Fashion giants like Louis Vuitton and Bulgari have their sights set on the hospitality industry, and these brands are no strangers to luxury experiences. Bulgari's highly successful venture into the travel industry, with properties in Milan, London, Dubai, Bali and more, this shows the potential of combining fashion with tailored experiences.
So, what is the secret behind Bulgari's success? Their brand is synonymous with beauty, exclusivity and glamour. They excel at pampering their guests and building long-lasting relationships, creating "ultra-luxury experiences" that truly resonate with their consumers.
Today, many brands are making significant investments to create a brand experience, and YBT enables this for everyone.
A thriving partnership
This summer we have seen a number of exciting collaborations between the fashion and hospitality industries. Iconic places like Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc on the French Riviera have partnered with brands like Sporty & Rich to create exclusive collections. Fendi Beach Club made its debut at Puente Romano Beach Resort in Marbella, adding a touch of fashion and luxury by the sea. Even Givenchy Plage has taken over the charming Topping Rose House in Bridge Hampton, while the collaboration between Simkhai and Montage Hotels adds a unique dimension to this captivating mix.
Like Robert Burke, founder and CEO of his own fashion and retail consulting agency, puts it: "The fashion world and the hospitality industry have always been intertwined, but now more than ever we are seeing an exciting fusion of these two worlds." This marks the beginning of an exciting new chapter for both the retail and travel industries, promising a harmonious mix of experiences that truly appeals to today's consumers.
