International Brands in China

mac-cosmetics-china-localise-luxury-crossover-collaboration

From time to time we post in support of the publications and sources we use to collect much of our material. This fits in with Aim2D’s purpose: to provide informative, educational materiel to help brands better understand the China market. However, despite the reference to lux in this weeks title, it isn’t just fashion or luxury brands that can benefit. Why?

If you know what we are going to say next please feel free to skip to the links at the bottom of this article. Otherwise, well, here goes. Let’s start by contentiously suggesting Luxury is relative. For example, if you have been lost in the desert for a week, not eaten, then a dead mouse may well be a luxury for you. So it may well be with your brand or service in China.

Not that we are suggesting your brand in China is a dead mouse! However, the fact that it is a foreign brand may, in the eyes of some consumers push it into a luxury sector. The possible additions of extra tariffs etc may also take it into the luxury price range. But by far the biggest reason for you, whatever your niche, to keep an eye on luxury in China is it serves as a bellwether. Very often, in China, where luxury goes, mainstream tends to follow.

So one of the resources we often refer to is The Luxury Conversation. As an example, this article on the topic of LOCALISATION in China- and others- although dated and written from a lux perspective is a perfect fit for any brand eyeing the China market. Please take a peek at this article:
The One Reason Luxury Brands Find Success or Failure in China: Localisation, complete with some nice examples to learn more and understand what we are saying.

Thanks for reading our China news, marketing, tech and social media article – we hope it was useful, relative, informative, valuable.
