After already sharing a link concerning the matter on Facebook two days ago, I did a little more reading up and of course went to the official-press release, which can be found here: IBM Social Sentiment Index Predicts New Retail

A brief excerpt:

ARMONK, N.Y. – 14 Jan 2013: National Retail Federation Convention – Based on an analysis of more than a half million public posts on message boards, blogs, social media sites and news sources, IBM (NYSE:IBM) predicts that ‘steampunk,’ a sub-genre inspired by the clothing, technology and social mores of Victorian society, will be a major trend to bubble up, and take hold, of the retail industry. Major fashion labels, accessories providers and jewelry makers are expected to integrate a steampunk aesthetic into their designs in the coming year.

And the link to a gallery the good people at IBM provided:

Well, let’s see how accurate the prediction is. We will be watching.
