In a fast-moving environment and faced by the challenges of globalisation the luxury leaders debate the future of their industry.

Five luxury professionals take the initiative to create the Luxury Future Institute, an international think-tank dedicated to prospective thinking regarding luxury, its outlook, main issues and new ambitions.

The Lyfe federates leaders and best worldwide experts of the luxury sector. It encourages sharing of experience.

As a non-profit organisation it relies on subscriptions and grants from private and public sponsors.


The purpose of the Luxuty Future is twofold:

  • Identify the weak signals and strong trends that will impact the future of luxury allowing decision-makers to define informed strategies for the development of their companies.
  • Favour the personal development of its members through events, conferences and joint-studies initiated across the various international branches of the Institute.


International and independant, the Lyfe federates active members and experts.

Active members are international decision-makers of the luxury sector. They are admitted on a personal basis and through co-opting only.

Experts are identified through the community of members. they are internationally recognised for their expertise.

François Arpels, Kathy O’Meny, Jean-Pierre Mongon, Joel Palix and Thierry-Yves Philippe are the five founders of Luxury Future Institute (the Lyfe).

  • The editing of an annual report.

A l’origine de toute connaissance, nous rencontrons la curiosité ! Elle est une condition essentielle du progrès.

Together let’s create value and boost collective thinking.

The Luxury Future Institute relies every year on the collaboration of corporate and institutional partners that support his purpose and actions.
