The Walpole Book of British Luxury is our annual love letter to the UK luxury sector, highlighting the full spectrum of our organisation's membership and work, as well as featuring notable names speaking on the trends that will get getting our industry talking over the coming year.
As we move into a new national era under a new monarch, our 2023/2024 edition looks to ask the question, "who do we think we are?" What are the characteristics that will come to define Britishness over the coming years? Inside the edition, we have a selection of inspiring essays that explore just that, penned by writers including the Evening Standard's Jimi Famurewa, ELLE UK’s Kenya Hunt, ELLE Decoration’s Ben Spriggs and more, as well as best-selling authors such as Raven Smith, Tristram Hunt and Roxie Nafousi.
As Britain’s luxury brands emerge from the pandemic with renewed vigour, the Walpole Book of British Luxury 22/23 takes a detailed look at all the things that make our country a key player to a high-end aficionado on both the domestic and international stage.
This year’s edition – with exquisite cover artwork designed by Cole & Son – features essays from a host of the world’s leading luxury commentators including Esquire’s Alex Bilmes, ELLE UK’s Farrah Storr, The Economist’s Tom Standage, The Telegraph’s Sasha Slater and many more.
