Life as we know it has been forever altered by COVID-19. Many pre-existing consumer trends were accelerated by lockdown, while others emerged as a complete shock to society. This new reality, and corresponding lifestyle, is not only defined by the apparel choices we make but how we choose to live (and die).

The home is quickly becoming our shelter from the outside world: an office, an entertainment hub, and a place for culinary creations. Even prior to the pandemic, the home goods market was growing, with global sales rising 3.4% last year to $682 billion, according to Euromonitor International. Now, with millions of Americans forced into lockdown, brands have new opportunities to capitalize on the homeware space through brand extensions or limited-edition collaborations. The new dynamic and new routines we’ve established over the past 10 months will forever shape the homes we keep. Modular design, outdoor decor, and cookware are emerging as areas of interest, while candles remain an in-demand entry point. This forced time at home may be giving the home goods market a boost, but it’s also leaving many isolated and alone in single-person households. Even before COVID-19, with marriage rates in decline and more people living alone, single-person households were predicted to be the fastest-growing consumer segment over the next 15 years. …

The Pantone Color Institute has named not one but two colors of the year: PANTONE 17–5104 Ultimate Gray and PANTONE 13–0647 Illuminating. According to Pantone, the selection is “a marriage of color conveying a message of strength and hopefulness that is both enduring and uplifting. Each of them has their own emotional aspect, the gray being the one that’s more supportive and solid, the practical foundation that we need, and the yellow is about hopefulness and sunshine and good cheer.” We examine how Ultimate Gray and Illuminating will be embraced in the fashion industry and beyond.

When Alessandro Michele announced in May that Gucci would go seasonless, not only doing away with the traditional fashion calendar but also eliminating the distinction between menswear and womenswear, he sparked an industry-wide conversation. He also gave us permission to question outdated practices that, until now, have remained in place for no other reason than a lack of incentive to change them. A pivot from the traditional calendar seemed to be a welcome change and Michele wasn’t the first to suggest it. Just weeks before Michele’s announcement came an open letter from Dries Van Noten, and other designers and executives, to the rest of the fashion industry expressing concerns about its excessive pace, output, and waste, and encouraging a fundamental shift to the calendar. …
