Deluxe: How Luxury Lost Its Lustre
Fashion may be fabulous, but what price true luxury? With incredible access to the glamourous world of the luxury brand, Deluxe goes deep inside the workings of profit margins and market share to discover the fate of real luxury. From the importance of fashion moguls, to red carpet stars and the seasonal 'must have' handbags, Dana Thomas shows how far illustrious houses have moved from their roots. Thomas witnesses how these 'luxury' handbags are no longer one in a million, discovers why luxury brand clothing doesn't last as long, and finds out just who is making your perfume.
"Thomas's message is relevant to shoppers of every stripe."
"Great eversion therapy... we suspect we're being fleeced, but we don't know with what cynical dedication."
