What is, and what was luxury? This publication celebrates a world history of the lavish and the luxurious, through 350 extraordinary
objects - fashion, jewellery, art, furniture, design and more.
Discover how different cultures have defined luxury and the impact of such excess on the evolution of society, as a way to undermine or underline the status quo.
Consider the prominent role of women in defining luxury and with it, the ebb and flow between excess and moderation.
