- Attention, Affluent Marketers: Please Watch Out For The Gap Between Millennials And Luxury
Wednesday May 3, 2017
Based on recent questions we have received about what’s really going on with Millennial consumers and their viewpoints on luxury and upscale products and services, werecently conducted a qualitative research study, “Millennials: Their Current and Future Need for Luxury,” in collaboration with The Luxury Marketing Council of Connecticut –Hudson Valley.
The exploratory study’s primary purpose was to lay the foundation for a more comprehensive understanding of Millennials' luxury-related passions, values,and buying habits in significant luxury and upscale markets. This study included both an online survey of 46 respondents and an in-depth, 90-minute focus group discussion with five accomplishedMillennials (all from the eastern United States), concentrating on the following two topics:
- How Millennials describe luxury
- Their current and future need for luxury products and services and their rationale for their outlook
More so than in the past, this keyaffluent demographic, upscale Millennials, described the word “luxury” using such negative terms as “expensive” and “unnecessary.” Also, some key attributes ofluxury in the minds of the older generations — Gen-Xers and Boomers — such as “exclusive” and “designer” were not as important, if at all, to many of theMillennials.
Given this scenario, brands that market to affluent and luxury consumers had better pay close attention to how Millennials view upscale and luxury products andservices. And when these less-than-positive descriptions come from Millennials — the future affluent consumers — how do they impact prospects for the affluent and luxury goods and servicesmarketplaces in the future?
This challenge is even more daunting since most Millennials in this exploratory study, when asked about their need for luxuries, answered that theydon’t need them. There were a few exceptions, as some respondents cited “quality” and “designer” as positive attributes of luxury. In addition, Chanel, Hermès, andRolls-Royce were all mentioned as notable and recognized luxury brands, so there is at least some name brand awareness among this younger generation.
Notably, though, in thissurvey, not one American brand was mentioned as being among the top luxury brands. That said, this overall lukewarm interest in luxury is a clear warning shot across the bow of the affluent and luxuryworlds, and its implications call for more innovative approaches to making a case for upscale and luxury products and services among Millennials … or that case may well be closed.

- This Vintage Airstream Will Be A Mobile Shop For Fair Trade Goods
By Eillie Anzilotti - Wednesday Jun 21, 2017
Fair trade brick-and-mortar stores are struggling, but maybe they’ll work better when they’re on the road.
On April 30, the Ten Thousand Villages fair trade store –stocked with things like shawls hand-woven in India and jewelry made by the Tuareg tribe in Niger–that had sat in Denver’s Cherry Creek North shopping center for over 35 years shuttered its doors. Founded in 1946 and the oldest fair trade supplier (even though the designation wasn’t formalized until 1958) in North America, the organization’s more than 75 retail outlets had faced a tough couple of years as e-commerce sales grew and more fair trade purveyors opened as competition; around 30 Ten Thousand Villages stores have closed since December 2016. The Denver community was devastated; loyal patrons flocked to the shop’s Facebook page to talk about how they loved visiting the store to buy gifts and support its mission of sourcing from 20,000 makers in 30 developing countries.
