What does luxury mean to you? Is it a quest for luxury to fly first class arriving at the same time as those in coach? Is it luxury to purchase exclusive, expensive brands of clothing at full price?

If it isn’t luxury, what is it? Is choosing luxury a form of self-expression? Expressive Age wants to know!

I was so pleased to discover that there is some serious thinking about redefining luxury. Parsons School of Design, New York City, has launched an initiative to celebrate:

a moment of change where advances in biotechnology may make material rarity obsolete; advances in digital technology and social media have created new expectations that remove authority from a single source; consumers are valuing experiences over physical product, and developments in AI and blockchain will change our decision-making processes.

Who thought that first class could be so deep? Congratulations to those who are exploring its redefinition!
