First, understand the privilege of discussing luxury branding.
The poet Cesare Pavese pointed out that: “Every luxury must be paid for. And everything is a luxury, starting with being in this world"
Second, understand the business of romancing luxury:
The most successful luxury branding strategies:
- It is the mystique, the myths and the mastery.
- It is authenticity, preciousness and – for the best ones – humanity and purpose.
- It is captivating craft stories showing what thought and attention is put into sourcing the best, the newest, the oldest, the rawest materials.
- It is the artisans, artists all of course - in their studios, their ateliers, at their benches, in the vineyards, sketching, colouring, sewing, finishing, enamelling, smelling, touching, moulding, soldering.
- It is time.
- It is intense curiosity for the intricate nature of their product speciality, the potential of new different materials, and techniques.
- It is the desire for total perfection
- It is the unusual, the non-essential.
- It is brilliant expertise, outstanding precision, attention to detail and stunning finishes.
- It is quality only achieved by challenging the accepted rules.
- It is slight variations or mistakes. Hand-made can be better than machine-made.
- It is tapping into the innate desire we all have, to believe in something real.
- It is storytelling told with emotion, authenticity and humanity.
- It is recognising that when everything is like everything else there must be space for difference and space for beauty.
- It is spreading that good word through: luxury brand strategy, branding logo and identity, content creation, luxury websites, copywriting, market research and name creation
