We recently opened our first Luxury brand shop called Or-gari Golden Safari, and there have been a number of questions that we have been thinking of. This book is very insightful and has really help us clarify some of these questions, like how many shops to open and why retail or wholesale. Worth reading Nicholas Snaith Founder Or-gari.com
This is a great read for someone trying to quickly learn as much as possible about international fashion retailing. I love that it covers strategy, but also gets into practical examples, for example how a stores location on the north or south side of a street affects real foot traffic.
This is the most up to date book on luxury retailing which can turn amateurs into pros, and pros into luxury experts. While most readers, including myself, may be tempted to dive straight into the retail operations details, do pay special attention to the authors' sequential approach to this subject matter: brand - supply chain - distribution models, and only then retail operations.
