Ties By Arquitectonica

Rem D. Koolhaas isn’t the only architect to take the fashion plunge. Arquitectonica’s Laurinda Spear has just launched her own accessories line, available at Arquitectonica Shop, filled with exuberantly printed scarves and ties.

Discounts, Discovery & Delight: 3Ds for Retail Success

It makes us want more. Therefore, it is in our best interest to create products and experiences which induce the release of dopamine in our consumers. We could use some dopamine for ourselves, too. In our fashion and retail world, there are three primary stimuli, "3Ds," we can control to deliver hits of dopamine: Discounts, Discovery and Delight.
