Sample Gold Pro Trends

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

Targeted Youth Kids clothing gets the customized treatment with specifically targeted labels Implications - No longer a sub category of mainstream labels, children's fashion is growing in momentum with brands solely targeting that demographic. Highlighting youth culture and a more mature style preference, these brands are recognizing the desire, particularly among parents, to cater youths with more sophisticated and tailored products. The shift toward more customized children's products reflects a desire to provide kids with not just basic necessities, but goods that promote a more cultured lifestyle.

Ideogram Fashion Fashion labels take on expressive digital features through emoticons Implications - Fashion labels are embracing modern displays of emotion through apparel featuring emoticons. This follows up on brands using emojis to communicate with consumers who are replacing verbal expression with digital symbols. This signifies a preference for physical and emotional distance, especially among the younger demographic of digital natives for whom face-to-face interaction comes second to convenience and efficiency.

Cartoon Patriotism Creatives produce illustrated takes on American political figures Implications - Cartoonish depictions of famous figures are blurring the lines between politics and art. Depictions of this kind touch on satirical themes tied to American pride and nationalism. By providing an artistic outlet for these governmental topics, these creations help develop a more expressive political culture.

De-Sophistication More high-end edibles in various industries get more low-brow makeovers Implications - Food and drink choices are considered status items by many, however in today's hyper-public society, anything too ostentatious and opulent can be considered insensitive. As a result, high-end and low-end ideas are converging in the world of cuisine. This makes for an acceptable form of luxury that also opens sophisticated products to a bigger market.

Glamorized Fast Food Fashion designers adopt fast food aesthetics for cultural allure Implications - Recognizing the fandom that exists around fast food and the franchises that produce it, fashion retailers have begun referencing items like pizza and burgers in designs. By doing so, designers are not only creating an aesthetic that consumers can identify with, they're also reflecting on the growing fascination with the hedonistic lifestyle and gluttonous behavior.

Confectionery Collaboration Chocolate and candy brands collaborate to create hybrid sweets Implications - Choosing to embrace fellow competitors, brands, like those in the confectionery industry, are choosing to collaborate with others on new flavors and formats. Seeking to capitalize on the popular fan followings of certain brands, confectionery companies are seeking to not only expand awareness to new markets, but also redefine how typically traditional products are perceived.

Touchless Cosmetic Self care is applied without actual human touch to streamline the process Implications - With consumers focusing on their health, ditching chemicals, and making their own cosmetics, it's not surprise that the puritan approach to self care continues with touchless cosmetic. Omitting hands from the equation entirely, products and gadgets that allow consumers to apply products without contaminating them communicate a feel of freshness.

Whimsical Retail Brands increase interest through over-the-top retail displays Implications - Bringing an exciting element to routine shopping experiences, playfully designed retail displays are being adopted as a way to generate interest and engagement with products. By adopting over-the-top designs more reminiscent of an amusement park than a grocery store, retail locations are able to better compete with the convenience of online shops by offering an experiential element.
