100 Couture Branding Innovations

From Luxury Taxidermy to Fashionista Fingertips

— July 30, 2012 — Art & Design
From Louis Vuitton to Chanel, the world's most luxurious fashion labels are taking branding to the next level with a bold strategy at marketing their exclusive products.

Both unexpected and unconventional, this strategy often aims to reach out to a wider consumer base which does not solely include a group inclined to great wealth. Whether working in collaboration with other known corporations or relying on an homage from a dedicated fan base, the world's luxury brands are all about the unconventional.

From luxury label taxidermy to chic cupcake sweets, these couture branding innovations are reaching out to budding fashion lovers as well as loyal brand enthusiasts. Whether showcased on couture contraceptive packages and designer breakfast foods or on fashionista fingertips, these bold brands are embracing non-traditional marketing methods.
