Welcome to the May Edition of our Trend Letter!
Padlocks are the latest accessory trend. Designers such as Tom Ford, Louis Vuitton, Michael Kors, and Hermes have all thrown away the key!
We are not totally sure how to translate this trend. Padlocks reference chastity, safety, and security. Putting them on shoes and jewelry reference chastity and handbags reference security, but you definitely don’t want to lose those keys!
Padlocks are showing up all over the place and have become a nuisance in major cities such as Paris with the “Love Locks“.

Large Padlock as Artwork with an unknown photo source and Bike rack in downtown Nashville photo by Adam Fagen. We love the idea of a lock used to lock your bike.
Lastly, Love Locks! Put your lock on a bridge in Paris, then throw the key into river. Love Locks are popping up all over major cities! We are going to travel to Paris and put a lock on the railing for our undying love of Design!
