Luxury Through the Ages
We explore all that glitters in Abu Dhabi in our film about luxury, desire and derision.
We delve into the world of luxury with art historian Alastair Sooke, and ask what it is about luxury that inspires both desire and derision. Our journey starts with the oldest pearl in known existence at the Louvre Abu Dhabi’s 10,000 Years of Luxury exhibition. We explore how taste, place and power combined, to create surprising cultural trends throughout our history. We meet with curators, cultural ambassadors and lifestyle critics to ask them whether luxury is a personal indulgence or conspicuous consumption.
