Brand capital comes to the foreground as conflicting macro factors usher in feelings of cautious optimism


The US fashion market faces conflicting macro factors in 2024 — higher economic growth and lower unemployment rates will be juxtaposed by higher prices, interest rates, and global supply chain risks. Despite an expected increase in fashion sales, consumers are looking to spend strategically. Retailers will seek to raise prices rather than push volume. To strengthen emotional connections with customers, brands will deploy more effective storytelling and cultivate more memorable shopping moments.

“I think that physical retail is very important for the future. I do think that we’re seeing more people wanting to come in and be in discovery mode [in-store].  [Customers want to increasingly go] through the customer journey that way instead of clicking online, waiting for something to arrive, and then wanting to return it because it doesn’t fit [or] isn’t as expected.”

-Linda Ashman, EVP (Americas) at Bogner
