Mode Mafia

Consumers get a taste for rebellion with gangster-inspired fashion

Implications - While the "bad boy" has been an image used often in pop culture and fashion, going one step further are themes and designs inspired by the modern-day gangster or mobster. Mafia-inspired fashion -- much like its traditional bad boy or girl counterpart -- provides a sexy and rebellious appeal that today's fashion consumers crave. Often, it also offers a more refined look, allowing consumers to maintain polish and a more "grown-up" style.
