The Trends for 2023+ 

2023+ is a re-year. It is a year of a re-invention, a year that represents the  new  normal. We re-focus  on the  re-flourishing of our planet, with a sense of individual responsibility. It will be a very physical  and  very  digital world. These worlds will  join and  co-exist. In 2023+ our big  challenge is to  make sure that our new normal is a better new normal. We cannot linger in the past anymore. We do not want that. 

 2023+ promises re-newal –  joyful, confident and bold. 


COCOONING – “We cocoon ourselves consciously to find warmth and intimacy, to charge our batteries for a new normal. Here is our place to nourish our hopes and nurture ourselves, before we emerge.”

PASSAGES:  “Our roots and traditions cannot hold us back. We are heading toward a new normal. Discover a new adventure. Like our ancestors, we set out into the unknown, to brave the elements.” 

RE-GENESIS:  “The surge of a new normal, where we are who we really are and want to be. Re-Genesis is the  new normal from our most rooted and traditional values to a new, sincere and profoundly personal normal.” 


KidultZ – “We will create a new normal, a huge mission. But let us do this playfully and with joy! The surge of a new normal, where we are, who we really are, and want to be.”
