There’s a shift happening with social media campaigns from luxury fashion brands of late – they’re increasingly skewing younger. In a bid to drive engagement with Generation Z (those born beginning in the late ‘90s to early-2000s), they’re turning to platforms like Snapchat and influencers ranging from Kendall Jenner to Brooklyn Beckham.
