What does fashion’s top trend-spotter think we’ll be wearing in the 2020s?
When Lidewij – or Li – Edelkoort started her career as a trend forecaster 45 years ago, people thought her job was “witchcraft”, she says. “Men would be giggling at the end of the room. But I have gained respect,” she says, “because I have been right so many times.”
The Dutch 69-year-old is fashion’s best-known soothsayer, a woman who has spent more than four decades helping brands, including Prada, Zara and Coca-Cola, to anticipate customer desire.
She is also the dean of hybrid design studies for the prestigious New York fashion college Parsons School of Design, a curator (one recent exhibition was an installation in Tokyo in which Google devices were placed among artisanal homeware), and a regular on “most influential people” lists in fashion and design.
A prophet for our times … Lidewij Edelkoort. Photograph: Ivy Yin
When we meet, she is swathed in loose, dark layers of Eskandar and Issey Miyake, and has just delivered a lecture to a rapt audience of 100 fashion and retail buyers in London.
With striking hair (a dark bob with Lily Munster streaks) and thick black spectacles, she speaks slowly, in very long sentences: interviewing her can feel consulting a very niche psychic.
She is given to issuing prophecies such as: “I think we will get very inspired by blouses.”
But while it is fun to imagine her as the Nostradamus of fast-moving consumer goods, her methods are relatively down to earth. Through research, interviews and travel, she picks up ideas that are “circling around”, then uses her “intuition” (“data is no use; it’s too late,” she says wearily) to predict which of them will take off.
“I can work 25 years ahead,” she says. In 2000, she tells me, she predicted that by 2025 there would be a “fusion of everything contrasting”. “Work and leisure, man and woman, very intense sport, but also laziness and meditation. I can therefore see that it is becoming [true] 100%.”
She has never made a bad call, she says, not least because her predictions “are not my invention”. “I’m just picking it up and broadcasting it. It is not a creative profession. It is more analytic.
” What she will admit to is occasionally miscalculating the “volume” of a trend. After seeing leggings on New York City messengers at the end of the 80s, for example, “I thought, that’s cool – it will be a trend.
Little did I know it would become a billion-dollar business.”
For at least 10 years, she says, trends have slowed down, becoming “vast currents which are mobilised over time”. This makes me feel a bit basic, when I then ask for assurances about whether the midi skirt I’m wearing will still be fashionable in 2025. “That idea left us somewhere in the 80s,” she says drily. “Everyone can have the length they desire.”
When I made the manifesto I could have lost all my clients. But the timing was right. People sent me messages saying: ‘This is what we all think’
Edelkoort has, in fact, gone further than this. In 2015, she predicted the death of the fashion industry as we know it, slamming it as “a ridiculous and pathetic parody” in a treatise titled the Anti_Fashion Manifesto.
Last year, she wrote a similarly damning appraisal of the Met Gala, calling the red carpet a “mesmerising and sickening” display, which came on “the same day the UN published a scientific survey that certified that because of human greed, excess, waste and abuse of our habitat we will lose one million species”.
She was so angry when she wrote that, she said, that “I didn’t even recognise myself,” yet these moments of truth-telling made her more popular. “When I made the manifesto, I could have lost all my clients – I took a risk. But the timing was right.
People sent me messages saying: ‘This is what we all think!’” Anyway, Edelkoort says, you only have to look at the closures of blue-chip brands such as Barneys to see that people are sick of fashion as usual. “It is no longer attractive for people to encounter the same old thing on every street corner.
The consumer doesn’t see the point any more,” she says. “Wake up, people!”
After our interview, she presents a second lecture, the latest of her big predictions, titled The Future of Luxury.
She argues that in the next decade – as people tire of overconsumption – our lives will shift radically.
She urges the assembled fashion professionals to “make much less, make it better and make it more expensive”. She says that success will not be expressed in dollars but “in degrees of happiness”.
“People are an endangered species and if you’re not part of the big change you’re not relevant,” she tells me afterwards. Many brands, she argues, will close if they don’t change. “It’s very hard to turn these big boats around,” she says. “It’s much easier to start a new company now than scale down.”
Despite Boris Johnson’s recent election – and regardless of the presence of a climate-change denier in the Oval Office – she believes young people will continue to fight for a better future, and will get one.
“Crazily enough, elections everywhere in the world go against it,” she says, but she believes the hunger for a greener, fairer, less consumerist society is growing and that eventually there will be a tipping point.
“In Germany and parts of China, there is an increasing understanding that ecology equals economy. The day we are able to prove this, I think we will create change.” Witchcraft or otherwise, here’s hoping she is right.
Life in the 2020s according to Lidewij Edelkoort
Libraries will “start lending clothes, offering lectures and writing courses, hosting exhibitions and concerts”, says Edelkoort.
