In this vital read for those new to the industry as well as veterans planning for continued success, Erwan Rambourg identifies the major forces and emerging trends that will reshape luxury over the next decade. As the world recovers from the shocks of 2020, the expansion of Chinese consumption and the boost in women’s spending power around the world will fuel continued growth in the industry—but fundamental changes are on the horizon. The younger generation is entering the luxury market, bringing new values and demands that will redefine the very meaning of luxury.

“There has been an idea circulating for some time that when it comes to luxury, the U.S. is still a developing market. And while Erwan Rambourg, author of Future Luxe: What’s Ahead for the Business of Luxury, points out that that characterization isn’t exactly true to begin with, the pandemic may put the idea to rest for good.”
