Aesthetic Indulgence

The design industry embraces a calorie-packed, yet guilt-free aesthetic

Implications - Indulgence is less of a priority in this health-conscious age than it was previously. To combat this, consumers are seeking a way to express gluttony in other places. This has resulted in the adaptation of confection as an aesthetic. Not only is this look indulgent in its nod toward calorie-packed edibles; its childlike, lighthearted tone allows consumers to express a less serious side of their personalities.