She believes they will become “the epicentres of small towns and villages”, partly run by community volunteers in return for access. In Tokyo, she says, there are already “beautiful” libraries where people work and dine together.
She believes this will be one of many “societal initiatives bringing us back together”, in response to today’s “dangerous” state of disconnection.

Our eye for colour will change as natural dyes – such as those made from onions and avocados – become mainstream. Their colours are less saturated, “more subdued and melancholic”. Similarly, more sustainable fabrics, such as those made from nettle and algae, will become popular.
Edelkoort believes “proven, functional” workwear shapes will be popular in the 2020s. “We will retreat, after all this newness, possibly into something more sensible and pragmatic,” she says.

There will still be “a need for romantic dresses – slightly high-waisted; a need for volume.” Edelkoort cites the Irish designer Simone Rocha as someone who is “now getting major acclaim”. That silhouette is, she says, “beguiling” and encourages “a more dancing step”.
In the next decade, we will fly a tenth as much as we do today, says Edelkoort. In Scandinavian countries, she says, wealthy people are already selling their houses abroad rather than face their friends’ disapproval at their regular flying. Recently, KLM advised customers to fly less.
Train travel, she believes, will take off instead. She argues that this will happen because “the big innovative companies, Google, Tesla and Apple” will invest in green technology, while some companies will rethink their business plans in a radical way.
KLM and British Airways, for example, “would be smart” to invest in the rail sector to make up for the shortfall in domestic flights.
An age of collaboration
In fashion and design, “there will be co-creation. One of my visions of the future is that it will be the age of the amateur; people will be empowered to be more creative.”
The end of ‘stuffocation’
Down with stuff … Tidying Up With Marie Kondo. Photograph: Netflix
Edelkoort cites the popularity of shows on Netflix about decluttering as a sign that citizens will soon buy into the “revelation” that having less stuff will make us happier.
She believes that people will grow to cherish their selected possessions so deeply that we will eventually see the rise of animism, where objects are respected, treated “ pets”.
“This is a bit further in time,” she says, “but it will definitely happen.”

15 Styles You Can Create With Extreme Hold Gel at Home
If you struggle with having your hair fall your carefully coiffed hairstyle, it may be time to switch up your products.
Sure, we’re pomade fans as much as most dudes, but when holding hairstyles are the key, you can’t go wrong with extreme hold gel — it’s in the name! We’re confident you can use hair gel to create just about any go-to hairstyle in your arsenal.
It’s all down to using the right amount of product and allowing it to dry undisturbed. Read on to learn how to create 15 different hairstyles, all using extreme hold gel.
How to Use Extreme Hold Gel
Not just for ’80s parties. Photo credit: Dvora
1. ’80s-Style Slick Back
Obviously, you can create a slicked-back style with gel. It’s the best way to get the look with hold that can last you from morning to night. We to use the Bed Head for Men by TIGI Power Play Gel for its strong hold and shiny finish. Just apply the gel (liberally!) to your hair and comb backward. Done and done! This style pairs well with undercuts for a modern effect.
Easy to wear mohawks.
2. Casual Mohawk
We do love a good modern mohawk. Instead of a punky sharp and straight-up look, the casual mohawk is more rounded and less intense looking. You’ll get the majority of this style by rounding out your hair with a blow dryer. Then, take your high hold gel — applying just a bit to the tips of your fingers — and run your fingers through your hair, working upwards to set the style.
Wear a spiked-up look this year.
3. Modern Spiked Up Hair
Spiked up hair will always be a thing. We’re not mad about it, but we do think that spiked hair for men needs to get a little update over the years. The 2017 version is less stiff and less spiked, in general. You can use gel to set specific pieces together and at the roots to set them upright.
Who wouldn’t want to try this fun style? Photo credit: indigitalimages.com
4. Wild Quiff
For a fun and funky look, use your hair gel to get this over-the-top quiff. It’s easy enough to do but will use quite a bit of gel. You’ll basically need to apply a hefty amount of gel all over your hair from root to tip. Then, you can comb upwards and downwards to set your hair in this sculptural look.
Try a new take on waves. Photo credit: indigitalimages.com
5. Stylized Waves
Fingerwaves work for men, too! And if you’ve got short hair, it’s super easy to do. You’ll simply take your gel and apply to the top of your hair. Then, take a fine-tooth comb and comb in the wavy design. You can hold the curves in place with a finger when you go to the next one so you don’t lose the pattern.
Comb overs are actually really cool.
6. Cool Comb Over
We to use extreme hold gel on chill hairstyles, too. We particularly this one for guys with thick hair who need that extra bit of hold. Use the gel to push your roots one way and the rest of your hair smoothed the opposite direction. This will give you the voluminous look without needing to style too much with a blow dryer.
