BurdaLuxury Relaunches Lifestyle Luxury Brand Prestige 

BurdaLuxury, a subsidiary of German media conglomerate Hubert Burda Media, today relaunches its lifestyle luxury brand Prestige, bringing together the brand’s 4 editions under the theme ‘Evolution’ for the September 2022 issue. 

Introducing the New Prestige

Featuring a series of cover personalities with their own refreshing take on the concept, Prestige celebrates its own evolution through exploring the stories of others: Prestige Hong Kong features Gigi Ma (née Lai), the popular actress who became Chairman of an ethical medicine company; Prestige Malaysia spotlights Nazreem Musa’s inspiring story of becoming a gender fluid model; and Prestige Thailand explores Margie Rasri’s transition from actress and influencer to motherhood. Meanwhile, Prestige Singapore features Spanish model Marta Ortiz in an exclusive shoot in Madrid for its print cover, as well as a digital cover featuring Willabelle Ong, popular luxury lifestyle influencer who represents the evolution of media and the next generation of tastemakers. 

Conceptualised as an improved luxury experience, the relaunch features a brand-new Prestige logo that reflects the brand's modern, younger approach to content. As part of creating a more unified brand experience across the region, Prestige will focus on launching events and campaigns at a regional level, beginning with its signature 40 Under 40 event, which will be rolled out in September in Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, and Thailand.  

Björn Rettig, CEO of BurdaLuxury

“Our audience – Asia's inner circle – is more dynamic than ever. With their needs constantly evolving, Prestige is the ultimate authority on new luxury: we recognise and celebrate our community’s achievements, create opportunities for them to connect with one another, and provide exclusive first-hand information,” said Björn Rettig, CEO of BurdaLuxury. “Our Evolution Issue celebrates not only the evolution of our brand, but the evolution of our audience.”

Reflecting evolving trends in the luxury space, the new Prestige places an even greater emphasis on sharing interesting, impactful stories through its new ‘Boulevard’ section, with each edition of Prestige highlighting local people, products, and places that resonate with readers. The first significant relaunch since the brand’s inception in 2000, the new strategy places a greater focus on providing exclusive luxury insights, sharing unique experiences, a deeper level of storytelling, and highlighting influential individuals that make up the Prestige community.
