Luxe Magazine is a bi-monthly publication which launched in 2009. It was born from the desire to showcase the very best the North East region has to offer and over the past 14 years has established itself as the region’s dedicated voice of authority on luxury, style and living. Luxe has championed its Regional, Relevant and Entertaining philosophy for over a decade, both informing and influencing its readers. The original team who launched Luxe hailed from Room501 publishing and the title has been entwined in the careers of Allies Group senior managers ever since. In that time it has also been accepted as one of the most influential publications throughout the region.
Luxe Magazine is Allies Group’s own title with an average readership of 50,000. It features the region’s most influential people in a publication carefully crafted for a targeted audience with high spending power. Lifestyle content covers interviews with well-known faces, as well as the best in food, arts and culture, fashion, beauty, interiors, motors and places to visit. Luxe is hand-delivered to postcode sectors with an average house value of £1m, luxury venues throughout the region and a list of long standing loyal subscribers.
Initially the challenge was to establish Luxe Magazine as an authority in the North East luxury publication sector. To achieve this the Luxe Magazine team have to consistently produce a magazine that is high quality in production and content.
The approach has been and always will be to offer exclusive, considered and entertaining content which will appeal to a high-spending demographic aged 35 plus. The brief is always based on audience and customer retention while ensuring high standards at all times – across both the print publication and our digital channels.
