"Wellness and health" has become a big trend in design. How so? Take fashion as an example!

Not sure if you've noticed that Gucci has collaborated with Adidas? But there is no surprise since we've seen Louis Vuitton had a crossover line with Supreme few years ago.

"Multidisciplinary approach" is probably an effective way for brands to innovate their products and surprise us. "Gucci X Oura ring"- the first designer smart ring has been released recently. It's just anything in style comes with a pricey tag: 950 USD, which is triple times of the normal Oura smart ring. This collaborated item comes equipped with the generation 3 technology and advanced sensor to measure body metrics such as sleep, activities, readiness, heart rate and temperature.

This collaboration indicates that brands started getting involved in clients' lives more proactively; they imagined and sensed the desire of lifestyles before their audiences realised- fashionistas definitely craves for wearable devices in style, beyond that, Gucci's partnership with The Real Real also stands for the rising trend of resale when considering the uniqueness, the value for money and the higher level- responsibility of the society. Sustainable living could probably explain the goal of those business movements which just meet Gucci's mother company- the Kering's value as well.
