What are the key trends that will light up the luxury sector in early 2022? If Sustainability and Inclusion are now table stakes for every brand, what are the themes that will be the most talked about amongst consumers and what will give your brand the edge? Is the metaverse the new luxury playground? How does a post-pandemic yearning for simplicity sit alongside a new mood for haute hedonism and life in technicolour? Where does wellness and mindfulness meet YOLO? Are collaborations between very high profile fashion brands here to stay?
