50° What is Luxury today??

Hello 360° Followers

Today I would like to discuss a little bit through an ironic-art-perspective  kind of way  about Luxury. I found some nice examples which are in my opinion related to the question “What is Luxury today?”

May you get some inspiration and it would be very interested to have some comments.
