Luxury executives gathered Nov. 11-13 in Hong Kong for The New York Times International Luxury Conference to discuss how political and economic shifts are impacting the business.

Themed "What's Next: The New Luxury World (Dis)Order," the conference's speakers weighed in on everything from the impending trade war between the United States and China to sustainability. In many ways, the status quo is shifting as companies adjust to a more digital, disrupted market.

Here are some of the best photos from The New York Times International Luxury Conference:
