Who Thought of Thoughtful Luxury?

Archana Kumari of Frazer and Haws:

 

Business Today, recently reported on a growing movement, a phenomena, referred to as thoughtful luxury, in India. Quietly as it may seem thoughtful luxury has been around, for eons but it was mostly seen in architecture, museums and interior designs.  

As Business Today puts it, ”Globally, there is a big movement from conspicuous consumption to conscious or conscientious consumption.

It began in the recession-hit West as it was forced to embrace austere chic. The slow fashion movement, the slow food movement, all started influencing the luxury market.

For example, Yves Saint Laurent created a line of clothing made from unused fabrics from its past collections. Several luxe fashion brands opted to go for products made by hand and made to endure for decades.”

The movement even caught the eyes of Florentine fashion house Gucci. They came up with an eco-friendly bio plastic range of footwear to show Gucci’s commitment to nature.

But to top it all off, they created a new Gucci Responsibility logo. Hey they talking about sustainability and ethical luxury, here alright.

Who would have thought? The movement has gone beyond luxury designers of fashion. One hotel chain, Starwood’s brand Element has made Eco-friendliness its USP.

As Puri says: “Luxury is not buying into labels for status, but buying into beliefs, that is, organic and ethical.” Price is no longer an indicator of luxury, says Arun Marc DSilva, India head of watch brand Frederique Constant, says: “It’s how the brand is perceived, how the brand reaches out to society, and how it demonstrates its commitment to social obligations.”

Of course, being socially conscious is largely a western movement and is taking time to percolate into India, but several brands have already made the leap.
