Conference Details : The 2020 ‘In Pursuit of Luxury’ conference continues to provide a platform to expand our understanding of luxury. As with our previous three conferences we look forward to welcoming contributions from various disciplines and practices, across the academic and commercial sectors, including automotive, architecture, engineering, fashion, product, digital design, retail, and hospitality. Our aim is to explore all of these subject areas through a critical lens, to encourage debate about changing notions of luxury. The conference will take technology as its focal point and will look to investigate how luxury is changing under the influence and impact of innovative and transformative technologies of production, distribution and experience. In addition, the conference will continue to explore how democratised mass luxury commodities ask us to reconsider our definitions of luxury, as well as the importance and ethics of embedding sustainablecircular practices of luxury, at the points of manufacturing, distribution and consumption. Finally, when we say ‘innovative’, what, exactly do we mean within the luxury context? The 2020 IPOL conference will be held in collaboration with FiP – Fashion in Process, research laboratory at the Design Department – Politecnico di Milano co-chaired by Associate Professor, Dr Chiara Colombi.
