Sample Leather Pro Trends

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

Intimate Partying Bars and nightclubs get smaller and cozier to offer a more personal experience Implications - Many nightlife venues are downsizing and simplifying in an effort to offer guests a more intimate experience. Looking to nightlife as a form of escape, consumers appreciate the crowd control and opportunity for connection. Smaller venues also lend themselves to offer more personal performances by musicians and DJs.

Culture Coalescence Pop culture is used as a platform to examine cross-cultural relationships Implications - China's growing global influence has prompted an examination of the country's relationship with North America, a relationship which is being playfully explored within the context of pop culture. Artists and designers hailing from China and beyond are incorporating a Chinese aesthetic into traditionally American products, illustrating the tradition of borrowing and re-interpreting cultural elements, as well as recognizing China's influence in a more authentic way.

Prehistoric Aesthetic Brands adopt designs reminiscent of dinosaurs to satiate primordial interest Implications - No longer just of interest to those who study paleontology, references to dinosaurs and archaic animals are emerging within mainstream culture to satiate obscure interests. Integrating prehistoric references into fashion labels and even interior decor, brands are using primordial designs to not only add a sense of novelty, but also to showcase an element of fearlessness and strength often associated with animals that roamed the earth thousands of years ago.

Exotic Minimalism Consumers incorporate a streamlined touch of exoticism in their wardrobe Implications - At one time, using the word "exotic" in a fashion context conjured images of outrageous prints, sensational colors and a generally over-the-top aesthetic. Now, consumers who are committed to a minimalist approach to fashion are searching for ways to add an exotic flair to their wardrobe without compromising their existing sense of style. Adding small doses of busy patterns to streamlined garments and accessories reveals that consumers are continually adapting ephemeral fashion trends to suit their own long-term aesthetic preferences.

Minimalist Tech Consumers search for fashionable tech products that are optimized for use Implications - Wearable tech has typically been designed in accordance to consumer's aesthetic preferences; now, the fashion industry is following suit, designing high-tech accessories in accordance to consumer's preferences. Emerging accessories that double as tech products feature a minimalist look, indicating not only a demand for dual-function products that cross industries, but a more streamlined approach to technology integration in general.

Sophisticating Baby Infant aesthetics go from cartoonish to chic Implications - Minimalist baby design speaks to a happy medium between the popular fad-based, Internet-heavy infant aesthetic, and the classic cartoonish, childlike look of animal-inspired, pastel-hued pieces. This more sophisticated look accommodates the need for something modern and age appropriate, yet still fitting to an adult aesthetic.

Artisan Infant Handmade clothing for infants adds a more trustworthy feel Implications - Naturalism and safety take precedent when parents choose clothing for babies, creating a need for artisan infant apparel. Handmade clothing communicates a feel of extra care that suits parents well. This speaks to the values of modern parents, who would rather steer clear of mass manufacturing.
