In 2016 retro or so-called vintage accessories are becoming more and more popular. It can be MacBook bags, iPhone cases, AppleWatch bands, backpacks or even clothes and shoes. There are many different accessories and clothing items of this kind for people who like a certain style in their life.
These accessories look quite stylish and old as if they had already been worn for a long time. In reality, there are technologies which allow manufacturers to change the leather surface and make it look worn out although the material is new, wear-proof and has a noble colour.
It definitely appears to be a new fashion style. Of course, such products cost a lot of money, so not every brand can afford producing these “luxuries”.
For example, iPhone cases might have darker, slightly shiny edges as though the case had been used for a long time and changed the colour because of the friction with hands.
This is only one of many examples and generally, that’s the whole concept.
We still don’t see this fashion trend everywhere but time will show what will happen in the future. And we’ll be following the market trends in 2017.
