Brand Management - Burberry

  1. 1. B U R B E R R Y H I S T O R Y – TH E B E G I N N I N G . . . • In 1856, Burberry was opened in a small outfitter’s shop in Basingstoke Hampshire, England by Thomas Burberry, a 21-year-old draper’s apprentice. Burberry’s customer base grew throughout the 1800s. • Burberry offered an extensive line of outerwear for both men and women. The company designed hats, jackets, pants and gaiters especially for hunting, fishing, golf, tennis, skiing, archery and mountaineering. • In 1901, Burberry was commissioned by the War Office — a department of the British Government — to design a new uniform for the British Officers. • The invention of Gabardine in 1880 — a breathable, waterproof and tear-proof fabric, proved to be a key development for Burberry, putting the company on the world map within the apparel industry. • Over the years, the brand grew and maintained their quality design and gained public fame and celebrity status.
  2. 2. The Luxury Industry • A new part of the luxury industry – “Experience-Based Luxury”, was a growing segment of the luxury market..People were enjoying much more material comfort in comparison with previous generations, resulting in a trend of a cultural shift for personal fulfillment and aspiration through experience • There was sudden cultural shift also came a growing demand for a luxury experience as an aspect of shopping in-store for personal luxury goods. • In line with the increase in household purchasing power over the last few decades, prices of top-of-the-line luxury goods experienced an upward trend. Customer Segmentation ABSOLUTES ASPIRATIONAL ACCESSIBLE Industrial Conglomerates Celebs, Professionals & Business Men and Women Upper Middle Class Segment Money isn’t an issue, Demand is stable Demand fluctuates with market conditions Owning luxury makes them feel like members of an exclusive club, hence like loud labelling on products. Appreciate brand history, heritage, understated opulence, high esthetic content, extreme quality, Privacy. Appreciate emotional & creative value that have references that justify the price. They also value quality. They want to be associated with affluence, nut may not have the finances to back it up, so they often turn to counterfeit.
  3. 3. The Chinese Emerging Market • After 2006, The established markets (Europe & US ) were overpowered in size by the Asia-Pacific region, which accounted for 35.3 per cent of the global market’s value during this same period. • By 2005, the China region, was the largest and the fastest growing market for the personal luxury industry. Chinese consumers alone were expected to account for 29 per cent of all global luxury goods purchases.
  4. 4. The Chinese Emerging Market • The stereotypical Chinese luxury shopper was a middle-aged official who could afford to buy many luxury goods. • The growing Chinese economy gave rise to the Young Chinese Professional. These educated white-collar workers saved to splurge. They understood trends focused on key luxury purchases and mixed and matched their luxury pieces with local goods as well as with fake, counterfeit pieces. • The Chinese market experienced steep growth. • However, the luxury sales to this market were not necessarily taking place within China, because: • A) Taxes: Due to taxes of 20 to 30 per cent on luxury goods, many wealthy Chinese customers used domestic stores as showrooms to view the items and try them on before they made their ultimate purchases during trips abroad. • B) Perception - Luxury goods purchased in China were perceived differently, compared to the goods purchased abroad, particularly in Europe.
  5. 5. Burberry Status • Though the company was enjoying financial growth, the luxury status and quality image associated with Burberry was changing as Burberry — particularly Burberry’s iconic check — gained popularity among a new customer market in Britain. Burberry’s “distinctive beige check, once associated with A-listers, became the uniform of a rather different social group: the so-called Chav.” • In Britain a few years ago, a working-class subculture emerged called Chavs, a term derived from the Romany travellers’ word chavi, meaning “child.” Young and usually with only a high school education, Chavs hang out at small-town shopping centres, smoke cigarettes, and intimidate passersby. Their uniform is a baggy tracksuit, clunky gold jewelry, and anything and everything with the Burberry check, much to the chagrin of Burberry executives. • In addition to the strong negative impact of the Chavs on Burberry’s image in Britain, the brand’s global strategy was also not aligned with Burberry’s desired image.
  6. 6. Burberry’s Business • A customer’s experience in a Burberry store in Tokyo might be very different from that in a store in Chicago. • Furthermore, with 23 licensees around the world, it was hard for Burberry to control the image portrayed by the licensees. Licensing was a big part of Burberry’s business; 11 per cent and 10 per cent of total revenues came from licensing in 2005 and 2006, respectively. • In addition, though the head office was based in London, the design team members were based all over the world. • Burberry operated with positive revenue growth over the last four years. Apart from the Atlas project costs in 2006 (a program for the full redesign of Burberry's sourcing, supply chain and business processes and systems), the company enjoyed steady growth in revenue and profitability over this time period.
  7. 7. Burberry – Product Line • Prorsum line was the Burberry’s fashion forward runway line. The line carried both haute couture and ready-to-wear pieces. • The women's wear and menswear lines were the core collections for Burberry. They offered a range of products in modern but classic style. • Burberry accessories included scarves, handbags, shoes, silks and umbrellas. Burberry teamed up with licensing partners on its glasses, fragrances and children’s clothing lines.

  9. 9. • The retail channel not only gave Burberry full control of the brand presentation and direct access to the customers, it was also a source of marketing for the brand. Large flagship stores in key shopping destinations around the world. 43% 11% 46% Retail Licence wholesale BURBERRY Distribution Channel - 2005/06 • The wholesale channel, Burberry products were distributed through a network of leading department stores, duty-free retailers and specialty stores, Franchise store run by wholesale partners. • The licensing channel made 70 per cent of its revenue in Japan. This licensing channel included a broad range of licensing on apparel, accessories and home products through licensing partners. By using licensing, Burberry minimized its input in the production process while, simultaneously, it took a cut of the profits from the sale of the licensed goods. Burberry - Distribution
