This special issue introduces and examines the concept of the “spirit of luxury” through a range of articles and imagery produced by international scholars and artists. Drawing on historical and contemporary contributions, the special issue reconsiders luxury as a philosophical idea. Contemporary, contested, and still deeply meaningful, luxury in the present period is shown to have significant cultural and political manifestations and reverberations.
