SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS Trend Inspiration Urban Nomad
The continuing emergence of nomad-inspired fashion showcases a new drive for freedom, and a stand against the constraints of the ongoing recession. Wanderlust continues to engulf the design world as we become more mobile in our daily lives due to the increased use and functionality of social media. We no longer have to work in an office, or one place, and our clothes and accessories reflect this. This mixing of styles, seasons, and eras to create a new bohemian look with a practical element is inspiring a new generation. Combining materials, such as tweed with luxurious fibers, creates a truly individualistic style.
The exclusive and the eccentric will become ever more important and will be carried by the growing influence of the bespoke. Recycling and regeneration are predicted to be the future fabrics and will become an increasing focus. “We are consuming 50 percent more than what the planet can currently sustain. This is very unfortunate and could increase to 100 percent very soon…” Sri Lankan physicist and Nobel Peace Prize winner Professor Mohan Munasinghe: “With such large numbers and as populations grow, the pressure to source more raw materials for textiles is intensifying.”
The overriding aim of this theme is to create a totally individualistic style statement based on the wearer’s personality and taste.
Fabrics are down to earth: leather and skins, feathers and tweed, crochet and florals, crystal and tartan – strange bedfellows – combine in the one garment.
