Top 100 Ultra Luxury Trends in 2013

From Glass Igloo Hotels to Aviation-Inspired Cars

— January 5, 2014 — Luxury
The Ultra Luxury Fashion Trend Report will allow you to have the foresight into what ultra luxury trends will be important to take into account for the next one to four years.

Publishing hundreds of ideas in this category, Trend Hunter has seen several ultra luxury ideas positioned around the idea of accommodation and travel. Glass igloo hotels, cliffside residences and modern luxe abodes are just a few ways that luxury has been taken to the next level in 2013.

More traditional ideas of luxury are also still prevalent. Diamond-encrusted watches, decadent yachts and rare automobiles are all examples that would fit under this category. It seems that since the recession hit, some consumers were not impacted and continue to crave goods that convey status and prestige to the outside world.
