Trend Report / Fall 2015

Gold & Black

The metallic trend shows no sign of slowing, and any color presented with a reflective glint is dazzling consumers and definitely trending up — with no sign of slowing down. However, when that most beloved precious metal, gold, is coupled with ultra-classic, ultra-simple black, the results are completely spellbinding. It’s no surprise that the market is rife with examples of this enticing pairing, all of them ready to merchandise together with fabulous effect. Offer designs across categories, from candles to cards to clocks, and watch customers pick and purchase a favorite or two. —Sarah Schwartz, Trends Editor
