There is a major trend in the fashion industry encouraging consumers to feel closer to brands and their products. A combination of social media influencers sporting coveted unreleased pieces and lackluster retail sales have prompted many fashion houses to rethink how they unveil and sell their collections.
I think of myself as an old soul and routinely find a yearning for the days of future past (X-men reference). Where you sold, did and acted anyway you wanted to in NYC and no one could tell you anything. Once upon a time you could smoke anywhere indoors, buy a 14k gold cuban link chain off the street, and brown paper bag your beer to the next underground club. You can try any of these feats today but see how fast you get a ticket, or better yet get arrested. My how times have changed!
