A host of outlandish trends promise to make the next 12 months anything but dull – from pizza vending machines and stick-on make-up to voice-based dating and potato milk.
Lavinia Fasano of foresight consultancy The Future Laboratory has the inside track on what we will be eating, drinking and wearing in 2022.
She says: “Trends demonstrate our underlying desires as consumers.
"Throughout the pandemic, many trends emerged that were about trying something new, testing our senses or having an adventure.
“After a year of isolation and under-stimulation, people are seeking new social rituals to add excitement to their lives.
“Often, the trends that really take off are the ones that are easy to replicate and achieve.”
Lavinia reveals what awaits us in the year ahead.
