Digitization in the retail industry has become increasingly prominent, and retailers are adopting digital tools to streamline operations and improve sales. These tools include online ordering systems, augmented reality for virtual product testing, personalised recommendations, digital payment options, and more. Digitization also enables retailers to leverage data analytics to gain insights into customer behaviour and preferences, which can inform marketing strategies and enhance the customer experience.

Fashion brands are increasingly applying digitization to their marketing activities. One example is apparel brand Casablanca, which is now using AI-generated campaign images for its SS23 collection. (Source)

Many popular brands have embraced the crescent bag as “the hottest handbag shape of 2023”, with the latest bag styles featuring the curved shape. The crescent bag falls somewhere between classic and novelty shapes and is characterized by a unique curved feature that appears on one side, most commonly at the base, often being named after the moon (“moon”, “demi-lune”, or “luna”).

Yuppie-core is the latest fashion style that has emerged, particularly among the fashion-conscious young urban professionals of today. The term “yuppie” was initially coined in the early 1980s to describe young, affluent, and career-oriented individuals who flaunted their wealth through their clothing, cars, and travel. Modern yuppie may wear tasteful button-up shirts with faded jeans, designer trench coats, loafers, and jewellery. The style is understated but polished, and it conveys success and affluence without being showy.
