Fashion and interior design - Marble Inspired Trend

Timeless yet modern - marble. It is present in our lives since ancient times - outdoors and in interiors. Now it appears in fashion and dinnerware. A beautifully delicate dinnerware collection inspired by the beauty of pure white Tuscan marble:

Marble, a historically striking material, evokes splendour, grace and a classical aesthetic.
 Marble look now goes into fashion, too:

This trend goes even to footwear - just have a look at  Nike's limited edition Roshe Run ‘Marble’ pack;

NIKE-ROSHE-RUN-QS-MARBLE-PACK-1

How do you like them? I agree with LS:N that this is definitely an example of their Neo Kitsch design direction.
And prefer the real thing which, as you can see in many of my posts, is symbol of elegance, unlike the immitations above. Still, these are just another example of the strong trend about the mutual influnece between fashion and interior design.
