Superluxe: Luxury Branding Is A Joke

Superluxe: Luxury Branding Is A Joke

Crystal Chou, a graduate student at the Academy of Art University, San Francisco, recently presented her thesis project, Superluxe.

She explains:

“The design project takes form as a window installation of a one-stop-shop selling do-it-yourself instant luxury branding tools. The shop is intended to poke fun at the elitist luxury industry and demonstrate that anyone can create their own luxury empire based on the current industry’s formulaic branding strategies. Through this satiric commentary, the project encourages that the luxury industry move towards a new humble business model of experimentation and creativity.”
