  21. Se7en - Creative Powerpoint Template 21 LOW COST LUXURY High end brands are reaching out to Millennial consumers. image image The top luxury brands are entering new markets and redefining luxury. Take a look at Louboutin. A company that sells $675 shoes is now moving into the cosmetics market and creating $50 nail polish. Chanel has made a similar move with their new headphones. This trend indicates that these high-end luxury brands are finally trying to bait teen consumers with lower cost items that still provide the indulgence and elegance guaranteed by the brand. LOW COST LUXURY Consider… AIR BNB LUXURY RENTALS
  22. Se7en - Creative Powerpoint Template 22 LOW COST LUXURY High end brands are reaching Millennials like never before.

ABOUT US LOUBOUTIN Louboutin’s attempt to enter this Low Cost Luxury market and reintroduce luxury to the Millennial market is exemplified by the development of its $50 nail polish. But it’s also an interesting move because the product harkens back to the story of how founder Christian Loubitin first started his career as a designer. CHANEL Chanel has made an interesting move on social media and content creation. They have shifted the focus to their roots by, for instance, developing a series of short films emphasizing their founding - including one for Chanel’s 100th anniversary with Keira Knightley starring as founder Coco Chanel. LOUIS VUITTON Even though there has been speculation as to the decrease in popularity of luxury brands among Millennials, LV has still remained as one of the Top 20 most popular brands. And their efforts are clear with the recent launch of LV’s Nowness.com, which emphasizes exclusivity and aesthetics to cater more to the Millennial eye.

  24. Se7en - Creative Powerpoint Template 24 POWER GIRLS POWER GIRLS With the rise of girl power campaigns like #likeagirl, female anthems on the Billboard charts, and strong idols like Beyonce and Sheryl Sandberg, there is now a pathway that reaches women a bit more effectively. Building off of last year’s “Upping the Upworthiness” trend, more focus is being directed toward the mission of empowering girls and women in the US and around the world.   Girl Power will be the trend heading into the 2016 elections, and it will be a force to be reckoned with. - Tina Wells ❞ ❞ image Women and girls with power are coming out into the spotlight.
  25. Se7en - Creative Powerpoint Template 25 POWER GIRLS #LIKEAGIRL This campaign was a success on social media. These marketers took a simple, derogatory (but memorable) remark that every girl has heard… and then twisted with an adorable video. The popularity of this campaign is a testament to this trend to champion women and girls from all walks of life. BAD FEMINIST Walk into the closest book store and you’ll be greeted by best-selling books written by women, about women. Consider Roxane Gay’s Bad Feminist, Lena Dunham’s Not That Kind of Girl, and Amy Poehler’s Yes Please, just to name a few. #HEFORSHE After the powerful speech by Emma Watson as the United Nations Women Global Goodwill Ambassador, videos and voices of support came out for a new movement of solidarity centered on liberating women and men rather than just focusing on so-called “women’s issues.”. “WHO NEEDS FEMINISM” A couple years ago, a few students launched a simple media campaign that instantly caught on fire. It features men and women holding up a whiteboard that says “I Need Feminism because…” and allows them to fill in the blank with their personal reason. Women and girls with power are coming out into the spotlight.
