Welcome to the future of luxury pricing

Your challenge

For high-end fashion & luxury brands, managing pricing across the global market has become increasingly challenging in the recent past.

Strategic pricing decisions are impacted by a range of factors, including:

  • Currency volatility
  • Local operating costs
  • Competitor pricing
  • Local consumer demand
  • Omni-channel operating models

Failure to manage price arbitrage across international markets can impact demand, margin and brand image.

As luxury consumers continue to become more mobile – digitally and physically – this challenge will continue to occupy front-of-mind for executives leading fashion and luxury brands.
