Top 35 Unique Trends in August

From Smoked Salmon Candies to Condiment-Inspired Ice Creams

— August 18, 2019 — Unique
If you're bored with generic products, then the August 2019 unique trends round-up is sure to spike your interest. The examples here are quite outlandish — some too progressive to try, others too enticing not to. Everything is dependent on personal preference, however.

Some of the spotlighted trends include smoked Atlantic salmon candy from the Acme Smoked Fish Corporation, as well as a collaboration between the Coolhaus & French's who launch a condiment-inspired ice cream in honor of National Mustard Day.

Aside from food, the August 2019 unique category calls attention to Iris Van Herpen's kinetic fashion debut for Paris Haute Couture Week, which stunned audiences with hypnotic sculptural wear, as well as the Nissan Altima Bio-Color which determined the color of a car, based on the genetics of the driver.
