxury brands, national brands monopolize the 5 first ranks in the heart of French women. The first rank is occupied by Chanel, followed by Christian Dior, Louis Vuitton, then Yves Saint Laurent and Hermes (cf. table 1).

    TABLE 1: THE 15 MOST LUXURY BRANDS IN FRANCE

    (basis: wealthy women only)

     brand,bnp,exane,promise,fashion,desirability,exclusivity,luxury,high-end

    Brands classified on the mark of 5 on a scale of 1 to 5 then translated into index.

     

    brand,bnp,exane,promise,fashion,desirability,exclusivity,luxury,high-endChanel takes the lead of the classification in 2015 in the world of fashion (ready-to-wear clothing, bags, shoes and accessories). The brand deserves this crowning as a result of an exceptional development in Haute Couture, ready-to-wear, bags, accessories, jewelry and fragrances.

    The refinement of its collections of Haute Couture, the success of its collections Croisières and Ready-to-wear clothing, its tributes to Art Craftmanship in different cities every year and the investment in the field of the High-end Jewelry since 1987 all drive the ascent of the brand at the forefront. This result is thus, not surprising and rewards a consequent, coherent, qualitative and long term investment" according to Philippe Jourdan.

    brand,bnp,exane,promise,fashion,desirability,exclusivity,luxury,high-endRanked 2nd and 3rd, Christian Dior and Louis Vuitton are very close in terms of index. "Through Christian Dior Couture, French women express their attachment to a typical French brand to  which they recognize undeniable qualities: the search for excellence, passion, innovation, but also an exacerbated artistic sensibility of its Artistic Directors. It is moreover the same qualities so often associated with the French temperament that also explain the excellent 4th place detained by Yves Saint Laurent in our ranking. Regarding Louis Vuitton's 3rd position, it dedicates a very influential brand in the field of the luxury which it intends to sustain while pursuing a strategy of increased selectivity and significant  upmarket move", comments Philippe Jourdan.

     

    DESIRABILITY: ITALIAN BRANDS PLAY THE CARD OF SEDUCTION

    "Luxury and love, respond to the same logic. A luxury brand has to arouse the desire which inevitably creates an expectation for the so long desired object. If the outcome of a loving quest sometimes kills desire, a luxury brand by permanently reinventing itself creates the mechanisms for a maintained desire. It seemed important to us to measure the desirability of 15 big luxury brands stemming from our Barometer, especially as our model Monitoring Brand Assets demonstrates that the desirability such as we measure it is the main driver of a brand's growth in France and in the world. We bring our customers the key to make their brands more desirable because we are convinced that desirability is the stake for tomorrow’s big luxury brands" (Philippe Jourdan). 

    Remember that desire benefits from recognition from others. The size of desire is thus of intimate order (quest of oneself), but also social (the relation with others). Desirability is thus a matter of subtle balance which the brands have to feed in respect for their fundamentals. "For what we try to measure through desirability is the closeness, which is a matter of physical appearance but also mystic between a brand and its public, the carnal and spiritual fusion to which contribute products, services, image, values and type of relations which the brand builds with its public", declares Philippe Jourdan.

    brand,bnp,exane,promise,fashion,desirability,exclusivity,luxury,high-endChanel is the most desirable brand in the world of fashion (ready-to-wear , bags, shoes and accessories) for the wealthiest French women. Chanel achieved a flawless performance in 2015 by being approved by a large majority of French women as the most desirable big luxury brand. "Chanel’s desirability is based on several pillars: on one hand, the high quality of its products and its exclusive character conferred by its endorsement by world-famous personalities’. But Chanel's desirability is much more than that: the feeling still shared today that the brand liberates women, participating even today to their emancipation through the diversion of the male and female codes for example. It is still with regards to this aspect that the brand is incredibly modern. This diversion of codes is not limited to the gender, as shown by the ease with which the mark communicates in Asia and in America" underlines Philippe Jourdan.

    TABLE 2: THE 15 MOST DESIRABLE LUXURY BRANDS IN FRANCE

     (basis: wealthy women only)

    brand,bnp,exane,promise,fashion,desirability,exclusivity,luxury,high-end

    Brands classified on the mark of 6-7 on a scale of 1 to 7 then translated into index.

     

    Louis Vuitton is ranked 2nd on desirability. The ambition of the LVMH Group is to make the brand with the famous monogram the most desirable one in the world, a strategy that the CEO passes by as "an adjustment of its growth". "The upmarket move and the price increase of the bag collections Vivienne, Capucine or W contribute to a strengthened exclusivity adds to the desirability of the brand” (Philippe Jourdan).

    brand,bnp,exane,promise,fashion,desirability,exclusivity,luxury,high-endThe third learning from our Barometer - but not the least - is that the Italian brands opt for seduction to stand out in desirability. The Italian brands make a remarkable breakthrough in our ranking. The French leaders of the LVMH and Kering groups take the right steps by multiplying contacts with the leaders of these brands (some of which they already possess). Salvatore Ferragamo is classified 3rd in terms of desirability, the brand managed to stand out in leather craft (bags and shoes) thanks to high-quality products, which are also elegant and discreet. The seduction of the Italian famous shoemaker of the Hollywood stars operates in the heart of French women. It is also the case for Giorgio Armani, Gucci, Fendi and Versace, which join the circle closed of the 10 most desirable brands. "Italy has a ancient and derserved tradition in luxury, whether it is in leather craft or in shoes. But ready-to-wear clothing is not outdone and does not conjugate only in men. Evening dresses, dresses for ceremony, classic or trendy female suits, Italian workshops for ready-to-wear clothing are a reference regarding design, materials and finishes. French women do not make a mistake there." (Philippe Jourdan).

    brand,bnp,exane,promise,fashion,desirability,exclusivity,luxury,high-endFinally Burberry - ranked 11th on the criterion of very big luxury – is ranked 6th on desirability. Recently classified as a luxury brand, the famous tartan brand, Burberry, pursues its conquest of Parisian hearts. "If the Parisian culmination was the partnership with Le Printemps during Christmas, it is in fact the consecration of the thorough work of Angela Ahrendts and Christopher Bailey on the collections, communication, digital, but also on its flagship's architecture, as illustrated by the famous Flagship store of 56 Faubourg Saint-Honoré" (Philippe Jourdan).
