True Tales of Luxury — The Podcast

Presented by Mariella Frostrup.


What is luxury now? Is it craftsmanship or beauty? Is it memories or moments? Is it collaboration or knowledge, activism or emotion? In this series, Harrods explores people’s ideas of what luxury is. As the future of 21st-century luxury is redefined, listen with Mariella as she asks chefs, designers, artists and more to share their own personal tales of luxury.

  • "In True Tales of Luxury, I’ll be talking to some of the most successful and fascinating people in the creative industry about their lives and their relationship with luxury."
