Luxebook Jan-Feb 2024

IThe first issue of the year deserves our full enthusiasm. For the yearly reset, we have gone back to the drawing books, as the saying goes, and looked in-depth at every sector, from fashion to jewellery to furniture, dissecting how elevated they are to put them in the luxury category. 2024 has been declared a year of rest post manic revenge shopping, revenge vacations and chasing the hottest things/trends. The Hilton 2024 Trends Report, which surveyed more than 10,000 travellers across nine countries, for instance, predicts travellers of all ages will prioritise rest and relaxation, value connectivity and personalisation above everything else. This trend will continue across industries and brands that have a ‘better-for-you’ ethic will gain popularity. Buying into this ethic, we look at houses designed as masterpieces for that year of recharge, sustainable furniture, a return to heritage jewellery, the history of timepieces, a wholesome journey across Phuket and much more.
