Publishing with In Pursuit of Luxury

Our publications address questions such as: how sustainable is a luxury model dictated to by fashion and business, which requires ever-larger segments of the global population to consume and produce luxury, in faster cycles? What are the costs of continuing along this trajectory, and indeed what are the forces that create and fulfil the desire for luxury, and that uphold its existence in a variety of incarnations along a continuum stretching from the bespoke and rarefied to "new" luxury?

We are delighted to announce the publication of the first of two In Pursuit of Luxury Special Issues of the Journal of Design, Business & Society, published by Intellect.

The first special issue: Volume 4.2, is entitled 'Producing Luxury' is available here.

Editor: Dr Veronica Manlow, Brooklyn College

The second special Issue: Volume 5.2 is entitled ‘The Space of Luxury’ and is due for publication in October 2019

Editor: Dr. Shaun Borstrock, University of Hertfordshire
