  • - - - - Product Packaging is often the first brand experience for luxury consumers and therefore most important. Chinas hyper-growth left a lack of pureness and authenticity. Products that tell a story about their origin and ingredients promise a desirable piece of pureness. Chinese consumers live between national pride and global attitudes.

They dont just buy a product, they buy a bit of an admirable world of lux, not made in China. Products give brands a body and an appearance to make brand values alive. Therefore authentic luxury needs to be an experience for all senses. Faces of Luxury 2010 2010
