Fashion studies’ move toward non-Western, non-traditional modes of exploring sartorial history (cf. The Fashion History Reader: Global Perspectives, Riello and McNeil, 2010) and the rise of critical luxury studies (cf. Luxury. A Rich History, Riello and McNeil, 2016; Critical Luxury Studies. Art, Media, Design, Armitage and Roberts, eds., 2016) indicates a renewed interest in the ways that objects interact with the body and vice versa. Scholars have begun to study how luxury and fashion objects interact with consumers, designers, and manufacturers in a new light, focusing, for example, on non-hegemonic fashion makers and consumers.
