Trend Report / Spring 2014

Masterpiece Inspired

The popular period television drama, Downton Abbey, has introduced World War I styling to international audiences and inspired numerous licensing deals in the gift industry. Based on items that might have been found in the Yorkshire country estate, licensed merchandise debuted at the winter gift shows. Like the story itself, the product themes weave in and out of two layers of British society—the masters and the servants.
