There is a continuing trend to beautify clothes with a focus on elaborate detail in design as … “The flirtation with opulence and decadence from last season continues.”
Other cultures continue to inspire us: exploring our Arab neighbors’ opulent and exquisite detailing, we transfer inspiration from decadent interiors and architecture to adorn our bodies. Sensual, seductive Arabian nights; the exotic and the ordinary merge together to create a veiled and hidden design ethic that speaks to the sensual side of the self.
An exciting combination of the past and future is shown in luxurious and laboriously made heritage fabrics with exquisite crystal borders and embroidered detailing. A wildness is in the outlook, with glamour being redefined into a free and easy style, increasingly linked to the self.
We desire to lose ourselves in spectacular, swaying silhouettes of crystal-adorned cloth to celebrate the simple beauty of being alive, of belonging.
Oriental graphics and architecture inspire the elaborate shape and design of over-the-top jewelry.
The circle symbolizes cycles, new beginnings, and continuity – overtaking the triangle shape that stood for growth and stability.
The continued rise of the tattoo – denoting belonging to a tribe – has crossed into fashion design with the recreation of intricate patterns on clothing.
Accessories have turned to a focus on feet as we envisage the return of the heavily bejeweled sandal or intricate anklets as art forms.

The lines between jewelry and accessories continue to become increasingly blurred, particularly in the head-wear segment.
Harking back to the glamour and opulence of a mystical past, exquisite craftsmanship and intricate detailing in New Segments speak for a renewed interest in the ancient Orient.

Yes! Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but if you can’t afford it you can always fake your way through it! I think swarovski are a great alternative to add glam to any outfit or accessories. Although I would really love to get my hands on some Alexis Bittar Jewelry.
