The ubiquitous nature of designer goods becomes a marketing tool for artists
Implications - As the luxury becomes ubiquitous, artists and imitators are reinterpreting trademarks as a way to feed off of pre-established infamy and appeal to consumers unable to afford such products. Legal issues surrounding trademark and intellectual property have become skewed in the Internet age and the web has also given rise to a culture of remix. Brands who embrace crowd-created expressions of their logos and iconography, will appeal and connect to digital natives more that than brands who choose to staunchly protect the proliferation of their labels.

Demand for fast fashion gives rise to printed wares for quick distribution
Implications - The fast fashion market has quick turnarounds to saturate the market in the latest wares in mere days, but as the globalization of clothing continues, so does the quest to deliver goods even faster. 3D printing has left few areas of production untouched and is being adopted by the fashion industry as a means to digitally send products as opposed to shipping. As online shopping takes more focus off of physical retailers, garment printing is evolving to be a staple process that could enter consumer homes sooner than anticipated for a 'purchase and print' style of shopping.

Pricey takes on grunge lets consumers take part without sacrificing quality
Implications - The popularity of purposely worn-out fashion is at a high, and to bridge the gap between high-end consumers and the lower-end side of fashion, upscale designers are producing their own takes on this look. This approach allows for consumers to take part in a novel shift without moving too far from their established shopping habits. [More]

High fashion gadget cases appeal to label-conscious consumers
Implications - Although everyone may have the same tablet or phone, tech consumers know that one area they can differentiate themselves is their gadget cases. Because couture fashion consumers love labels and high-end designer products, meeting the need of this market group is as simple as a designer extending his product line to include tech accessories. From Louis Vuitton to Marc Jacobs, fashion houses are joining in on the techcessories craze. [More]

High-end rentals allow less affluent consumers temporary indulgences
Implications - In 2009, we discovered 'Rental Culture,' in which consumers were renting everything from art to apparel in an effort to save money during the recession. Now, consumers have more discretionary income at their fingertips and are thus going bigger with their rentals. Renting a couture gown or luxury vehicle is less costly than actually purchasing it, which helps to alleviate feelings of buyer's remorse or guilt, and they also allow the less wealthy the chance to reward themselves with some much-deserved indulgence, if only for a day or two.

Designers are incorporating the traditional print into elegant products for menswear, dog clothing, interior design and kitchen accessories. No longer indicative of innocence, polka dots are now more readily used by designers. [More]

Fashion channels a more refined free spirit
Implications - The hippie style currently making way in fashion and design trends is an updated version of the 1960s and 1970s wild child. The haute hippie is groovy without the grunge. The revival of bohemian hones in on a more modern and clean spirit than previous decades in order to allow for hippie fashions in any setting--even the workplace. [More]

In a time of crisis, people are rethinking their values
Implications - As social norms and ethics change, adapting to new values is critical. While hunting for sport or wearing fur were once deemed glamorous, they became taboo in the last decades. Now, however, buying vintage or fakes has led to a reassessment of values. It's wise to revisit the past if new attitude shifts will accommodate. [More]

Chains, studs, and leather give our wardrobes a hardened edge
Implications - Out with the frilly and romantic; in with the rough and the tough. Biker-inspired fashions were incorporated onto runways and editorials for several seasons, leading to a love affair with chains, studs, biker gloves, and tons of leather. The biker-babe resurgence offers a glimmer of the retro theme, but ultimately points to a harder, more callous vibe in clothing preference. [More]
