LUXURY GOODS

We are fully aware of the specific requirements of the companies in this sector, typified by the need to preserve their image, the authenticity and excellence of their products and services, and the prestige of the brand that identifies and distinguishes them.

These needs call for a well defined strategy based on exclusivity and selectivity in every one of the company's actions and over the entire lifecycle of the luxury goods or services, from the very moment of their conception, throughout their advertising and marketing campaigns, and during after-sales service.

We also know from experience the importance of adapting the particular characteristics of the sector to market evolution and globalisation, which, among numerous other aspects, entails the compulsory use of new technologies as a channel for communication and marketing, the formalising of selective or exclusive agreements with local companies, and defending the company against third party actions that could, in one way or another, harm the image of its products or services.

In view of these characteristics, specialized and customized advice is required, consistent with the commitment to innovation, excellence and endeavour that defines these companies.

Among our clients are a diversity of companies belonging to the luxury goods sector, offering items for personal use (fashion, accessories, cosmetics, watch making, jewellery, leather goods) and goods and services in other segments of the market (wine, catering, furnishings, vehicles, etc.).
