Abstract

Luxury has been both celebrated and condemned throughout history right up to the present day. This text examines luxury and its relationship with desire, status, consumption and economic value, exploring why luxury remains prominent even in the context of a global recession. Jade Montserrat recommends this read to those interested in fashion studies, cultural studies and sociology.
