Luxury Consumer Science publishes insights and resources on why people desire and purchase high priced luxury goods.

Our journalistic approach to consumer science takes into account history, sociology, anthropology, economics, and the rise of consumerism. We write about culture and branding to get to the core of this quickly evolving landscape of luxury consumer science.
