November 4, 2010
2.0 Company Background and History

2.1 History of Chanel and Information on Chanel S.A.S.

Chanel is a Parisian fashion house founded by Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel, recognized as one of the most established in haute couture, specializing in luxury goods. Chanel has always specialized in items such as simple suits, dresses, women’s pants, and costume jewelry. Coco Chanel’s designs and creations are timeless, considering the basic silhouettes have remained consistent from generation to generation.1

According to Forbes, the privately held House of Chanel is jointly owned by Alain Wertheimer and Gerard Wertheimer. They are the grandsons of the early Chanel partner Pierre Wertheimer.2

Chanel S.A.S. designs, manufactures, and retails fashion and beauty聽products, and other accessories. Chanel S.A.S. was founded in 1909 and is headquartered in Neuilly sur Seine, France with over 200 boutiques worldwide.3

2.2 Chanel Asia Pacific and Singapore boutiques

Information on Chanel Asia Pacific is very limited as Chanel, owned by the publicity-shy Wertheimer brothers, keeps a low profile.4

Vincent Shaw, President of Chanel Asia Pacific Pte Ltd is responsible for the company始s activities in Korea, China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore,

November 4, 2010
Malaysia, Thailand and Australia.5

There are 2 Chanel Boutiques in Singapore. The first at Ngee Ann City was opened in March 20096 and the second 6500 sq ft duplex store at Marina Bay Sands opened in September 2010.7

3.0 Industry Analysis

3.1 Target Audience

Chanel customers are women who want to identify what Chanel represents which is; elegance, simplicity, modern, and class. Chanel cosmetics are targeted at a younger consumer but they still retain the 鈥渃lassic鈥 market, which is their forte. Since 2002, with the launch of Chance perfume, Chanel is targeting women between the age 18 鈥 39.8

3.2 Market Positioning

Chanel has a strong market positioning within the luxury fashion goods sector. Drawing on an audit by Swiss and Cayman Islands tax services, financial experts estimate that Chanel has approximately one-third share of聽France始s fashion and luxury goods sector in 2008, with a $10.3 billion estimate value of the sector始s $35 billion.9

Figure 1: Chanel始s market share of France始s luxury goods sector in 2008.




3.3 Market Sector

Chanel is enjoying an established presence in the designer and haute couture sector. This is the company始s outlook, supported by the high end pricing of the products and a strong brand image which consumers perceive.10

3.4 Competitor Analysis

Louis Vuitton, established since 1854, is one of the main divisions of LVMH. The brand produces and retails luggage, handbags, other leather goods, shoes, clothing, jewelry and watches. There are more than 390 shops worldwide.11

Gucci, an Italian company based in Netherlands. The brand produces and retails handbags, other leather goods, shoes, ready-to-wear clothing, cosmetics, skin care, jewelry and watches. There are 425 Gucci stores worldwide.12

November 4, 2010
Louis Vuitton and Gucci are strong competitors because like Chanel, they have聽a very strong brand image conveyed by the easily recognizable logos. They compete keenly with Chanel in terms of sales of handbags and accessories. However they specialized in leather while Chanel does not. According to the Brandz valuation 2010, the top three luxury brands – Louis Vuitton, Hermes and Gucci – all enjoyed significant increases in brand equity. But Chanel, at number four, lost 11% of its brand value over the past 12 months.13 Much of Chanel始s lost brand value can perhaps be explained by the

company始s reluctance to enter China.14 In terms of cosmetics market, Chanel始s notable competitors would include L始Oreal始s Lancome, who hold the largest share in luxury cosmetics,15 Estee Lauder and LVMH始s Christian Dior.16

4.0 Company Analysis

4.1 SWOT: Micro economical analysis


1. Strong brand image: The story of stylish Coco Chanel, who famously said 鈥渇ashion passes; style remains”, conveys a very strong message of Chanel始s timeless elegance style.17 2. High-quality: Beauty is in the details. Chanel is famous for her tweed

fabric, embroidery, chain and button.18 See Appendix A.

3.Cult Designer Karl Lagerfeld: Always reinventing Chanel, he is known to have changed nothing yet everything about Chanel.19 Always daring to try

November 4, 2010
something different for each show, keeping the consumer始s interest in Chanel. 4. Excellent Management: Training for Chanel始s associates is critical, to differentiate them with their service.20 Consultants are sent to Paris to understand the heritage of the house and gathered for a conference for聽updates, acknowledgement and training for new products.21


1. Website: Does not provide prices.22 Customers will need to make calls or personal trip to store to find out prices. 2. Limited geographic coverage: Chanel boutiques are known to be exclusive and large-scale23 however they are missing out on expanding in many critical places in Asia, like China.24


1. Expanding deeper to the Asian market: There is huge economic growth in Asia, specifically China25 and India. Chanel can consider opening up more flagship stores to meet the increasing demands for luxury goods. 2. Tap on technology: Youths embrace social media and blogs.26 Chanel

must consider increasing marketing in this area in order not to be obsolete.


1. Counterfeit goods: A prevalent issue that can be difficult to distinguish and control.27


Regulations to reduce piracy: The implementation of strong regulations to reduce piracy rates is particularly crucial in Asia region, with emerging markets with huge potential, but unfortunately with a dampener on sales of bags and accessories as a result of uncontrolled piracy.


