The luxury sector is seeing one of the most revolutionizing trends at the moment, where businesses use real life metaphors to communicate by way of “anchored” memories. These “memories” are the key characteristics of the products consumers are purchasing. According to Wealth-X, 45 percent of a millionaire’s disposable income is spent on experience versus a 23 percent investment on luxury products.
This new augmented luxury experience has also migrated to the most expensive and exclusive hotels of the world where the concept of the “invisible room,” - lodging only available to well-connected, privileged clients, neither communicated about, nor known by the public–can be booked for an insane price.
