Presented by Mariella Frostrup.


In Season one, we kicked off our exploration of what luxury means today. Host Mariella Frostrup quizzed the industry’s top creative minds about the definition of luxury – from Roksanda on what makes clothes luxury and the allure of jewels with Stephen Webster to the divine indulgence of food with chef Jackson Boxer and more. Revisit the series below.

Episode One: Stephen Webster

Episode Two: David Batchelor

We hear artist David Batchelor, creator of wonderful colour-filled installations, discuss the relationship between art, colour and luxury. Then he reveals something that came from inside a volcano.

Episode Three: Amanda Wakeley

A Royally-favoured designer, OBE Amanda Wakeley takes us on a walk down a fashionable memory lane, from her favourite teenage looks to her mission to empower and elevate women.

Episode Four: Jackson Boxer

Top London chef and restaurateur Jackson Boxer takes us back to where his love of food was born, his history as a bad-boy chef and the story behind his favourite knife.

Episode Five: Roksanda Ilinčić

Episode Six: Terry de Gunzberg

In this exclusive bonus episode, beauty industry trailblazer Terry de Gunzburg talks to Mariella about her addiction to buying shoes, how she believes make-up should enhance our beauty and never be used to hide what is natural, and the development of her 'haute couleur' bespoke colour creation service.
