Digital luxury: a conversation with Tom Meggle – Part One
26 November 2021
Discussion of the ‘metaverse’ has gone from being a fringe topic to one that is now everywhere. What more vindication of the idea entering mainstream consciousness than Facebook, a near trillion-dollar company, changing its name to Meta? Luxury brands are dipping their toes into this new virtual world. GAM Investments’ Swetha Ramachandran recently discussed the topic with luxury expert Tom Meggle, a former Louis Vuitton and Cartier executive, who manages his own consulting business exploring the intersection of technology and luxury. In part one of their conversation, Swetha and Tom examine the luxury market’s response to the pandemic, the growth potential of virtual fashion and the characteristics of the Gen-Z consumer cohort.
