"Luxury, which is my world, has a very narrow channel of communication. It has great PR, great print and amazing stores. But it’s not really about digital. Ecommerce was seen as a threat. So much money and investment of resource and training has been put into these incredible flagship stores that luxury brands have been building around the world. So the idea of digital was seen as a real threat. Brands felt it was an impersonal channel to communicate the touch and the feel and the essence of their stores. You had to be able to feel the weight of the Rolex watch and appreciate the stitchery of the Birkin bag and digital wasn’t really doing that."
Come listen to Jonathan's mind-blowing presentation on " The future of Retail " at Fashion Startup Storm ...
