Can Sustainability Be Luxurious? a Mixed-Method Investigation of Implicit and Explicit Attitudes Towards Sustainable Luxury Consumption

The present research uses a mixed-method approach to investigate implicit / explicit attitudes towards sustainable luxury. Quantitative results showed participants predominantly associated luxury with unsustainability, clarifying inconsistent results in the literature. Qualitative results depicted a more complex picture, pointing to a contrast between internally and externally-derived labels of sustainable luxury.
