  16. 16. Parallel Universes<br />Balance the controlled brand presence vs its social media personality<br />Reduce consumer confusion – full price one week, vast discounts online the next ?<br />
  17. 17. To E or not to E ?<br />Brands need to embrace e-commerce fully<br /> And understand it .<br />
  18. 18. Covert or Overt ?<br />Will there be fewer ostentatious brands and more ‘invisible’ luxury brands, unseen by the outside world but fully experienced by the Elite – in private.<br />
