Glamour Trend ~ The Darkness of Desire

Discovering new inspiration in the fantastical and the mystical is the focal point for this glamorous Fall 2014 trend  entitled ‘The Darkness of Desire’.  This captivating trend focuses on intuition and mysticism – that richly imagined repository of our deepest emotions, a dark realm of superstition, spells, shadowy secrets and unspoken passions.

Purple flower color inspiration

This theme hinges on our ability to dream, to imagine, to look beyond the illusions of life. Dark passions and desires are as much a part of the everyday as our desires for happiness, peace and well-being.

The theme encompasses the importance of moving away from the robotic society that surrounds us, distancing ourselves from formulaic models, and delving into the creative ether surrounding the design world.

Mystery, intuition and magic are all evoked in this theme.

Our fascination with light evolves into a fascination with darkness –

the depth of shadows and shadowy secrets.

“This is where old-fashion beauty and savoir-faire meet contemporary creativity”

(A+A Design FW 2015-16).

Swarovski Crystal Jewelry Inspiration Pearl and Purple Necklace

Jewelry emulates mysterious, naturally grown forms with tiny intricacies and small oddities.

Crystals sit alongside antique beads, pearls, and patina surfaces to add a touch of glamorous sparkle and tangled metal forms. Decadence and embellishments return – taking us away from the minimalism of the past few seasons, heralding a strong return to opulent ornamentation.

There is almost a regal opulence to designs, representing a somewhat faded nobility for the modern day. Eclectic shapes and precious materials appear to contain a secret story.

Minimalism is abandoned entirely within this jewelry trend and blends both history and emotion. Tarnished finishes recall dark desires and focus on the past – a key trend driver for major design directions.

Pendants and beads combine to create an individualistic style statement. Nostalgia and a focus on heritage are conveyed within the beautiful finish of the stunning crystal patina.

Glamour Color Inspiration

Deep and mysterious colors and coatings such as Jet, Jet Hematite, Crystal Silver Night and Black Patina pair well with the deeper brown tones such as Jet Nut, Dorado 2X, Smoked Topaz and Crystal Bronze Shade. Lighter coatings such as Crystal Silver Shade and Crystal Golden Shadow  transition into light and dark purple tones. The Light Amethyst and Smokey Mauve pairs well with Crystal Antique Pink, and Crystal Paradise Shine who’s multicolored effect brings out tones that compliment Tanzanite, Crystal Lilac Shadow, Amethyst and Blackberry Pearl and Crystal Iridescent Purple Pearl.

Romantic Trend ~ The Seduction of Touch

Simple things that bring us luxury and joy are conveyed in this theme.

“Dreams of a luxurious everyday in which a measure of leisure and comfort is seen as a way to express one’s freedom of thought as well as artistic and creative inclinations” (Peclers AW15-16)

Swarovski crystal fall winter 2015-16 trends the seduction of touch

We seek a sense of safety and security as the digital world continues to overwhelm us.

Longing for human touch as an antidote to the remoteness of digital communication, we snuggle up in over-sized layers that provide luxurious reassurance. Faux furs, plush piles and soft knits are delicately embellished with small crystals. A strong focus on the zip becoming the fashion fastener of choice as the sportswear trend continues to gain momentum for both tailoring and casual wear. (please contact us for Swarovski Crystal zipper information).

Romantic Colors Inspiration

The Swarovski Romantic Color Inspiration seduces the senses by inviting you to play with luxurious combinations that move from saturated, more hardy tones found in nature to softer and more playful ethereal hues.

Orange tones such as Tangerine and Topaz begin on the left and blend well with all of the natural tones such as Crystal Copper, Crystal Chili PepperCrystal Bronze Shade, Smoked Topaz, Light Smoked Topaz, Bronze Pearl, and Crystal Golden Shadow transition nicely with Vintage Rose into Light Rose and Rose. The new Smoky Mauve color is soft purple tone with hints of a crystal-light grey mixture, making it an ideal hue to progress into clear Crystal or Crystal Silver Shade, Black Diamond, Grey Pearls and Crystal Silver Night.

Vibrant Tangerine introduces a strong focal point, offering warmth and radiance to a reduced color palette underpinned by the subtle refinement of Smokey Mauve. The contrasting effects of matt and shine are married together. Crystals in smaller sizes offer delicate appeal for an instant ‘touch me’ effect.

Jewelry is smooth, sensuous and soft-edged, with crystals set closely together to form a fluid entity.

This gorgeous Swarovski Crystal beaded necklace incorporates a stunning blend of vibrant colors that work very well together, such as Rose, Fuchsia, Fireopal, Colorado Topaz, Amethyst, Chili Pepper AB and  Crystal Volcano. Similar energetic color combinations include Crystal Astral Pink with Tangerine, which is quite exceptional and try incorporating Crystal Copper with these hues because it adds a beautiful transition between the orange family tones and the natural darker or lighter brown hues such as Smoked Topaz, Colorado Topaz, Light Colorado Topaz and Crystal Golden Shadow.

Gifts can include anything of religious significance and are usually presented to the child on the day of the Christening. Whether from the child’s Godparents, Grandparents, or parents, many people choose a keepsake gift that can be with them forever. Jewelry makes for a good keepsake gift because it is made of precious metals (the child is precious), can be personalized with initials, name, or monogram, and bracelets can be adjusted in size as the child grows. Rings may also be re-sized by a local jeweler or added to a silver or gold chain as a keepsake necklace. Gold earrings also make a great Baptism gift as they can be worn into adulthood, as long as they are a simple and classic design.
