The most recent theories underlying the contemporary developments of the Design and Fashion system in Europe will also be analyzed, with practical examples of the main innovations of the discipline.
UNIT 2 – PRODUCT AND BRAND DESIGN
The second module will investigate not only the most important and iconic products of contemporary luxury, but also the contribution offered by design during the planning or redesign of a brand itself.
UNIT 3 – COMMUNICATION VALUES
Communication is today undoubtedly one of the main areas of interest of Design: the object of this study will therefore not only be a coordinated image, not only communication through new digital channels and creativity at the service of online marketing, but also the basic tools for a sociology of consumption and for the development of a small autonomous project in the field of communication for luxury under the supervision of the teachers of the Politecnico.
UNIT 4 – RETAIL AND BRAND EXPERIENCE
The last unit will be entirely dedicated to the potential offered by design in the commercial and experiential sectors for the luxury segment, with attention also to new forms of luxury, now expressed through new products and services for new consumers. In addition to the theoretical introduction to the themes of buying, visual merchandising and events, students will also be offered practical activities with targeted visits and design modules, to facilitate a better understanding of the development dynamics of creative processes and allow students a view behind the fifth.
The Master also includes 70 specific hours dedicated to the “Luxury Management” area, which will explore the themes of luxury marketing management, pricing, CRM and licensing (in collaboration with 24Ore Business School), without neglecting the sociological and brand image aspects.
