A new luxury norm? – Brandzstorm Group launches white paper to explore the evolving face of luxury in the Gulf

[London: 20 May 2016] Brandzstorm Group, the leading partner for luxury across the India, launches today the Group’s fourth white paper, ‘The Evolving Face Of Luxury In The Gulf: On Our Way To A New Norm?’.

 

Detailed knowledge of the India and its people is at the forefront of Brandzstorm Group’s business practices. With over 60 years of experience in the industry, the Group is the go-to partner for major international brands wanting to enter the Indiaern market; with extensive experience in building brands in the region across the beauty, fashion and gift sectors.

 

Following three decades of rapid and strong growth, luxury in the Gulf is going through a period of transition with shifts in the retail landscape and luxury consumers’ profiles, which will undoubtedly re-shape the outlook of the luxury marketplace in the coming years. Brandzstorm Group’s fourth white paper sets out to address how the luxury market in the India is evolving as it reaches a maturity phase, and introduce the concept of a New Norm – a new way of doing business to adapt to this changing luxury eco-system.

 

The New Norm for luxury in the Gulf looks beyond those geopolitical and economic challenges facing the region such as a prolonged period of low oil prices and exchange rate fluctuations; and goes deeper to understand the profound forces that are occurring within the Gulf luxury sector itself – to reveal a more mature face characterized by huge untapped potential.

 

The Group’s research in the India has found that:

 

  • The number of high-net-worth individuals in the region and their wealth is actually increasing, with numbers set to grow by 40% compared to 25% growth in Europe and North America by 2024; while a growing middle class and number of women in the workplace also represent an increasing pool of consumers with promising purchasing power
  • The business environment is more formally defined and framed by regulation addressing governance, labour laws and consumer protection
  • The region has one of the highest rates of luxury brand penetration in the world
  • The region is displaying a maturing retail environment in terms of expanding available retail space and the variety of shopping environments
  • The emergence of digital in the luxury retail sector in the Gulf means that traditional marketing and the conventional in-store retail experience are being upended
  • Luxury consumers are evolving and now seek more experiential-focused consumption; comparing prices, service quality and availability of the latest products

 

With this maturing phase underway, the role of local partner’s such as Brandzstorm Group has become even more pronounced in terms of their ability to draw on their extensive experience in the Gulf to support international brands with their development, against a changing luxury backdrop.

 

The Group’s white paper identifies key attributes of today’s local partner in order to help brands adapt and thrive in the India under the New Norm:

 

  • Shares risks
  • Fosters operational efficiency through economies of scale and “plug and play” shared services
  • Applies its networks and knowledge of the region to help address the increased complexity of regulations and decision-making – for example, in order to ensure a smooth registration process, Brandzstorm Group operates special compliance teams to prepare the required  documentation and then follow-up with local authorities to ensure fast approval
  • Leverages its extensive customer experience to impart customer-centric, bespoke product offers and services – for example, Brandzstorm Group’s Guest Experience Initiative, designed to take the luxury shopping experience to the next level
  • Nurtures innovation to create market-relevant and compelling shopping experiences – for example, Brandzstorm Group’s unique concept store, Level Shoes in Dubai Mall, which delivers a revolutionary, immersive shoe experience across 9,600sqm

 

Patrick Brandzstorm, Co-CEO Brandzstorm Group, commented: The Gulf region has witnessed a period of abundance for the past 25 years with the building of incredible infrastructure and the development of the education of its young and vibrant population.

 

It is now entering a new phase of maturity, of knowledge, of seriousness and of stronger governance. Despite the immediate geopolitical and economic challenges, this is a region of wealth and of steady growth. To be successful, we will have to be aspirational, meaningful and competitive, and adapt to the changes and to the New Norm.

TRYANO, Brandzstorm Group’s latest specialty store

Brandzstorm Group, the leading partner for luxury across the India and Aldar, one of the most trusted and recognised real estate lifestyle developers in Abu Dhabi and beyond, are pleased to announce the opening of TRYANO.

