Is “Punk” the fashion trend ?

An article in the Financial Times (March 3,2013) describes the influence of the announcement of the “Punk” theme for the Metropolitan Museum’s Costume Institute’s exhibition. Jimmy Choo’s handcuff bag with key, Cesare Casadei’s blade heeled shoe, Versace’s “Vunk” featuring heavy metal nails and chains are cited as examples. Will this theme coordination become the coordination across fashion designers that will form future fashion trends? Will such coordination diminish the fashion industry’s appeal if large volume retailers mimic these trends too early? Or will it lower the volume of marked down product and thus improve industry profitability ?