Increasing purchasing power of the developing world: An increased in income for the consumers lead to more desiring luxury goods28, a positive sign for Chanel. Worldwide economic crisis rebound: Economy is recovering from the crisis,29 a positive outlook in consumer behaviour and hence possible increased sales for Chanel.


Asians value prestige brand: Asians believe that brands like Chanel increases the value of the one who uses it.30 Chanel may consider producing more products with visible logo placements in Asia.


Growth of broadband. The growth of high-speed broadband internet connections had redefined advertising possibilities. Emergence of mobile internet. Brought about by the introduction of smart phones like Iphone, Blackberry that has a massive public appeal.31

Chanel originates from France and is a long established brand in Europe, with fashion shows carried out yearly. Well aware of the need to remain relevant in a fast-changing world, Chanel works to continually attract a younger customer base whilst retaining her classic market group.32 This is partly achieved through Karl Lagerfeld, who found a thousand different ways to reinterpret the house’s icons and archives and took the double C insignia places it had never been before 33 and strong publicity campaigns featuring global celebrities

such as Nicole Kidman, Keira Knightley and Lily Allen. 34 See Appendix B.

Singapore is known to be a truly innovative, creative retail environment and a very popular tourist destination; Chanel boutiques in Singapore attract a lot of South-east Asians. According to Grail Research in 2008, Singapore is an emerging market for luxury fashion largely due to strong government support for fashion shows, an increasing brand awareness and the establishment of Textile and Fashion Federation (TAFf) of Singapore.35 Chanel only opened her second boutique in Singapore in 2010; there is a lot of growth for Chanel locally. Thus Chanel will benefit to invest more in this island city-state by opening more stores to meet the demand for the South-east Asia region.

4.4 Product Developments and Collections

In the hands of Alain Wertheimer, Chanel has undergone a veritable industrial revolution. The quaint and romantic artisanal fabrication has been replaced by state-of-the-art production methods carried out in modern factories in

November 4, 2010
Compi猫gne, Pantin and Saint-Chamant. Each operation is controlled down to the minutest detail. With its own plants, Chanel can ensure that no outside manufacturer will omit some small but vital step and jeopardize the quality of the goods. 36

Chanel is famous for The Suit, The Camellia, Jewelry, Fragrance & Beauty and The Black Dress. 37 See Appendix C.

4.5 Types and Range of Merchandise In-store

The company feels it must remain a myth to ensure its mystique. Nothing must alter the image of Chanel. Wertheimer has faithfully maintained the opulent image of Chanel despite the trend toward democratizing luxury goods. The company has no plans to launch a second line.38

Chanel offers the classic items in their stores throughout the year whilst introducing new, trendy products with each fashion season. Range of merchandise includes fashion apparels and shoes, accessories, fragrance, make up, skincare, fine jewelry and watches.39 See Appendix D.

4.6 Timeline of Product Development Process

For Chanel始s fashion apparels, its product development process can be tracked to about every 2 months, with 6 collections produced by Karl Lagerfeld each year.

4.7 Prices and Seasons
November 4, 2010

Chanel鈥檚 product prices reflect the opulent image of Chanel. And because Chanel finds discussion of costs 鈥渃rude鈥, high-end prices of products are not reflected on their website and only available upon requests by calls or in- shop. A little research reveals a classic (Reissue 2.55) Chanel bag varies between SGD$2301 to SGD $3,199.40 Exclusive and 鈥淯ltra Luxe鈥 items like Alligator bag can cost up to $26,000.41 More recently, two Marina Bay Sands

boutique in Singapore Chanel exclusive flap with chain and charms costs

SGD$6280 and SGD$6980 respectively. See Appendix E.

There are six collections produced by Karl Lagerfeld each year, which are shown in Paris. January: Spring/Summer Haute Couture Collection. March: Autumn/Winter Ready-to-Wear Collection. June: Ready-to-Wear Cruise Collection. July: Fall/Winter Haute Couture Collection. October: Spring/Summer Ready-to-Wear Collection. December: High Summer Collection.

5.0 Strategic Analysis & Recommendations

5.1 Recommendations

1. Invest in the emerging markets, open more stores: There is an increase in income for the people living in the emerging markets such as China and India and this leads to more demand for luxury goods. Chanel should leverage on this by opening more stores in these emerging markets.

November 4, 2010
2. Pay more attention to the counterfeit and possible invest in technology to prevent it: Chanel can possibly work with government boards to clamp down on counterfeit goods at cross-border checkpoints.

3. Increase emphasize on new media technology: To remain relevant in a technology-savvy society and particularly to attract younger consumers, Chanel can increase new media marketing and consider going into e- commerce, which many competitors have done.42

5.2 Conclusion

Chanel has many strengths that makes it the multi-billion company strongly established within the elusive designer and haute couture market. The strength of an established brand started by Coco Chanel, carried forward by talented and creative Karl Lagerfeld and an amazing marketing and management team that has proved Chanel始s ability to attract young consumers since late 90始s till today. To prepare for an even brighter future ahead, Chanel can consider investing into emerging market by opening more stores abroad and tapping onto new media marketing. Chanel始s success is truly a result of the house始s decision to remain true to Chanel, always desiring to be a style, for 鈥淔ashion fades, but style remains鈥.
