G5. the Phenomenon of Brand Noise and Related Consumer Preferences in the Luxury Industry

This paper introduces the concept of brand noise as a new comprehensive approach to “loud” and “quiet” luxury branding. Further, we empirically show that consumer preferences toward loud and quiet goods are not always driven by social status but also by personality traits such as extraversion and openness to experience.
