Communicating Responsible Luxury Brand: The Role of Luxury-CSR Fit and Dispositional Consensus on Brand Evaluation

Communicating Responsible Luxury Brand: The Role of Luxury-CSR Fit and Dispositional Consensus on Brand Evaluation

Purpose – This study attempts to extend the research in responsible luxury by identifying contexts where Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) can promote luxury brands’ evaluation. It contributes to the literature on consumer responses to CSR, and to responsible luxury in particular and demonstrates how dispositional consensus and luxury-CSR information of luxury brands affects consumers’ evaluation of brand. Research design, data, and methodology – An experiment was conducted to test the relationship between brand evaluation and responsible luxury brands’ CSR information using collected data through a survey in a large university of South Korea. Study conditions were manipulated with various product types to analyze the relationship in different product domains. Results – When consensus regarding sincere and altruistic motive of companies for CSR activity is high, the perceived fit between luxury brand and the type of CSR has no effect on brand evaluation. But, in case of lower consensus regarding the benevolent company motives, higher fit enhances evaluation than lower fit. Conclusions – In using consensus as a guiding factor to choose the type of charity with favorably view, the level of irrespective fit can help luxury firms to enjoy the benefits of better image. In case of low consensus donating to charities that are closely related to the brands’ product or area of business seems to be fruitful.
