Trend of the Year 2015 Retail Round-Up

Find out how Modern Seventies has influenced retailers

In December 2014, we announced our Trend of theYear 2015 as Modern Seventies. The Modern Seventies trend direction was predicted to influence fashion, beauty and lifestyle products and campaigns throughout 2015. It offered a clean, contemporary and minimalist take on the 1970’s aesthetic.

Throughout the year our expert analysts have been tracking this trend, from its initial appearance in high-end collections through to mainstream retail. Here on our blog, we can reveal how the trend has successfully translated into mainstream retail through our in-depth merchandising reports.
