New Trend Report

Luxury Futures 2023
Luxury Recrafted

In our digital times, exclusivity is arguably less exclusive and less excluding. Social media has flung open the doors of the once mystified inner workings of the luxury world. As a result, younger demographics are not intimidated – they see luxury as more approachable and accessible, despite the sustained price hikes orchestrated by brands in the industry. Younger Millennials and Generations Z and Alpha want more than a mere transactional relationship with luxury brands; they seek deeper connections and form organic communities of highly knowledgeable brand fans. What does this fundamental shift entail for the future of luxury?

The report unveils our new macrotrend, Luxury Recrafted and breaks down luxury sector analysis across key markets, case studies and consumer insights, including our new macrotrend, combined to help you understand and grasp business success in the years ahead.

The report is exclusively available to members of our trends intelligence and consumer foresight platform, LS:N Global. Book a meeting with our team below to learn more.

Luxury Recrafted

Luxury Recrafted introduces a vision of luxury where brands are stepping into the role of cultural leaders, setting trends and driving aspiration on a global scale. Yet, to meet the needs of its diversified audience, the sector is also expanding its range of offerings, blending traditional craftsmanship with digital innovations.

Innovation in luxury is certainly fast-tracked by behemoths like LVMH and Kering, but independent and emerging businesses are no less important in fostering new ideas that are redefining the sector. From tech trailblazers supercharging circularity in the industry to young labels such as AOI or services like Save Your Wardrobe, this macrotrend presentation spotlights the range of stakeholders that have a role to play in future-proofing luxury.

Guilded Luxury

As the world enters a new chapter of global uncertainty, luxury brands are seizing on safeguarding strategies to build long-lasting and enriching relationships with their clientele.

In this way, luxury brands are transforming into members’ clubs, with tiered levels of access offering different benefits and services, whether it’s private boutiques for the highest spenders or nonfungible tokens (NFTs) for the digitally driven that deliver early access to new or bespoke products.

In this presentation, which can be presented in-house or virtually, we explore the key shifts for the luxury and hospitality sector for 2023 and beyond.

Five States of Luxury

Understanding the fluctuating and sometimes fickle attitudes and expectations of their audiences has been a pursuit of luxury organisations over several decades. To help chart these shifts, The Future Laboratory’s proprietary Five States of Luxury framework gives businesses a unique tool to understand the behaviours and action responses to meet luxurians’ future needs now.

Our new Luxury & Hospitality Futures in-house presentation explores The Future Laboratory's refreshed and updated proprietary framework examining people’s emotional and psychological journeys through the luxury sector.
