Minimalism returns as we near recession
As the economy continues to decline with the current global crisis, consumers and brands are turning towards a more minimal aesthetic. A larger focus on practicality, neutral tones and simple color palettes are expected to become more popular as we near a recession. Francesca Muston, Vice President of Fashion at WGSN told BoF, "In the age of anxiety, consumers are looking to strip back and focus on what is really important — being mindful extends beyond meditation to be mindful about how we spend our time and money." {Business of Fashion}

How Deciem changed the beauty industry
In 2013, Brandon Trauxe launched Deciem, which encompassed multiple brands including The Ordinary, which quickly gained a cult following among consumers who wanted to gain a deeper understanding of skin-care ingredients at a much lower cost.
