Mixing brands and price segments

- The value of quality, naturalness and functionality of things comes to the fore
- Moving towards “affordable luxury” and “budget premium”
- In the center of attention – a person, not what he/she consumes valuable than things
Expect from brands to be responsible in environmental and ethical issues
Ready to change themselves, but are waiting for proactivity in socially active behavior:
- primarily from manufacturers of goods and from services providers,
- secondly – from retailers
- and only in last place is the responsibility of the consumers themselves.
Prefer to spend money on experiences over things
What does the affluent consumer look for today?
- Comfort, service, style, design, convenience
- Humor, emotions, stories, legends, True Stories, the idea of freedom
- Communicating with family and friends, including offline
- Connecting goods with positive emotions and impressions, interactivity and extension of the experience after purchase
