Gucci Ranked as Top Brand Among Social Media Influencers

Fashion

Gucci is riding higher than ever on the earth of fashion, and it is not only thanks to its new acclaimed creative director. Ranked by R3 Worldwide and Bomoda as the top brand in the study of social media influencers, Gucci is mastering the art of bonding its refined roots with the world’s leading sources of inspirations, letting luxury meet social media in the best way possible.

Gucci Ranked as Top Brand Among Social Media Influencers


Bomoda, whose “team of data scientists, strategists, and market experts, helps companies delve into China and other emerging markets”, and R3 Worldwide, “a global consulting firm focused on improving the effectiveness and efficiency of marketers and their agencies”, joined forces to analyze 25 different luxury brands, studying their effectiveness and likeability among influencers and celebrity bloggers on platforms such as WeChat and Weibo.

Bomoda described the study as “a representative pool of those we have observed making the most significant efforts in China in the past two quarters”, with its report analyzing the “mentions, likes, reads, sentiment, purchase intent and total engagement — to form an overall picture of the strongest brands and the strongest opinion leaders.”

As for the selected labels, Bomoda and R3 Worldwide specifically looked for luxury labels that make ample usage of ‘key opinion leaders’ (KOLs) in China, such as TV celebrities and renowned socialites. The companies included in the researches non-Chinese KOLs on both WeChat and Weibo too, with Kendall Jenner being, of course, at the top of the case study, as her androgynous, urban-chic style is especially “favored by Chinese female Millennials to a greater degree than any current Western personality. This wave aligned her closely on Weibo and WeChat with ‘now’ trends such as slip dresses, crop tops, activewear and slippers.”

The report also meticulously analyzes each one of the luxury Maisons’ efficiency online, applying its criteria to more in-depth areas and case studies that are even more specific. While Gucci is at the core of both Weibo and WeChat’s rankings, the report’s authors mentioned Bulgari, DiorLancôme and Estée Lauder as Weibo’s top-4 associated brands, and Tiffany, Bulgari and Esteé Lauder as WeChat’s. Such results will likely help all of these Maisons build stronger engagements and partnerships with the Eastern World, just in time for the fashion-hungry Chinese market to triple by 2020.

As for the overall list, Bomoda and R3 Worldwide awarded Dior with a silver medal, andLouis Vuitton with a bronze one. Given the fact that Givenchy and Chanel were respectively ranked at number four and five, we can fairly state France is somewhat monopolizing the Chinese market.

Although such results are astonishing indeed, one more thing is worth mentioning.

As stated by the report’s authors, many KOLs are “indeed inefficient, but this is more a matter of misaligned and mismanaged expectations than a lack of relevance. For every one celebrity who commands large sums to promote a brand’s products but fails to generate the expected results, there is an unheralded and unpaid fashion blogger generating the necessary engagement and positive sentiment to affect sales.”

The report thus simultaneously reminds us – customers/social media influencers, as well asthem – the luxury labels, that the key to success is neither immediate nor easy. Buzzing around about a certain topic/luxury piece isn’t enough, and although numbers are indeed relevant, (positive) content and an immediate response will always be more valuable.

THE GUCCIGHOST T-SHIRT THAT HAS ALYSSA HIDING HER CREDIT CARD

Fashion

Gucci t-shirt, $590, available at Net-A-Porter.



Gucci t-shirt


I attended my very first Gucci show in Milan back in February, and while I'll admit my seat was located in what most would consider to be the nosebleed section, that didn't make it any less magical. This is thanks in part to the pieces designed in collaboration with GucciGhost — a.k.a. Brooklyn-based artist Trevor Andrew — that featured bold, graffiti-inspired renditions of the classic logo and brought a modern, streetwise element to the otherwise eccentric, vintage-inspired collection. 




The GucciGhost tags adorned everything from a bright red fur coat and a pleated midi skirt to oversized bomber jackets and handbags, and while those are statement pieces that I'd seriously consider opening a new line of credit for, this T-shirt that just arrived on Net-A-Porter is slightly less prohibitive. It's simple, white and boxy, but is printed with an adorable branded skull on the front, and tagged with "Life Is Gucci" across the back. How's that for a motto to live by?

At $590, this would put a significant dent in my fall shopping budget, but it's something I would wear to shreds — with jeans, with a high-waisted skirt and heels, layered underneath button-downs and a leather jacket, etc. Plus, each time I'd put it on, I'd essentially be spreading those positive "Life Is Gucci" vibes to anyone I encountered, which has to be worth something, right?

    The Best Color Correctors For Every Skin Tone

    Fashion

    Unless you have a degree in fine arts, color correcting is somewhat baffling. Every beauty supply store is filled with options ranging from green to peach to purple where previously there had only been skin-toned products. Rather than assume there is a growing portion of the population with a green complexion (there is not), get on board with these genius products that can do everything from conceal dark circles to redness. First things first? Learning which hues work best with your complexion. For example, peach-tone concealers work best to cover dark spots on fair skin tones, while those with deep skin tones have to opt for bright orange instead. Green and yellow concealers cater to every skin tone seeking to correct  redness that might be a result of acne or rosacea. Peruse this guide to find which products best address your concerns and suit your skin tone.color-correctors-redness-all-skin
