Product Description

Review

"He clearly illustrates that luxury transcends categories, even in areas where non-consumption activist movements shun excessive consumption and promote simple living (chapter 20). In fact, there is very little in daily life that does not have the capacity of being exposed to the draw of luxury, from food (chapter 16) and drink (chapters 14 and 15) to domestic help (chapter 19)." (Natalina Zlatevska, Assistant Professor, Bond University Australia)

Book Description

Luxury World is a captivating investigation of genuine luxury brands - the marketing strategies they use to position themselves as truly elite products or services, who their customers are and how they retain them, and the future for the industry now excess is out of fashion.

Adding substance to the concept of Lux 21 Jan. 2013
By Andre Phillip - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Though an admirer of luxury goods I am a consumer only in a limited fashion and never of overtly branded items. Never-the-less I'm fascinated with understanding what propels the market; whether it's the product quality and workmanship or a frailty of our thinking and emotion which compels us to crave the association.

The book Luxury World, in its sublimely readable style, properly researched and opinioned, has gone a long way assisting the understanding of why and wherefore we crave to identify with luxury. I appreciate the insights from the creators of the craft, with whom I certainly would never have the opportunity to directly communicate.

Someone had to do it and this writer/journalist has done it exceptionally well.

An excellent read for anyone genuinely interested, for business or personal reasons, in the luxury goods world.
A must-have for People interested in Luxury Marketing 14 Nov. 2012
By Catchy Phrases - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This Book it's a winning combination of a Journey across Monte-Carlo, the Champagne House of France, the Diamond district of Antwerp and the very interesting Interviews with Industry Insiders. Luxury World is the most unique source anywhere of a behind the facades of the world's most sophisticated businesses, to show you how they function, their Mystique and Romance. It's unique Style has become an Hallmark, and what I love the most, is the "Behind the Scenes" with the Marketing Managers, CEO, and Directors of very prestigious Brands.

From High Jewelry, Watchmakers, Fractional High Flyers, Super Yachts, Haute Property, Deluxe Nomads, Art Brands, Digital Luxury, Superior Chefs, Well being and Concierge Services, the Author covers them all!

From the same Author I have bought: Media Monoliths, Brande Male & Fashion Brands. All his Books are like a breath of Fresh Air, that can be read in an afternoon. I am an absolute Fan of this Book!