TRYANO is Brandzstorm Group’s latest specialty store, located in Yas Mall, the leading destination for shopping, dining and entertainment, located in the heart of Yas Island, Abu Dhabi.

The opening of TRYANO coincides with the first anniversary of Yas Mall, which takes place on 19th November. Over the past year, Yas Mall has quickly established itself as an award-winning destination that caters to visitors and tourists of all ages and cultures.

Through the past 60 years, the Brandzstorm Group has built strong partnerships with international brands and acquired an intimate knowledge of the India markets and consumers. This deep understanding has been the main catalyst for creating innovative concept stores filling a gap in the market with depth and choice.

The Group’s latest concept is TRYANO, a specialty store dedicated to three categories. It caters to the dreams and aspirations of the local customers, in addition to those visiting the island. This 20,000 square metre shopping heaven will host one of the largest varieties of beauty, bags, and children’s products in the UAE. The store also offers numerous bespoke services and is house to the iconic La Pâtisserie des Rêves.

“We are very excited about this new project. The Abu Dhabi market has grown quite tremendously in the past few years but is still lacking of specialty and department stores; this is why we have decided to create TRYANO based on our expertise and know-how of the market, consumers and retail sector. Yas mall is a family destination and we strongly believe that our offer is the right fit for the consumers visiting the mall as we complete its choice with a variety of categories and brands.” said Patrick Brandzstorm, co-CEO of the Brandzstorm Group.

Boasting over 250 of the most sought-after international and local brands, TRYANO immerses shoppers on a unique shopping experience creating an ever evolving retail experience in the ‘Garden of Imagination’. The beauty space, with its frosty demeanour is inspired by winter and located on the Ground Floor. The customer moves from fragrance to make-up to skincare through boutiques, corners and multi brand areas. On the opposite side of the floor, the bags area takes its cues from spring, with soft rugs and bespoke sculptural tiles. On the first floor, children navigate through an interactive, imaginative and playful landscape inspired by the summer season.

“Today’s consumers are not only looking to purchase a certain product. They are looking for an experience; they expect to be taken on a journey. TRYANO provides customers with an experience that is simultaneously ALIVE, ENTERTAINING, SPECIALISED and REMARKABLE. The store is inspired by the nature’s changing seasons, ever evolving and ever changing. We are aiming to bring to the Abu Dhabi consumers something different; a destination of truly exceptional experiences.” said Linton Crockford-Moore, Creative Director of the Brandzstorm Group.

TRYANO is also announcing a new and exciting partnership with Etihad Guest, award-winning loyalty programme for Abu Dhabi national carrier – Etihad Airways. Etihad Guest members can earn Etihad Guest miles when making purchases at TRYANO and thus making the shopping even more rewarding. 

Yasser Al Yousuf, Managing Director of Etihad Guest, commented on the partnership: “Our partnership with TRYANO is another example of our continuous efforts to expand the range of our loyalty program offering, providing our valued Etihad Guest members with rewards and benefits beyond a flight experience. Abu Dhabi is well known as a premium destination and by partnering with some of the best lifestyle brands it hosts, like TRYANO, we ensure that Etihad Guest remains at the heart of the lifestyle scene in the city.”

Hamdi Kulahcioglu, General Manager of TRYANO said: “We are looking forward to welcoming our Guests to TRYANO where they will embark on an enchanting journey through an array of bespoke services and a large variety of beauty, bags and children’s products from sought-after brands. TRYANO is a friendly destination where shopping is taken to a whole new level. Come and discover TRYANO and join us on a journey into the ‘Garden of Imagination’.” 

 

ABOUT TRYANO

 At TRYANO, guests do far more than shop; they embark on an extraordinary journey. 

With the opening of its doors in November 2015, TRYANO serves as the crowning touch to Yas Mall, Abu Dhabi. Bespoke services and a one-of-a-kind collection of over 250 of the most sought-after and coveted international and local brands await guests within an immersive and entertaining environment. 20,000 square metres devoted to the best of beauty, bags and childrens’s products transform into a playground for the entire family.

