Secoo held a brand upgrade press conference in Beijing on 17th April 2018. There it announced its new slogan ‘devoted to you’ and discussed the brand’s expansion plans to the public.
A luxurious offer
The China-based company aims to ‘redefine luxury with authenticity, services and lifestyle’, and will now continue these efforts by branching beyond its premium e-commerce platform to enter into the premium lifestyle sphere.
To move forward, Secoo will now add business services and improve solutions for prestige items. This strategy strives to not only offer luxury products including high-end beauty and personal care labels and items but also to offer an overall lifestyle premium opportunity.
"Secoo is emphasizing the importance of lifestyle, luxury e-commerce is only the carrier for us," explained Richard, Rixue Li, the founder and CEO of Secoo Group.
As it expands its business to “satisfy comprehensive demands for consumers”, Secoo aims to build an offline and online integrated platform.
Sharing his ideas on how premium buyers will use its public-facing platform, Rixue added: “Consumers can not only buy luxury products from our platform, they can also communicate and interact in our physical stores, they can enjoy the best services that other platform cannot offer.”
