Coffee Table Books

The Economic Times Best Lifestyle Brands 2018


Brands can be many things to many people. But fundamentally, they denote a deep, emotive connection that is almost unshakeable. However, nurturing this connection demands a commitment to continuous reinvention, which is much easier said than done. Some brands, however, have embraced this idea whole-heartedly, in the process creating brands that have not just survived, but thrived as they stood the test of time.

As India has evolved, so too have our needs and lifestyles. In many ways, we view the brands we choose as an extension of ourselves, and The Economic Times Best Lifestyle Brands shines a spotlight on leading lifestyle brands that are not only moving with the times, but redefining growth in an ever-evolving world order.

The Economic Times Best Lifestyle Brands recognizes and applauds class-leading lifestyle brands that have elevated themselves from being merely a label to a part of folklore, forever to be adored and emulated.

The 1st edition of this landmark coffee table book will be unveiled at the 2nd Edition of The Economic Times India-UAE Strategic Conclave, taking place on October 10th in Abu Dhabi, UAE. Featuring successful brand stories, strategies successful in retaining consumer loyalty, and outlining the journey of pre-eminent lifestyle brands, the book is a compilation of insightful and inspiring stories of Lifestyle brands that have become an indispensable part of consumer’s lives.
