Often incorporated into pop-up shops and brand activations, augmented and virtual reality experiences serve as branding tools memorable and multi-sensory introduction to consumers. Additionally, VR is increasingly being incorporated into retail concepts as a means of providing next level customization to customers faced with the option of staying at home and shopping on line. An examples of this use is Dior's 'Dior Eyes' in-store experience, which offers a behind-the-scenes tour at the brand's most recent runway show.
