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

Generational Footwear Instead of fit or function, brands use time periods as inspiration Implications - Although the cyclical nature of fashion is nothing new, brands are using the quintessential aesthetics of specific generations -- past or future -- in design for aesthetic appeal. This approach to design targets consumers more concerned with aesthetics rather than functionality.

Juvenile Couture Children's footwear is given a luxe overhaul for fashion-conscious parents Implications - Looking to convey prestige through their children, parents are investing in higher end footwear for kids. While the traditional thought regarding children's wear is to be frugal because of limited time usage, the premiumization of kid's footwear signifies a desire for disposable luxury.

Experiential Projection Seeking to engage consumers, brands project 3D simulations for appeal Implications - Adding experiential allure to ordinary product unveilings and marketing approaches, brands are turning to 3D projections and visual simulations to engage consumer senses. Allowing consumers to feel as if they're apart of the brand experience, these projection tools allow representatives to convey their message in a more visual and immersive manner. This suggests a shift in consumer involvement away from mere spectator.
