{Luxe Year in Review} The Best of 2016

So this year wasn’t too kind to us as a collective group. We lost some of our most beloved artists and celebrities like Prince, David Bowie, and Carrie Fisher; regardless of political affiliations, most Americans feel like we all lost in the presidential elections; Brexit happened to our fellow UK friends across the pond; the Zika virus took many hostage; hostilities climaxed in police shootings and civil unrest; terror attacks across the globe; Syria; and somehow we still haven’t managed to lose Kanye West.

But it wasn’t all bad. In fact, there were a few really enjoyable moments. Amazon started delivering by drone; designers started focusing on body positive movements – France even banned using models below a healthy weight; PokemonGo offered not only the game, but also entertainment for those of us around who got to watch them become the latest candidates for Darwin awards when they walk out into traffic, eyes glued to their phone; Beyonce’s Lemonade, Stranger Things, Chewbacca Mom, Snapchat Filters on EVERYTHING, Ryan Lochte not getting mugged at the Rio Olympics, and Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton were highlights of our pop culture; the National Museum of African American History opened; and Elon Musk rolled out a Tesla attainable to the masses and announced a home solar panel project because he’s eco-responsibility business winning.
