Book Description

Noted experts offer invaluable insights into the glamorous world of luxury retail

Luxury Retail Management is your gold-plated ticket to the glamorous world of luxury retail. Defining all the tools that are necessary to manage luxury stores, from the analysis of location and design concept, to the selection, training, and motivation of the staff, the book covers everything you need to know to enter, expand, understand, and succeed in the world of luxury retail. Reaching the luxury customer is no longer the domain of the exclusive salon—the global luxury market boom and the phenomenal growth of luxury stores now views the retail sector as key to driving brand profitability. In dealing with this rapid change, luxury brands have experienced a steep learning curve and accumulated bags of retail expertise. And while some of the luxury retail rules and models in this book are exclusive to the luxury market, many have lessons for the whole retail sector.

  • Examines the essential aspects of luxury customer relationship management, personal sales, and the customer experience
  • Delves into the sophisticated business models that luxury brands have developed based on a mix of directly-operated-stores and wholesale
  • Covers the management essentials—distribution, location, design, merchandising, pricing, brand promotion, and the management agenda for success

Written by respected experts Michel Chevalier and Michel Gutsatz, who lend their solid academic credentials and professional expertise to the subject, Luxury Retail Management asks and answers the questions that retail professionals need to understand in order to thrive in the luxury market.

Product Description

From the Inside Flap

The relationship between luxury brands and the people who buy them is different from any other commercial transaction but the way that the two interact is changing rapidly. Twenty–first–century customers are increasingly looking for a more personalized experience, moving away from big department stores toward dedicated boutiques that offer an intimate retail experience. The times may be changing, but with this change comes an unprecedented opportunity for growth. Luxury Retail Management: How the World′s Top Brands Provide Quality Product and Service Support contains everything you need to move your brand forward and thrive in the harsh new economy.

Answering the questions anyone working with luxury brands is asking from "Where do I set up my store?" to "How can I build customer loyalty?" authors and luxury brand management experts Michel Chevalier and Michel Gutsatz identify and address the key issues facing luxury products today. Packed with information on internet sales, setting retail pricing, advertising, and much more, the book also includes a "tool box" of techniques for managing a prestigious store.

Luxury retailing is a world unto itself, and resources on the concepts, procedures, and techniques that govern it are scarce. Presenting a holistic strategy designed to help you win over your customers before they ever set foot in your store, Luxury Retail Management covers everything executives, managers, and retail staff need to know in order to enter, expand, understand, and succeed in the world of luxury retail.

This book is an excellent resource for luxury professionals and intriguing reading for luxury aficionados alike."
Thomas Lindemann, Group HR Director, Richemont International

"The retail dimension is fundamental for luxury branding.

4.0 out of 5 stars Most up to date book on luxury retailing 17 Aug. 2012
By Wilson Chan - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is the most up to date book on luxury retailing which can turn amateurs into pros, and pros into luxury experts. While most readers, including myself, may be tempted to dive straight into the retail operations details, do pay special attention to the authors' sequential approach to this subject matter: brand - supply chain - distribution models, and only then retail operations.

I found the book realistic, tangible and useful, not only explaining abstract theories, but often supporting theory with interesting examples.
