Influential Brands, Industry-Leading Executives & Celebrity VIPs Discuss the Evolving Concept of Luxury
NEW YORK, NY (May 3, 2016) — Robb Report, the leading voice in luxury, targets the ever-evolving definition of luxury in its May issue, now on newsstands. Featuring interviews with Academy Award–nominated actor Jeremy Renner and 10 innovators who are transforming the 21st-century lifestyle, Robb Report examines the individuals and brands whose bold values, groundbreaking technologies, and innovative ideas are reshaping the concept of what it means to live well today and in the future.
Jeremy Renner graces the cover of the May issue; in an exclusive interview, the movie star discusses his work in another realm: home design and development. Renner, who also runs his own production company, spoke with Robb Report about a successful career that defies convention in Hollywood and beyond.
Acclaimed writer, editor, and former Los Angeles Times fashion critic Booth Moore offers her expertise in the issue’s spotlight feature, “The New Luxury.” This special report on the state of the luxury market also presents views from outspoken executives—such as Abercrombie & Kent’s Geoffrey Kent, Ralph Lauren’s David Lauren, Chopard’s Caroline Scheufele, and Rolls-Royce Motor Cars’ Torsten Müller-Ötvös—offering their insights into the future of luxury amid the industry’s unprecedented transformation brought about by emerging economies, evolving tastes, and revolutionary technologies.
“Robb Report has served its readers and respected partners as the trusted authority on luxury for four decades, and those of us who are the current stewards of the brand continue to pride ourselves on providing insights and ongoing education on the products, destinations, and services that truly offer our audience a best-of-the-best experience,” said editor in chief Brett Anderson. “In this special and timely issue, the editors bring into focus the market dynamics, shifting values, and social trends that are reshaping our concepts of luxury today. The compelling perspectives shared by thought leaders from a wide variety of industries make this particular edition of Robb Report not only a fascinating read but also, in effect, a road map to the future of the luxury market.”
A special section in the May issue unveils Robb Report Home & Style’s Ultimate Home 2016. Thanks to the ingenuity of interior designer Lori Morris and architect Lorne Rose, this newly built English-style manor house in Toronto feels simultaneously grounded in old-world tradition and steeped in modern interpretations of glamour and comfort—a combination so winning that Robb Report Home & Style’s editors anointed the residence this year’s Ultimate Home.
