Sample Luxury Fashion Pro Trends

Each Luxury Fashion PRO Trend is on its own slide with implications, a quantified score, and examples linked to online luxury fashion articles, videos and images. Examples:

Haute Hippie Fashion channels a more refined free spirit Implications - The hippie style currently making way in fashion and design trends is an updated version of the 1960s and 1970s wild child. The haute hippie is groovy without the grunge. The revival of bohemian hones in on a more modern and clean spirit than previous decades in order to allow for hippie fashions in any setting--even the workplace.

Polka Dot Poise The traditional print is no longer confined to informal, girlish attire Implications - Polka dots, once reserved for informal, schoolgirl attire on the playground, is getting an haute couture makeover. Designers are incorporating the traditional print into elegant products for menswear, dog clothing, interior design and kitchen accessories. No longer indicative of innocence, polka dots are now more readily used by designers.

Vintage Ethics In a time of crisis, people are rethinking their values Implications - As social norms and ethics change, adapting to new values is critical. While hunting for sport or wearing fur were once deemed glamorous, they became taboo in the last decades. Now, however, buying vintage or fakes has led to a reassessment of values. It's wise to revisit the past if new attitude shifts will accommodate.

Borrowed Luxury High-end rentals allow less affluent consumers temporary indulgences Implications - In 2009, we discovered 'Rental Culture,' in which consumers were renting everything from art to apparel in an effort to save money during the recession. Now, consumers have more discretionary income at their fingertips and are thus going bigger with their rentals. Renting a couture gown or luxury vehicle is less costly than actually purchasing it, which helps to alleviate feelings of buyer's remorse or guilt, and they also allow the less wealthy the chance to reward themselves with some much-deserved indulgence, if only for a day or two.

Aggressive Couture Chains, studs, and leather give our wardrobes a hardened edge Implications - Out with the frilly and romantic; in with the rough and the tough. Biker-inspired fashions were incorporated onto runways and editorials for several seasons, leading to a love affair with chains, studs, biker gloves, and tons of leather. The biker-babe resurgence offers a glimmer of the retro theme, but ultimately points to a harder, more callous vibe in clothing preference.

Haute Athleticism Fitness-focused fashions mirror healthy lifestyle makeovers Implications - Sports and fashion are mingling like never before. Athletic apparel retailers and high fashion designers have begun collaborating en masse. This isn't the only way the two interests are teaming up, as athletics-inspired fashions have been popping up all over RTW runways in 2009.

Haute Techcessories High fashion gadget cases appeal to label-conscious consumers Implications - Although everyone may have the same tablet or phone, tech consumers know that one area they can differentiate themselves is their gadget cases. Because couture fashion consumers love labels and high-end designer products, meeting the need of this market group is as simple as a designer extending his product line to include tech accessories. From Louis Vuitton to Marc Jacobs, fashion houses are joining in on the techcessories craze.

Reviving Constriction Victorian-era corsets show a penchant for self-punishment Implications - Despite living in an era with a wide array of personal freedoms, Victorian-era corsets have made a comeback. They're revered most among emo and punk subcultures, where this self-imposed constriction offers a more realistic alternative to the happy-go-lucky and materialistic mainstream world.

Golden Men Influential fashion designers are introducing a new masculine gold Implications - Gold fashion popped onto the pop culture radar for women back in 2004, but it wasn’t until 2008 that it was notably integrated into menswear. As influential designers like John Galliano for Dior highly impact mainstream trends, expect to see everything from golden shoes to bronze pants for men.

Grunge Glamorization Pricey takes on grunge lets consumers take part without sacrificing quality Implications - The popularity of purposely worn-out fashion is at a high, and to bridge the gap between high-end consumers and the lower-end side of fashion, upscale designers are producing their own takes on this look. This approach allows for consumers to take part in a novel shift without moving too far from their established shopping habits.

Multi-Function Time Time has become secondary for the modern clock Implications - Dual or multi-purpose electronics have gained mass appeal. Watches have become especially popular multi-functional devices as they can be combined with several different gadgets for portable convenience. Technologies that offer alternate functions reduce clutter, save time and often serve as status symbols.

3D Printed Clothing Demand for fast fashion gives rise to printed wares for quick distribution Implications - The fast fashion market has quick turnarounds to saturate the market in the latest wares in mere days, but as the globalization of clothing continues, so does the quest to deliver goods even faster. 3D printing has left few areas of production untouched and is being adopted by the fashion industry as a means to digitally send products as opposed to shipping. As online shopping takes more focus off of physical retailers, garment printing is evolving to be a staple process that could enter consumer homes sooner than anticipated for a 'purchase and print' style of shopping.
