The most popular luxury brands vary from cities to cities in China.

 

For example, in sophisticated luxury markets like Shanghai or Beijing, consumers have been exploring commonly known and lesser known brands over the past 5-6 years. However, this will not be the case in some entry level luxury markets like Xi'an.

 

This infographic made by Smithstreet China is illustrating Chinese fashionistas' favorite luxury brands in different cities in China, based on interview results of 300 luxury consumers throughout China .

Lunar New Year, Stellar number of travellers, as 5.2 M Chinese went overseas for shopping in the past week... | Asian India and Brazil Markets | Scoop.it

The China National Tourism Administration has predicted that the number of Chinese heading abroad during the holiday break will reach 5.19 million, a 10 percent year-on-year increase, driven by a stronger Yuan, favourable visa policies, increased wealth and demand for quality leisure time.

 

Spring Festival this year also marked the first time that outbound tourists had outnumbered those travelling at home, with 60 percent of Chinese tourists spending the holiday in foreign destinations.

 

Falling sales of luxury European brands in China due to the anti-corruption campaign contrasts with the lavish spending by Chinese tourists abroad. These tourists now account for 40 percent of luxury goods sales in France, 35 percent of such sales in Italy and 25 percent of luxury sales in Britain.

 

In Paris, 80 percent of Chinese tourists' spending was devoted to shopping.

 

Paolo de Cesare, chief executive officer of Parisian luxury department store Printemps, said: "In the 1970s, we had shoppers from the United States. In the '80s and '90s we had Japanese and in the early 2000s we had Russians. But for the past six or seven years, Chinese have been the main tourists shopping at Printemps". Forty percent of the company's sales comes from overseas visitors, who account for only 20 percent of its customers. Chinese customers make up 50 percent of those from overseas.

Samsung Asia's most valued brand

Samsung Asia's most valued brand | Asian India and Brazil Markets | Scoop.it
Korean brand gains on Apple in brand value.
retail watch's insight:

"Luxury brands, which have held sway over Asian consumers in recent years, did not enjoy the same level of positive movement as last year’s survey. The rankings of Chanel, Gucci and Prada remained unchanged.

Meanwhile, Dolce & Gabbana dropped 102 places, Armani nine, Hermes seven, and Louis Vuitton six. 

Notable upward movers include Versace (up 30 spots), Ralph Lauren (15), Bvlgari (nine), Christian Dior (five) and Burberry (one).

Domestic brands are gaining prominence across the region, although there is still a long way to climb to reach the heights of their global counterparts. 

Nine of the top 10 climbers this year were homegrown brands: 17 Tea (up 224 spots), Aeon (up 179), Mizuno (up 167), The Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ (up 164), Saizeriya (up 163), Sapporo (up 157), Gusto (up 150), Doutor (up 136) and Kuroneko Yamato (up 129)."
