Lexus launches luxury styleguide

It's not very clear to me what Lexus has in mind with the launch of Luxury Awaits. According to the press release of the agency who did the job, "the website is designed for the women who reach for the first time the world of luxury".


The site contains editorial tips for a luxury lifestyle from travel to art, fashion and food. The idea is not bad, but the outcome is disappointing. Everything looks so fake, and you wonder why a luxury brand has to be didascalic and simplicistic to explain what luxury is about. Luxury is about showing, not telling... and If you really want to tell, there are much better ways to do it! Think, for example, about the Louis Vuitton travel guides launched last year.
