Now when the seasons are changing, and for many of us, the weather is turning colder, it is a good time to catch up on all that movie-watching you missed during the fun-sun days of summer.
In our pages this issue – our 3rd issue for 2012 – you will find all kinds of documentary films about LUXURY.

From the vistas of Marbella to the exclusive enclaves of Monaco, to Moscow, Japan and India, you’ll be whisked away and entertained as you relax back in your lounge chair and learn more about Luxury.
For the intellectuals amongst us, we present you Guilty Pleasures: Luxury In Ancient Greece. As much an inquiry into the social-political impacts of luxury as it is an historical look at luxury in the ancient world. And we present for further intellectual gymnastics, Seed And The Future Food, a talk by Vendana Shiva.
If you’re wondering what the future of luxury is nowadays in the wake of the global financial meltdown? We’ve got a documentary for you that highlights the evolution of Sustainable Luxury that is being embraced by the biggest brands: Louis Vuitton, Hermès, Gucci Group (PPR) and more.
We also take you for a ride through the house of mirrors that was the Wall Street and London City excesses of luxury during the heydey of their mockery of a banking “system” – the same system that has landed so many countries and its citizens in such deep financial waters.
And, lest you find this altogether too much focus, we’ve added a documentary about the construction of the tallest building in the world, the Burj al Arab; a flight of fancy about what life is like as when lived as a billionaire; and my favorite, the Secret Life of Dogs, a gem of a short film that tells you why owning a Pet is more than just a Love Luxury.
