Our annual report on the global luxury sector combines detailed market analysis with a timely reconceptualisation of the notion of luxury. The decade we call the Turbulent Teens has brought unique pressures and opportunities to bear on the sector, and this report is your definitive guide to negotiating these for success in the years ahead.

With trend analysis, hard data and best-in-class case studies, we show how the luxury industry is shedding its monocultural past to keep up with a broader, better educated, mobile and culturally astute consumer base.
