"Luxury" - the name of this opulent coffee table book alone says it all. It's all about aesthetics, decadence, beauty, trends, glamour, and money. The well-known photographer, journalist, brand and communications consultant Michael Köckritz has taken a detailed look at this fascinating world of the rich, celebrities and stars in his latest coffee table book. In an impressive visual language, backed by informative texts, he shows the most important luxury brands of our modern times. Watches, cars, bags, buildings, holiday resorts and jewellery, the author touches on all luxury-related subject areas and unerringly pinpoints the respective key items.
Köckritz approaches the phenomenon of luxury from an artistic-scientific perspective and sheds light on profound questions such as "What is luxury?", "Why do we strive for luxury?" or "How does luxury affect the reality of our lives?".
In doing so, the author does not want to show off. As an expert, the philosophical, psychological and sociological aspects of the phenomenon of luxury are important to him. And in an almost admirable way, he succeeds in doing justice to this scientific claim and at the same time, with his magnificent photos, draws the reader into the spell of this world geared towards beauty and perfection.
"Luxury" is bursting with outstanding images and high-quality texts. The coffee table book embodies its own theme to perfection and thus becomes an art project that is even accompanied by an art exhibition and a film/moving image production.
This coffee table book is the perfect gift for anyone fascinated by the emotions and myths surrounding luxury.
