About this title


Why the luxury market's fate rests in Chinese wallets

The media has negatively focused on the Chinese politicaladministration clamping down on gifting. Observers have come todoubt the strength of Chinese consumption as the key driver forluxury. The Bling Dynasty illustrates how doubts aboutChinese consumption are ill-founded and Chinese luxury demand is onthe cusp of becoming dominant.

Each chapter brings a different perspective, coveringcomplex aspects of luxury consumption, with illustrations andreal-world examples that support the research. Readers will gaininsights through interviews with brand executives, retailers,experts, and consumers.

As an economic heavyweight, China is fast realizing its role inthe luxury market. Chinese consumers should be accounting for morethan a third of the global luxury market today, and half, if notmore, in ten year's time. The Bling Dynasty runs counter tothe conventional wisdom that expanding sectors become more global.Luxury is actually becoming over-dependent on Chinese sales.

Readers will:

  • Understand how Western brands developed in Asia and thechallenges they are met with, notably ubiquity

  • Gain insights on why there are no Chinese luxury brandschallenging Western models
  • Realize that Chinese consumers are becoming similar to theirAmerican peers and that luxury competition goes way beyondpre-conceptions

China's big spenders are increasingly mobile and this isaffecting key markets. The Bling Dynasty provides newresearch and a comprehensive look at the booming business of luxuryand the Chinese wallet.