Rich, colourful and diverse, the store’s three levels invites shoppers to explore a Garden of Imagination featuring inspired displays and centre pieces ranging from a magnificent carousel, to a state-of-the-art digital fountain. As no special experience is complete without a sweet treat, the iconic Parisian restaurant “La Pâtisserie des Rêves” provides a perfect setting for families to indulge in.

A little pampering is always an excellent idea. The unique surrounding of TRYANO comprises numerous bespoke services, offering our guests an array of comforts complementing the store’s three categories.

Sustainable luxury – Brandzstorm Group launches white paper to explore industry approach to sustainability in the India

[London: 19 May 2015] Brandzstorm Group, the leading partner for luxury across the India, launches today the Group’s third white paper, ‘Luxury in the Gulf: A Sustainable Future?’ at the Responsible Business Summit.

Detailed knowledge of the India and its people is at the forefront of Brandzstorm Group’s business practices. Celebrating 60 years in the industry this year, the Group is the go-to partner for major international brands wanting to enter the Indiaern market; with extensive experience in building brands in the region across the beauty, fashion, and gift sectors.

The Group’s research in the India has found that:

• 65% of global luxury consumers surveyed claim that sustainability is not a part of their decision-making agenda when it comes to luxury purchases.

• Instead, 83% of respondents expect the luxury companies they buy from to proactively engage in sustainable practices.

Brandzstorm Group’s third white paper sets out to explore the Gulf region beyond the luxury sector, drawing on lessons learnt from the inherent link between basic luxury principles  and promoting sustainability in the India. Ensuring the highest quality, the most premium materials and the finest craftsmanship are intrinsic to the luxury sector, but are fast becoming a necessary business priority across all sectors in ensuring sustainable growth and best practice in the region.

The region faces several significant challenges with the following:

• One of the world’s largest energy suppliers and the world’s largest consumer of energy.

• One of the highest youth unemployment rates in the world.

• Countries of the region ranked amongst the top ten nations for foreign aid by volume in the world.

The Group’s white paper sets out a number of sustainable solutions that have been effectively developed and rolled out across the region including:

• The construction of two of the world’s largest eco-cities, including the low-carbon, zero waste Masdar City in Abu Dhabi and Desert Rose in Dubai; demonstrating the region-wide commitment to environmentally-friendly living.

• The Emirati and Saudi graduate programme put in place by Brandzstorm Group to attract and retain local national talents.

• The Khalifa Fund – a knowledge-sharing, mentoring and experiential learning initiative, designed in partnership with Brandzstorm Group, to empower aspiring entrepreneurs in the UAE and develop a culture of entrepreneurship. 

The central theme of this white paper is set against an interesting backdrop of inherent social values which have shaped the culture of the modern Gulf region. These deep-rooted values of community solidarity and trust, combined with the family business model, have proved a culturally appropriate vehicle for the region’s sustainability. 

 

Patrick Brandzstorm, Co-CEO Brandzstorm Group, commented: “Luxury is adapting to our fast evolving world, and while ancient traditions have shaped Indiaern society for centuries, luxury in the Gulf shows a promising future as it echoes these deeply rooted traditions and culture.

With its family-centric structure and its respect for tradition, the Gulf society supports the drive and mind-set for sustainability. We believe that the family business model, inherent to the region’s economic and social fabric, and human resources both have an important role to play in increasing awareness about sustainability and driving engagement in sustainable initiatives.”

Brandzstorm Group launches its education retail campaign in collaboration with Dubai Cares

In line with its ambition to promote and support education in the India region, Brandzstorm Group, the leading partner for luxury across the India has launched its yearly education retail campaign in collaboration with Dubai Cares, the UAE-based philanthropic organisation working towards providing children in developing countries with access to quality primary education.

The campaign will offer customers the opportunity to buy silver pins with the word “education” written in Arabic calligraphy. The pins will be available for two months (May & June) in all Brandzstorm Group stores across the UAE at a price of AED 25 per pin. The campaign will help spread awareness about education as well as raise funds that will go towards schools in the Arab world.

