Accessorized Tech
Fashion and Tech merge to create subtly stylish and function accessories
Implications - Seeking to further align with consumer lifestyle habits, brands are adapting product designs and aesthetics to be more easily integrated into consumer rituals. Brands, often outside the technology space, are re-designing and adapting their products to be more inclusive of tech and smartphone needs. Offering features like outlets for charging or programmable elements, these examples speak to the desire to not only offer more functional product benefits, but products that better align to daily consumer needs and rituals, often through more hybrid design solutions.
Workshop Question — What do your consumers value most in their day-to-day rituals? How might you target that need more prominently in your products or services?
