luxury brands betting on sustainability

slow fashion

A study by the Sheldon Group demonstrates this: Millennials seek to buy from sustainable companies. Due to supply and demand, luxury companies take note and begin to take more steps towards green.

the main sustainability initiatives and the gucci brand carried out in recent years towards the ethical and sustainable trend of fur free, luxury brands are making headlines for announcing sustainable trends.

viviene westwood:

It is known that this brand is a pioneer in sustainable fashion from the beginning, despite not boasting about this image. Several Viviene Westwood fashion shows, the “ecotricity” trend, are all about renewable energy and calling other luxury brands to move from fossil fuels to green energy.

The campaign started in collaboration with the London Mayor’s Office and the British Fashion Council and the companies of Belfast, Marks or Spencer have committed to follow Westwood. Years of commitment to the environment is shown in sustainable fashion at the V&A Museum in London.


Gucci’s attempt at sustainability was to create 100% traceable handbags in association with sustainability advocate, Livia Firth. In 2010, this luxury brand also introduced recycled packaging with classified paper. In 2011, Gucci launched glasses made from organic materials with castor oil.

in 2012 he launched a collection of sandals made of sustainable and biodegradable plastic. You also said that the leather and fur they used is from verified captive breeding operations or wild populations sustainably.

In 2017, Gucci refused to make and use fur in its collections. The company stopped using fox fur, mink, rabbit, karakul and raccoon fur in the collections. in 2018 the company has used gucci equilibrium to have transparency and sustainability.

The website is designed to connect people, the planet and the purpose for gucci staff to volunteer in local communities. Part of the Gucci 10-year plan talks about a waste-free program that uses leather and reduces it in production.

Why is the slow lifestyle taking hold in Latin America?

More responsible consumption and with more organic consumption.

Durable, unique and long lasting. It is the lifestyle and brands of slow travel, but what does it mean? Slow fashion is not the same as sustainable fashion. Slow fashion seeks to give an exclusivity to a garment (even if it is for travelers and with more reason)

What is sought in slow fashion is that the clothes last, they are handmade. that is, little production.

With this we started working on this blog in slow fashion, slow lifestyle, slow travel and more responsible tourism committed to the local luxury industry.

Today we want to talk about a brand in Latin America that works with slow fashion.

panango is a slow fashion brand that is for tireless travelers and has high quality certifications and you can enjoy it for when you want to travel. We have some brands for travelers and we will start doing reviews of slow clothing brands for travelers.

The best premium restaurants in Madrid. Part II

Two stars

The best two-star restaurants are these:


In Madrid it is the best quality – price restaurant. In addition, with its seasonal and organic products, it is a must-see in Madrid to enjoy the place.


High quality Japanese fusion food. Although a little expensive and you also sit in an armchair, it is loved for what it offers.


Original and unique. It shows the original and indigenous foods of the autonomous communities of Madrid. a unique, fresh, progressive and seasonal touch.


75 years of history, it is a combination between Germany and Spain and has very original dishes.

The Tasqueria

It’s an interesting twist this restaurant gave it. It changed commonplace like rates and made it premium and unique as well.


Javier Goya wanted his restaurant to be a place where anyone would like to eat. That is why I create this restaurant of high gastronomy in Madrid with Japanese fusion food. It is one of the most valued restaurants in haute cuisine.

publish on kindle in the middle of quarantine: a business that is increasing in latin america.

Have you thought about writing and publishing your book? Most likely, the answer is no or you will see it as complicated and complex because you do not know how to make money by writing books. We have all heard the story of the author who sent his novel to many publishers and was rejected again and again until he abandoned the writer’s dream,

It is not a traditional book because: it is not available on paper, it is not a novel, it does not have 300 pages, you will not find it in a physical bookstore.

wait us in the ebook about luxury travel couple in catalonia and barcelona.

publishers, an obsolete business:

the world of books, as in so many businesses, was controlled by publishers. If you wanted to publish something, you had to do it through it, because it was the way that your physical book would reach the bookshelves (before quarantine. Now with this quarantine, physical books will go down and ebooks will grow. they are already being seen right now with the quarantine)

the problem was more complicated. it was the publisher who decided that the book was good, not your readers, in the event that your book passed, 10-15% of the profits was the author.

with the arrival of the internet and now with this quarantine, this is really coming down. Now anyone can publish your books on amazon, the library with the most customers in the world, in less than 48 hours, for free and receiving 70% of the benefits.

Now that you are realizing that we are in quarantine, you have an incredible business and now is the best time to do it.

because publishing ebooks is the future:

Now in quarantine, many authors earn a lot by writing kindle books. Not everyone earns millions of dollars, but there are many who earn euros or dollars in the month.

here are books writing travel guides and none are professional writers:

judy leigh:

jennifer bonhet:

connor knigton:

janine march:

t.a williams:

What is striking is that this business model follows the same as a niche page: it works once and earns money in years. If you write a book during quarantine, you will work this time and earn money for life. It takes 10 days to write a travel guide and the book makes you earn 200 dollars a month (the dollar is the best way to earn in Latin America) many will be interested in reading this guide for the next 5 years, so you can do the math: $ 200 x12 months x5 years: $ 12,000 for 80 hours of work!

and 1500 euros for an hour of work. needless to say more. In addition, quarantine has increased the reading of ebooks. You can read on your tablet and also on an ereader instead of paper and from now on it is more on the rise.

