Luxury Strategy in action
A new book by two SKEMA Business School professors analyzes the latest trends in the luxury industry.
The luxury industry has changed dramatically over the last 10 years, becoming significantly more complex. The meaning of luxury and the sorts of customers that buy luxury have continually been evolving. With more potential consumers, the luxury sector is today healthier than ever and increasing at around three times the rate of worldwide wealth. In the light of these changes, luxury brands have had to completely rethink their strategies and rely on state-of-the-art marketing and management tools to help them keep up with consumers’ shifting expectations, desires and dreams.
Luxury Strategy in Action, a new book by Jonas Hoffmann and Ivan Coste-Manière of SKEMA Business School, presents the views of an international panel of industry experts on what luxury management means today, how it is evolving and what companies need to do to navigate these times of change. The book takes a strategic approach, analyzing the latest trends in the industry, such as the impact of online social networks and the role of emerging markets. It provides a multicultural and holistic perspective designed to create challengers to the established rules of the luxury industry.

SKEMA’s campus on the Léonard de Vinci university site will not only permit a closer relationship with the international companies located at La Defense (1500 companies including 15 among the top 50 in the world), but will also strengthen SKEMA’s development with a modern and comprehensive infrastructure.
