Nostalgic Barrette

Retro-inspired hair accessories re-emerge as definitive statement pieces

Trend - Brands both large and small are looking to the '90s for hair accessory inspiration in the form of statement barrettes. A simple yet definitive statement accessory, this shift highlights the progression from that of whimsical origins to a place of utilitarianism, undoubtedly informed by the emergence of normcore over the last decade.

Insight - Social media gives the Millennial demographic a platform to bond over nostalgia and the fond memories associated with products from past eras. As a result, they look for ways to incorporate nostalgic elements into their current lives. Millennials will seek out ways to adorn their otherwise adult lives with items that evoke blissful reminders of their childhood.
Workshop Question - What nostalgic designs can you look to in order for inspirations that reflect the contemporary obsession with simplicity and functionality?
