What People are Saying About This
“I myself often question the sustainability of luxury marketing, because I often fail to find the scientific explanation of many happenings of the world of luxury. This sometimes frustrates me. However, Professor Derval gives me faith in the luxury industry because she brings to the table scientific tools and approaches to creating, developing, and revamping luxury brands. I’ve had the pleasure to read one of her previous books “The Right Sensory Mix”, and since then my understanding of the luxury market has elevated and she has brought sense to an industry driven by emotional preferences. Reading this book, I was again genuinely looking forward to acquiring more scientific tools to understand and grow the brands I service.” (Annie Ho, General Manager Greater China, Stella McCartney, Kering group)
“Once again, I am very impressed with Diana Derval's new book. Through lively case studies, powerful marketing tools, and inspiring neuroscientific findings, she manages to explain the whys behind luxury mysteries. Designing luxury brands is a must read for both industry leaders and learners.” (Philip Kotler, , S.C. Johnson & Son Professor of International Marketing, Kellogg School of Management)
