Sharing and Social Bonds, a Disruptive View of Luxury

This research aims to study the multiple meanings of luxury in the consumer society. To address this objective, an interpretive study based on verbal accounts and visual methods was carried out. Findings illustrate that sharing, togetherness, belongingness, and the gregarious self are keys in understanding the contemporary view of luxury.