A style that can only be held up by extreme gel. Photo credit: indigitalimages.com
7. Punk Mohawk
Punk hunk? Of course you can use gel to make an intense mohawk! We the Dove Men+Care Control Gel to create bold mohawk looks. Apply the gel to your hair, pulling upwards to hold this ’90s grungy style into place.
Yep! Gel works on facial hair, too.
8. Stylized Mustache
There is no reason you can’t use hair gel to style a mustache, too. Usually, waxes are used to style facial hair, but they can be particularly hard to wash out. Gel, on the other hand, is far easier to wash out. Just switch out a dab of wax for gel and style all the same.
Try a wet hair look for a fashion-forward trend.
9. Wet Look Hair
Wet-looking hair is super cool this year. You can get this look on your natural hair texture without having to do a whole lot. Simply apply gel to your hair as you normally wear it. The more gel you use, the shinier and wetter it will look.
Pompadours are one of our favorite styles.
10. Slick Pompadour
You can’t go wrong with a slick ’50s-style pomp! And, for those with hair that just doesn’t want to hold in this style, extreme hold gel can get you there. Just follow this tutorial for a work-day pomp, switching out the wax for the shiny, high-hold benefits of gel.
Defined curls are a must.
11. Defined Curls
For curly haired dudes, you basically need to use a gel to get healthy-looking defined curls. Creating defined curls for men may be a bit more work than you are used to, but it is so worth it, trust us. Using a higher hold gel will help for difficult-to-style hair.
Wear that casual quiff all week.
12. Chilled-Out Quiff
Did you know that matte gel is a thing? Yeah, you can get the hold of gel with the matte look of other products. To get this casual quiff, just rake a little Axe Messy Look: Matte Gel through your hair at a backward angle. Use whatever gel is left on your hands to smooth down the sides of your hair.
Try a slicked-back man bun instead.
13. Slicked-Back Man Bun
Slick man buns are definitely a thing. You just need to be very careful where you apply the gel. You’ll want to apply gel to the roots of your hair but only up to the point that the bun will start. Smooth your hair backward, then the ends of your hair should be gel-free so you can wrap it into a man bun.
A new take on the undercut.
14. Voluminous Pomp and Undercut
How cool is this high contrast look? We’re big fans of the look of a short, shaved undercut and longer pomp on top. You can style this with the Axe Spiked-Up Look: Extreme Hold Gel so you can get the hold you need. Extreme hold gel, in this case, helps to hold volume to half-shaved hair.
A new quiff.
15. Tousled Comb Over
For our casual-loving friends, we this tousled look. This look is really easy to create if you have a wavy or curly hair type. You just need to apply some gel to your fingers to set your hair in the style. Then, you can define specific pieces of hair to ensure the messy, tousled look.
25 Must-Have Hair Products for Men
Whether you’re a gent with bouncy curls, loose waves or straight hair, one thing is for certain; hair is the genetic accessory that every man prizes.
For some men, their hair grooming routine is virtually non-existent and for others, it’s a daily ritual.
No matter how much (or how little) attention you pay to your hair, we’ve compiled ten of the best hair products for men that will help you achieve attention-grabbing locks every day.
1. Redken for Men Outplay Texture Putty
Redken has created a superior formula for the Texture Putty Outplay that ensures your locks are always ‘crunch-free’, but still held firmly in place.
A matte finish allows you to build the product up without it looking clumpy. It’s also incredibly versatile; simply work into damp or dry hair for varied results.
Redken insists that this product commands attention with its thick separation of your hair and its additional visually thickening properties.
2. American Crew Pomade
For a product that will keep your locks in lock all day, the American Crew Pomade does the job perfectly. Most appropriate for curly hair, this product has a medium hold and leaves a glossy, sophisticated finish.
It is a water-based formula that is versatile for different occasions; it’s all about how much product you work in. Apply the product with your fingertips and experiment with what suits your face shape most appropriately.
Run a comb through your hair for a retro-themed ‘do.
3. Jack Black Hair Gel
While most pomades and mousses tend to be thicker formulas, the Jack Black hair gel is lightweight with a secure hold and conditioning properties. Ingredients include basil lead, organic kelp and ginger root for a unique formula.
This product also dries instantly on the hair, and won’t look too severe on your locks, making it a great option for the low-key gent. It is also dermatologist-tested, cruelty-free and free of fragrance, parabens, and colorants.
4. Shu Uemura Art of Hair Master Wax
The great thing about the Shu Uemura Art of Hair Master Wax is that it is the ultimate styling product for versatility.
It controls, smoothens and nourishes tough, frizzy and unruly hair, leaving a lasting hold with a lightweight finish.
Japanese tree extract and antioxidant properties make for a non-sticky formula that is shiny and glossy once applied to your mane. Apply to damp hair for a more natural-looking, relaxed aesthetic.
