I think there’s a huge market for luxury brands in the digital nomad space, we’ve a huge amount of disposable income, an inability to buy large qualities of anything. What we do buy we choose carefully and have no problem spending high amounts on something when we only have 20-30 items to our name.
I’ve yet to find a decent pair of trainers that look good and last more than 6 months before they fall apart. Given the consumerist lifestyle of the general public people own more than 1 pair of shoes and more than 3 T-shirts, the quality and durability of these items is not for someone that uses the items every day, they just don’t last and I would welcome some serious innovation in this space.
Apple is the perfect example without meaning to be, very high quality products, expensive but last.
We choose carefully but when we choose price is not the defining factor, but I’ve not had much luck finding premium stuff for nomads, your standard designer or premium stuff is still not designed to be worn/used every day and falls apart as quick as cheap items.