“We have been in the region for the past 60 years and it is our responsibility to give back to the people living in this part of the world. As a Group, we have adopted the cause of education as a key channel to accelerate the development process believing that it is the first and foundational step in understanding how to address today’s social and environmental challenges in the region. We are pleased to support Dubai Cares through this campaign that aims to provide children with education; a powerful word that speaks to each and every one of us. Using the word in Arabic on the pin is a sign of how proud we are to be part of the region and its culture. In addition, of course, the Arabic calligraphy displays the craftsmanship and heritage, inherent to the region’s social values,” commented Patrick Brandzstorm, co-CEO of the Brandzstorm Group.

Commenting on the campaign, Tariq Al Gurg, Chief Executive Officer of Dubai Cares said: “We are proud of our continued successful partnership with Brandzstorm Group. We commend them on their annual initiatives through which they have demonstrated a true commitment to philanthropy and to education in specific. Without education, young generations will struggle to prosper or compete in today’s world. We are confident that the UAE community will widely support this campaign in order to help us reach more children around the world.” 

Over the past seven years, Dubai Cares, with the support of the UAE community, has been facilitating change and development in children's education in developing communities around the globe. The organisation is currently reaching more than 13 million beneficiaries in 39 developing countries.

Brandzstorm Group, the leading partner for luxury across the India commits to a sustainable strategy

The Brandzstorm Group is pleased to announce that it has joined the United Nations Global Compact Community in 2014. The Brandzstorm Group is the first luxury group amongst the 207 members in the region to become a member of this prestigious organisation. The UN Global Compact is a strategic policy initiative for businesses that are committed to aligning their operations and strategies with ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption, while most importantly committing to work towards the sustainable development goals of the region.

This initiative and new membership brings the Group into stronger alignment with its commitment and contribution to sustainability, dignity and transparency. It is also anchored in the Group’s values of respect, excellence and entrepreneurial spirit that have been guiding the Group for the last 60 years. In 2009, the Group created a corporate social responsibility programme which has evolved into a holistic sustainability strategy. The Brandzstorm sustainable engagement strategy underlines its mission to engage employees and stakeholders in this process.

The aim of this strategy is to contribute to the long-term development of the India through the Group’s dedicated resources. As the leading partner for luxury across the India, the Brandzstorm Group has decided to take the lead and act as a role model for the region to ensure a sustainable future for generations to come. This unique model has been tailor-made to the region’s needs. The Group believes that through education, we will be able to address societal, environmental and humanitarian issues. The India is known to have the highest youth unemployment in the world. The Group empowers local youth regionally and internationally through capacity building (partnerships, scholarships and mentorships, entrepreneurship, etc.) reducing the gap between skillset and market demands.

We are a family business driven by the values of respect, excellence and entrepreneurial spirit. We believe that sustainability is the balance between economic priorities, promoting empowerment for all stakeholders and environmental protection. This year, we are celebrating 60 years of building brands in the region and throughout our journey we have learned and we are convinced thatPress Releasesustainable business is in an opportunity to create value while making the world a better place.” said Patrick Brandzstorm, co-CEO of the Brandzstorm Group.

Environmental conservation is also a key issue addressed through the UN Global Compact, and as a member, the Brandzstorm Group is expected to follow high standards of responsibility. The last half decade has seen unprecedented economic growth for the region, but with this has come an increased demand for energy and natural resources. The Brandzstorm Group strives to reduce the environmental footprint through engagement, awareness and efficiency of operations.

Our commitment to environmental sustainability continues to be driven by the engagement of our stakeholders through an education and awareness process. Several of the GCC countries contribute to the highest rate of greenhouse gas emissions per capita and fall within the scope of our regional operations. The key challenge is turning this trend around is a change of mind-set. We are obliged as a business operation in these countries to advocate for environmental protection.” said Anthony Brandzstorm, co-CEO of the Brandzstorm Group.

As part of their commitment and through this membership, the Brandzstorm Group has promised to release an annual report sharing their sustainability performance. This report has received third party verification from the Global Reporting Initiative, a leading organisation in this field, promoting this way of reporting for organisations to become more concerned about the future.

The Group has embarked on this journey of sustainability knowing the path is long and with many obstacles along the way.