That is why it is important to write your ebook before and even more in a quarantine.

the mandatory question in quarantine: how to travel in luxury after the coronavirus

The entire planet is going through one of the most complicated periods of the modern era, a pandemic that changes our reality and puts us in difficulties. all sectors undergo major changes, from healthcare to industries and of course, tourism.

there are few certainties of the coronavirus, there is the awareness that we are fragile and vulnerable. human beings, who have been able to resist, adapt or evolve in more serious situations.

others say that they are suffering a shock, perhaps they are small details, the daily life that we will rediscover will no longer be the same.

We want to show with this post about luxury tourism and we will tell you the truth how tourism will change.

There is no scientific data, but that is what we will imagine in the future.

What are the psychological phases we will go through in relation to travel?

fear: it is normal that no one is thinking of traveling at this time. The fear has created a normal fear, also outbreaks are occurring in other countries.

uncertainty: when it becomes “under control” we will start dreaming about traveling. In any case, we will look at the safe areas, the risks that exist and the limitations. Let’s say that with uncertainty a recovery begins, but the future is not clear.

caution: now it is more manageable, the virus is managed (the vaccine can appear in 12 – 18 months) we are close to a vaccine. caution will be a brake.

recovery: travel has been ingrained in us since ancient times, we cannot deny it. Although we are going to be careful and we are going to do it in a safer way (in safe areas and premium commuter tourism will grow and more slow travel)

What are the main changes compared to the coronavirus?

controls at the airport: it is safe when we can travel, we will be subject to more health controls at the airport (travel insurance will increase more we even find the almost the same controls before 11s) in fact it will be a problem, but the lines (even being a first class tourist will be long)

airlines: the companies most affected by the coronavirus are found. air traffic is zero and with the weeks it will be an open wound. some will fail, new ones will emerge, focus and communication with customers will change. it is to be understood and discovered.

ota: like airlines, booking, expedia and others (online travel agency in english) are suffering enormous damage. Before the pandemic, they were the leaders of the tourism sector, controlling communication, focus, standards and consumer wishes. this can alter it, ota can collapse and look for new forms of reservation.

Communication and hotel offers: the world of hotels, hitherto “slaves” of the policies of the giants, is linked to the crisis of the ota (online travel agency) for them it is good disintermediation of the final consumer. It will not be very easy, but it will not be impossible either, the hotels will find fast, captivating and easy-to-use ways to enjoy and not get used to using otas.

the benefits are greater because the trips will be dictated in the next years. This will give a possibility and variety of offers, proposals, flexible and more personalized policies.

Now we are making our ebook of luxury trips and traveling couples and we will be delighted to make a good launch in English.

And since we are also personalized travel consultants and we want to help you when the recovery occurs, we explain it here and we could also work together (taking place with the safest places, slow travel and luxury hotels)

That is going to be our policy: closer trips and if they are far in safe places and luxury hotels so that they do not have to worry about security.

Have a very clear vision of how you want your business in the future. Let this shape your decisions, the content you create, and the experience you give your readers.

Blog correctly, do not do it for free travel, because it is not sustainable.

The important thing is that the best bloggers focus their efforts on many (we will work from now on in the destinations of luxury Couples and leisurely travel and how you can win with your travel blogger endeavor as well, together with guide reviews from travel and travel journal writing, from now on, if you like the idea that’s fine)

El coronavirus podrían tener un fuerte impacto en la industria del lujo
the impact of coronavirus on the luxury industry

The Chinese are the largest consumers of luxury and the confinement will create a loss of income in high quality products, both at home and abroad.

the Chinese consume 33% and 35% of luxury purchases. will increase to 45% in 2025, and most will be in mainland China.

tourism has also been affected. since the wuhan epidemic it has happened that the occupation has decreased to 75% and more with luxury products and high level tourism.

So it’s just waiting for the epidemic to end to revive tourism and shopping for luxury brands.

premium tourism and the coronavirus worldwide

The coronavirus can be said to be a pandemic according to WHO and many will think twice before traveling.

But, people have not realized that if people want to travel they will do it, no matter what happens and one option to travel is premium tourism or luxury tourism.

luxury travel and Coronavirus

luxury tourism is growing for people who have exclusive experiences during their travels. many say that “prices” are innacesible, but the way that their trips can be made in a unique way.

Hotels are not the only ones that take advantage of luxury tourism in Latin America and Colombia. Many think that travel agencies provide first class service to their clients.

we want by all means to be of help to all who follow us and we want to be the first bloggers and influencers to work on luxury tourism (which is to travel without haste and enjoy the local and even the organic)

If you want to enjoy this luxury or premium tourism, we want to talk about it on our trips and also on traveling brands and luxury clothing.
