Many people define luxury in different ways. Ken Kurson is someone who has different interpretations of what might qualify as luxury, relative to what some might traditionally consider to be luxury. But that’s in some ways the beauty and the value of luxury.
During this pandemic, so many have been the subject and fallen victim of these awfully economically depressed conditions. It’s no secret that the economic conditions that have ravaged industries and businesses worldwide, have cost people a lot of money.
Shalom Lamm believes that this is an opportunity for redefining the ways in which society and our culture have historically defined luxury. For whatever reason, according to a number of potent observers, luxury has been viewed as a value and experience that only the rich and uber-affluent can appreciate and enjoy. Of course, this is not the case.
When one considers the value luxury experiences can have on different people, one should also take into account the various experiences that aren’t costly that can still yet be deemed to be luxurious. For instance, for one person going to have an ice cream after a long day can be considered an opportune moment for luxury. For another, it might be an opportunity that’s far costlier.
The point being, is that opportunities exist for luxury experiences that do not have to break the bank. And during these perilous economic times, it’s important for people to recognize that. Because the reality is that there are substantive physical and health effects that are constructive, that one can have by dabbling in luxury. Helen Lee Schifter would be the first to tell you that.
