The 2010s were all about lifestyle brands. What next?

Loved this article about trends in consumerism, what “culture” means to us, and how DTC brands have led to a new understanding of community and identity. “In the 2010s, supply chain innovation opened up lifestyle brands.

Willing to participate wholeheartedly.”
