Luxury brands are continuing to push the boundaries of digital experience by collaborating with branded social media and tech platforms to create immersive experiences that put customers in control of how they view and engage with new products.
Burberry will be the first luxury retailer to live stream a fashion show on gaming platform Twitch. Virtual guests can choose to view the spring/summer 2021 collection from multiple angles and can connect with other attendees via Twitch’s chat function.
Amazon has launched a new concession-based platform ‘Luxury Stores’ on its mobile app. Oscar de la Renta is the first brand to open a shop-in-shop. Customers can take a 360-degree view of the collections on different size models to inspire confident decision making and purchasing online.
