The event, hosted by Relaxnews, focused on the latest issues that brands are facing as well as editorial and business trends in the sectors of Luxury and Creation. With a panel of key fashion voices and luxury experts, the initiative of the session was to explore how brands twist the codes of luxury, through 3 axis : SENSE, SENSATIONS, SENSATIONAL.
Sense – From History to E-story : Split into three sections, the first portion of the seminar covered topics ranging from the value of selling a story at the heart of a brand, the importance of brand engagement, and how to speak to the digital generations.
Sensations – The New Models of Success : Paris Modes also heard on the latest new-comers in luxury entrepreneurship, trends in story-selling, and the emotion at the heart of new concepts.
Sensational – More is More is Less : A word about the new influencers, about the evolution of Fashion catwalks towards spectacular staging, and about the analysis of emotions.
Key learnings from the conferences
Brand Engagement: The importance of giving sense to your brand, including using history and past rules, was at the heart of the discussions between Seraphin Ducellier (Producer, Photograph and Founder of S75) and Jérôme Gautier (Director of Dior Editions).
Made in France: Journalist, blogger and fashion IT girl Samar Seraqui de Buttafoco shared the story of her new clothing line, “Das Mot,” and why her T-shirts are making a statement.
Luxury Retail Insights: Luxury is about risk taking. When you talk about personalization in the luxury field, it is about personalization of the customer relationship and not about the personalization of the product itself, stated Delphine Vitry (Co-founder and CEO of Mad Network, VP of the French Luxe).
Generation Z: How can brands speak to younger generations? Luxury experts Eric Briones (Co-founder of Paris School of Luxury) and Nadège Winter (Creative and Artistic Director of NWA) explored how to engage with GenZ consumers by discovering the behaviors of “digital” and “social” natives and the power of the “influence chain.”
Business with the new baby entrepreneurs : Edwin Sberro went through the creation of his magazine L’Exhibition while Christelle Kocher (Founder and Artistic Director of Koché) explained how she launched her brand to spread a message and to question the codes of the luxury word.
Influencers: According to a study done by Launchmetrics, “78% of fashion, luxury and cosmetics brands have put an influencer campaign strategy in place.” Those new ‘influencers’ are no longer celebrities: they are accessible people, relatable for their followers.”
