  2. Maybe Burberry was one of the first to open a Tmall store, cause now I feel like there are a lot of luxury brands on Tmall no?

    1. The number is increasing yes, but it is still abysmal.
      Many of them are on the Luxury Pavillion section of Tmall which is not that easily accessible but that has the advantage to be for Luxury Brand only, giving those brands a platform for themselves.
