Our resident millennial example is 26 and a law graduate, although she currently works in fashion and lives with her parents on the lower north shore. She’s digitally savvy and uses her smartphone to do more than just communicate. She almost lives through it, shares her luxury experiences with it, and in doing so enjoys them even more.

When it comes to Luxury Connection, our millennial cares more about what luxury brands say about her than the goods themselves. She is all about making a statement, creating an experience, building social capital and making an emotional connection to her favoured celebrities or influencers and their incredible lives.

This is why we call those like her the Luxury Re-inventors

The shopping experience for Luxury Re-inventors largely involves online shopping and mostly by mobile – as long as it’s a trusted brand. However, when they do shop in-store, they expect some type of unique reward. This is because they feel the actual spending experience outweighs the desirability of the object itself.

So what does that mean for brands targeting this audience? Quite simply, optimal mobile sites are key. It also means key opinion leaders are important to form part of the brand story – whether they’re celebrities, influencers or authoritative media brands. Brand stories must also deliver extraordinary experiences good enough to share.

The News Prestige Network can help you connect with luxury millennials just like our resident example, or as we call them Luxury Re-inventors. In fact, we reach 85% of them.
