An analysis of the effects that arise when low-budget brands collaborate with luxurious brands in the fashion industry. : Is co-branding the solution for the future of fashion? (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Sedan 2004 då H&M samarbetade med Karl Lagerfeld har samarbeten inom modebranschen blivit ett välkänt fenomen som idag är en marknadsföringsstrategi för varumärken i olika segment. Samarbeten genererar ofta positiva aspekter för de inblandade parterna men det finns även risk för nackdelar om samarbetet inte utförs på rätt sätt. Därutöver har modebranschen utvecklats de senaste åren och effekterna av samarbeten inom modebranschen har påverkat denna utveckling i viss utsträckning.

Syfte: Studiens syfte är att få en ökad förståelse för hur olika företags lågprisvarumärken och lyxvarumärken inom modebranschen påverkas av ett samarbete i form av en gemensam kollektion. Studien vill även skapa en uppdaterad förståelse för vilka synergieffekter som kan uppstå av dessa samarbeten, hur dessa samarbeten influeras av dagens modebransch, samt hur framtidsutsikten ser ut.

Metod: Studien utgår ifrån en kvalitativ forskningsmetod där empiri har samlats genom semistrukturerade intervjuer med sju experter som har kunskaper inom de ämnesområden som berör studien. Empirin har analyserats med hjälp av tidigare studier för fylla de gap som existerar för samarbeten inom modebranschen.

Slutsats: Studien konstaterar att samarbeten kan påverka både lågpris- och lyxvarumärkens brand equity och att de positiva effekterna överväger de negativa. Lågprisvarumärken tenderar dock att gynnas mest av ett samarbete. Influenser från bland annat populärkultur och nya typer av konsumenter har fått ett ökat inflytande på både modebranschen och samarbeten inom den. Framtiden bedöms som osäker av experterna. Dock framställs co-branding samtidigt som en lösning på den alltmer komplicerade modemarkanden.

Abstract [en]

Background: Since 2004 when H&M collaborated with Karl Lagerfeld has co-branding become a well-known phenomenon that now serves as a marketing strategy for clothing brands in different segments. These collaborations often generate positive aspects for the partners who are involved. There are however risks if the collaborations are not executed properly. The fashion industry has evolved in the last years and the consequences of collaborations have affected it to some extent.

Purpose: The purpose of this study is to research and create a developed understanding of the effects that may arise when a low-budget brand and a luxurious brand create a clothing collection together. The study also wants to examine potential synergies that a collaboration may generate, how these collaborations are influenced by todays fashion industry, as well as what the future might look like.

Methodology: This study applies a qualitative research method where empirical data has been gathered through semi-structured interviews with seven experts who have knowledge about the subject areas that are relevant to the study. The empirical data has been analyzed with the help of previous studies in order to fill the knowledge gaps that exist for collaborations within the fashion industry.

Conclusions: The study establishes that collaborations can indeed affect both the low-budget brand and the luxurious brand’s brand equity. It also found that the positive effects outweigh the negative. Low-budget brands however, tend to be more rewarded than luxurious brands in these collaborations. Influences from pop culture and new types of consumers have gained an increased power on both the fashion industry and the collaborations within it. The future is deemed uncertain by the experts but co-branding is however portrayed as a possible solution for the complicated fashion market that exists today.
