Where We’ve Come From and Where We Are Going
It is time for a revolution in luxury. Come along with us, we are leading the way!
Because at EAT LOVE SAVORⓇ and our values that we have stood for since our inception, simply put, “a luxury lifestyle beyond acquisition and where luxury is a state of mind and approach to living”, the time has come for these values and beliefs to take center stage as the world has come into a place of emergence and our need to come back to self.
This return to self is healing, and a return to lives lived with meaning.
A Turning Point Happened: Where Do We Go From Here?
Now in 2020, a global pandemic has occurred that has changed life as we know it. The world has been thrust into this extraordinary life-altering stage of transition. In locking people down in homes, slowing economies, shaking people to their core, we have been placed into a great space for stillness. This stillness has forced upon us an opportunity to reflect, take stock and reevaluate priorities. In stillness, there is an opportunity to gather energies to refocus on rebirth.
Not wanting to miss this chance, we embraced the stillness and focused energies on perfect initiating a rebirth of luxury – a Luxury Renaissance.
And so it begins… EAT LOVE SAVORⓇ declares a Luxury Revolution!
We want this renaissance to have meaning and depth of purpose so we formed an alliance with Dr. Martina Olbertova, Founder and CEO of Meaning.Global and author of The Luxury Report: Redefining The Future Meaning Of Luxury. Martina is the world’s leading authority on creating meaning in luxury. She is a brand advisor, cultural strategist, social scientist and semiotician on a mission to redefine the role of meaning in business. Her aim is to teach the industry how to lead with meaning to enhance real value creation, relevance and meaningful growth in the 21st century.
Together with friends, partners and special guests, we are leading the way forward with the vision to elevate the luxury conversation and create new knowledge. We are creating a global community of like-minded people who share the same vision with us and want to support the initiative. This platform gives us a unique meeting place to voice diverse perspectives and bring the knowledge and insight from the fringes back to the epicenter of the discussion.
With our guest, in each episode, we take a deep dive into exploring a particular topic, and engage in a more in depth and richer conversation with an educational purpose. All together we are building the foundational blocks for the paradigm shift to the new luxury and facilitating the transition for a new world. Out of these conversations we will gain a richer context to pave a new way for brands, giving them actionable insights on how to take on future challenges in luxury and to elevate the overall meaning for the betterment of the entire industry.
Why We’re Doing This and What We Want to Achieve
We want to help everyone – brands and people – raise their awareness and consciousness around the newly emerging paradigm of luxury for the New World.
“The sudden coronavirus crisis has revealed the weak links in our culture and society and cast light on what’s long been missing from our lives, but we were just too busy to pay attention to – and that something is meaning. Through fully embracing the consumer culture, our lives have become devoid of meaning. We are starved out for real meaning in our lives: for a human connection, lasting values and things, moments and experiences that we truly care about.
We are going through a profound psycho-spiritual crisis which is reflected through the meaninglessness of the Western culture and what our lives have become. We want to help people, brands and businesses bring their conscious attention and awareness back to the lasting values and the essence of life.
We want to show what luxury truly means and drive the luxury conversation away from opulence and flashy status symbols back to its core essence: adding value to people’s everyday lives and elevating their quality of life by embracing the values of aesthetics, love, creativity, passion and spirituality in a new and more essential way,” says Dr. Martina Olbertova, co-creator of the Luxury Renaissance show and Founder of Meaning.Global.
Says Angela Tunner, co-creator of the Luxury Renaissance show and Founder, Editor-in-Chief and Publisher of EAT LOVE SAVORⓇ International luxury lifestyle magazine, “We are at a life-altering turning point. Life as we know it has forever changed. During the time pre-COVID-19, the divide between truly understanding luxury and its shape-shifting form heavily influenced by the magpie effect of shiny objects, a distracting superficial lens taking us even farther away from ourselves and robbed luxury of meaning. Luxury had meaning in the past before it became a meritocracy. It was heavily enrobed in it, but the effects of the democracy of luxury eroded its gilding and rendered it detached from its core, rooted in humanity.
From here, we can come back to humanity, a deeper sense of self and human experience, healing, a coming back into ourselves with needed meaning and to place the meaning back into luxury. People over the past decades have become so disconnected from their senses, which is why in part luxury has turned toward vulgarity instead of sensuality. There is a great misunderstanding about the depths of the luxury lifestyle experience and all it entails. We want to add more depth and meaning to reconnect to ourselves and the world around us, injecting more feeling, emotion, enhancing people’s lives, and adding more value inside and out.
There is a tremendous opportunity in this moment and in luxury. Strip away materialism from luxury and you have a perfect vehicle that can transform the superficial to substance. Luxury mindset is the catalyst to return to meaning and return to ourselves, our humanity and how we live. Not just about brands and businesses, it’s fundamental for we are more than mere data and marketing targets, we are a people, creators, human beings and culture”.
