The luxury market has opened up the door to other innovative markets (e.g., gamification markets, social media marketing, brand experiences, green consumption, ethical fashion, new forms of intermediation, convergence of distribution channels). With regards to luxury markets, the meaning of luxury has evolved with the emergence of the concept of and market for new luxury. Today, luxury is seen as an individual option, a subjective, private, and unique experience (Nobre, 2019), which is far from the traditional definition of superfluous, costly, conspicuous, elitist, and exclusive (Cristini et al., 2017). However, the democratization of traditional luxury through the proliferation of mass luxury brands and premium brands, extensions of old luxury brands, and more economical product lines (Silverstein & Fiske, 2003) – the mass consumption luxury market – is a reality, which has been contributed to by the emergence of a new type of consumer with more purchasing power who aspires to replicate the lifestyle of celebrities and other individuals they admire and who feature in the media.
