How are luxury brands appealing to millennial consumers using digital platforms and storytelling?
The evolution of digital has completely changed the way users consume information. The millennial generation is quickly entering its prime in terms of spending power. In years gone by, the predominant channel for discovery was through a window display, then it was a brand's website and now its social media and influencers, especially when considering luxury brands.
As digital consultant Rachel Arthur says: “There’s no such thing [as just being] on social media. There’s an inherent need for both quality and relevance in what is posted, in order to get through to the right consumers at the right time. As a result, authenticity is paramount.”
Immediately brands can gauge what people like and they don’t, as Christopher Bailey references, the data gathered by the brand allows his team to understand how their products are received and what resonated most with their customers.

“If we want to thrive in retail then we have to think like consumers. They want to consume content, they want to interact with brands and products every single day and [luxury] retailers have to keep pace with this [...] Brands, no matter how big or small, need to get closer to their consumers; they need to understand their needs, what they like and, ultimately, what makes them ‘click’”.
Saverio Bianchi, Group Digital Director, L’Oreal.
“Customers want even more options with how they can view their products, experience the value online and then have them delivered”
