Immersive Cinema Movie experiences are heightened with expansive tech features Implications - As at-home streaming services threaten to dismantle the film industry, theaters are elevating traditional cinematic experiences with high-tech enhancements for experiential allure. Moving even beyond innovations such as 3D screenings, cinemas are integrating everything from motion seating to multi-level screens, ultimately reinventing the movie experience into an immersive and interactive activity, rather than one suited for at-home relaxation.

Couture Utility Upscale brands favor practical elements over primarily aesthetic features Implications - High end fashion brands are exhibiting a preference for utilitarian features that are taking precedence over primarily aesthetic elements. A keen focus on practicality among contemporary designers is, on a grander scale, indicative of consumer preferences steeped in sensibility. This is well aligned with the millennial consumer, who tends to be more thoughtful and selective when it comes to big ticket purchases.

Footwear Androgyny Brands hone in on gender bending shoe lines for the modern consumer Implications - Brands are honing in on androgynous footwear lines that deliver gender-neutral designs. These creative concepts are meeting the wants and needs of modern shoppers who are no longer restricted to strict male and female divisions, but are instead blurring distinctions, reflective of an evolving view on gender.

Liberated Footwear High-performance footwear takes an unrestricted approach to its design Implications - Designers of high-performance sports footwear have begun taking a simplistic, pared down approach to the design of such products. Whether it's by ensuring shoes are easily adjustable, or simply designing them with greater flexibility in mind, high-performance outdoor footwear is often made to mimic being barefoot, signalling a consumer preference for both natural design and feel.
