Geriatric Couture Seniors become the anti-fashion inspiration for young people Implications - Geriatric-inspired fashion is gaining ground in both personal and runway style. Looking to their grandparent’s closets, young people are finding madcap prints, old-school crochet and excessive embroidery à la mode. By remixing what was previously considered bland, the modern granny style can be considered anti-fashion for those looking to rebel against more trendy ensembles.

Modern Kidvertising Marketers call on an adult sensibility to sell products to children Implications - By advertising features like eco-friendly textiles and minimalist decor, marketers are appealing to adult interests in order to sell children’s products. While some advertising strategies market directly toward children, either through kid-friendly commercials or brightly-patterned goods placed on the lower shelves, advertising for kids’ products is being redirected where the money is: the parents.

Elderly Electronics Gadgets designed for seniors help to bridge the digital generation gap Implications - With digital products becoming omnipresent in our society, no one wants to be left behind—especially the elderly. It’s no surprise, then, that an increasing number of elderly consumers are embracing gadgets and electronics, from phones to alarms, that make day-to-day activities more convenient. As the population ages, there will be an increased need for easy-to-use devices and gadgets designed with the senior in mind.

Tangible Personalization (UPDATE) Customization adds a deeper feeling of ownership Implications - The personalization of goods offers a superlative novelty factor as it adds profound relevance to individual consumers. Adding a custom touch, particularly with products that have become popular or widely used, can make items more covetable than those offered by the competition by offering a feeling of augmented ownership.

Embraced Aging Boomers rewind our disposable culture by embracing elderly icons Implications - As the boomers grow older, they are taking their pop culture icons along with them. Consumers want to see a bit of themselves in the personalities presented to them by the media. In short, 60 today is not the same as 60 a generation ago, and pop-culture is now intrigued by age.

Laissez-Faire Learning Embracing energetic youth, brands take a laissez-faire approach to learning Implications - Acknowledging the playful nature of children by speaking to their sense of humor, brands are adopting new ways to garner the attention of youths and satisfy parental desire for a form of stimulation that’s multi-faceted and immersive. This playful marriage of fun and function through product further enhances socialization early on, which engrosses a child’s cognitive abilities to desire constant stimulation. Reinterpreting societal norms, this attention to immersive, interactive playtime is not only switching up the way children learn, but also how adults respond to development in the digital age.
