LUXURY DE FINED
WWhat is luxury? Everyone has their own intrepretation of what it really means. To some, the word conjures images of rare material objects, while to others it is time spent with loved ones.
The Victoria and Albert Musuem explores such fundamental ideas with ‘ What Is Luxury’. Over 100 objects (from diamond-encrusted crowns to roadkill, vending machines, and more machines stocked with DNA) will be exhibited, which begs the question: How will luxury be addressed in a cultural sense today? Until September 27. www.vam.ac.uk
