Rainbows of Light is elated to introduce Swarovski’s new crystal innovations for Fall/Winter 2020/21! The theme for this Swarovski launch is Love ALL, a reflection on the desire to give life more meaning and optimism and to prioritize how we feel over what we have.

The need for emotional connection has deepened our desire for the authentic and the real. This attitude is echoed in Fall/Winter 2020/21’s aptly-named theme, Love All, and summed up in four moods: Then & Now explores the sensuous sophistication of reworked Forties-inspired vintage; Extreme & Casual embraces a new relaxed extravagance; Modern & Romantic unveils the charm of tender elegance;and Wild & Chic unlocks the power of untamed femininity. All for the love of crystal.

THE POWER OF EMOTIONS

New Swarovski Crystal Spring/Summer 2020 Innovations and Inspirations

In this technological day-in age, people around the world are connected to each other more than ever. It appears everything we could possibly desire is at our fingertips and assessible at a moment’s notice. We have the ability to connect with anyone at any time or any place, whenever we choose. We are more willing to share, more informed, more style savvy…aren’t we? Or is all of this just a façade? Research shows us that paradoxically, we do not all feel as united as we think. Psychologists are finding that we are currently going through a worldwide phase called “The Loneliness Epidemic”.

Some alarming statistics are pointing to the real implications of this global feeling of loneliness. 47% of people in the US, feel they are regularly lonely and 43% feel isolated from others. 0.5 million elderly people in the UK do not speak to anyone for at least 5 days in a row. 21% of “empty nest youth” in China feel lonely every day, while 62% feel lonely regularly.

These statistics reveal why creating emotional experiences and the “Emotion Economy” has emerged. There is a real necessity to become more emotionally and physically connected and is an ever-increasing desire among people all over the world.

People crave a real connection with others to feel emotionally balanced, and they are seeking these relationships in unique ways. Some university campuses have opened cuddle and crying rooms to provide a safe place to unite others and feel emotionally supported. Laughter workshops are gaining momentum around the world, and board game cafés are on the rise. In an order to generate more fulfillment and wellbeing, the Indian government has added happiness classes to schools.

It’s no wonder then, why storytelling has become an essential aspect of communication techniques. This is a very powerful method in reaching out to people all over the world and bringing them emotionally together.

How can you connect with your emotions and express your story in a beautiful way? The new Swarovski Crystal Innovations help you to do this in a uniquely brilliant fashion. Be inspired to enter a world full of sparkling radiance, where each piece brings to life a representation of your exceptional self. Feel the way through your creative process and connect with yourself and others in new and enlivening ways.

Reconnect with yourself by allowing your choices of colors and styles to express the way you feel. Celebrate your passions and sentiments captured in pure radiance, where every brilliant piece sends its own crystal-clear message.

Let your emotions shine in the cuts, colors and inspirational magic of Swarovski’s new crystal collection.

The New Swarovski Pearl Color is called Crystal Eden Green

swarovski-crystal-5810-crystal-eden-green-pearl.jpg

The Swarovski Crystal Eden Green Pearl is a vibrant evergreen type of color that stands out with intense shimmering hues. This fun and luxuriant type of verdant green is reminiscent of the 80s, but has received a contemporary update as opulence continues to infiltrate both day and evening-wear. The name Eden means delight, happiness and bliss!

New Swarovski Color Shimmer Effects

Shimmer is a new Swarovski Crystal Effect that was inspired by the famous and extremely popular Aurora Borealis (AB) coating, but is a more delicate sparkle. The difference between the two Effects is that the AB coating refracts intense yellow, pink, and blue sparkles and can sometimes overpower the original color underneath. The Shimmer coating is a softer, less intense yellows and blues than the AB coating, creating a subtle and elegant shimmering appearance, while still allowing the original color to shine through as well.

New Swarovski Crystal DeLight Lacquer Pro Effects

This radiant crystal collection crosses the divide between the extraordinary and the everyday.

swarovski-crystal-delight-lacquer-pro-stones.jpg

High/Low Fashion Movement – What is it?

The High/Low fashion style has been very popular across many age groups due its simple approach – gracefully combine high-fashion, tailored and custom-made pieces with more casual, everyday pieces. The overarching approach is to mingle higher-priced items, such as clothing, jewelry, shoes or accessories, with your less expensive items.

You are essentially blurring the lines between formal and casual. This allows you to flow beautifully between the two, so that you can be assured that you will be dressed just right for every occasion. Think of Goldilocks, you don’t want to be overdressed for any occasion, but not under-dressed either. For instance, you create a beautiful balance and enhance your (lower look) of jeans and a T-shirt, with your higher end Swarovski Crystal jewelry!

New Swarovski Crystal Lacquer Pro Effects

The Swarovski Crystal Electric Lacquer Pro Effects are exuberant tropical colors that expresses a phenomenally vibrant and spellbinding appearance. The Electric Lacquer coating intensifies each energetic shade, catapulting it into a high-voltage glistening, neon-like sparkle that is absolutely brilliant! This exuberantly expressed Swarovski Electric Effect is an industry game-changer, delivering dance costumes, skating outfits, stage performers, and anyone in the spotlight, new and exciting design possibilities that are guaranteed to capture and mesmerize the audience’s attention.

Fashion and Jewelry Trends and Inspirations

The mood for Spring/Summer 2020 is reflected in four new trends: The Serenity of Being evokes a sense of stillness, reflecting the desire to “be in the moment” to offset the effects of isolation and information overload; The Joy of Expression captures Gen Z’s desire for “Instagrammable” disco-glam wardrobe statements; The Surprise of the Unexpected fuses athleisurewear with a new sartorial luxury, blending street looks with classic style; and the “anything goes” attitude of The Excitement of Creativity is seen in the rejection of normcore in favor of creative, exuberant and multilayered designs.

The Serenity of Being

“Elegance is elimination.” – Cristóbal Balenciag

fashion-and-jewelry-the-serenity-of-being.jpg

We all need a calm place, somewhere to escape from it all. The importance placed on the need for serenity, on the necessity of getting away, has never been stronger.

A retreat, a rest, a space to call our own are necessary to offset the detrimental effects of overcrowding and information overload.

It is time to embrace the serenity of simply being.

fashion-and-jewelry-trends-serenity.jpg

Designs will tap into this mindset, with gently expressive elements that embody a sense of stillness. The world has to come to realize that sometimes we get the greatest productivity from just doing nothing and increasingly our designs and consumer choices will reflect this.

Crystal charms are teamed with a simple bangle silhouette in an emotionally connected design, with handcrafted elements in imperfect shapes adding a sense of personalization and authenticity.

fashion-and-jewelry-trends-serenity-designs.jpg

Who said beige was boring? This muted hue makes a determined comeback as designers embrace “non-color” and reduced tones in pastel shades with an almost smoky depth. Softened brown is used as a base to tone down the traditional harshness of black. 

A subdued crystal color palette in repeated, restful rhythms highlights the need for stillness in design.

fashion-and-jewelry-trends-serenity-color-combinations.jpg

Fluid crystal forms evolve in a refined architectural direction, adding a sense of personalization and authenticity to designs.

fashion-and-jewelry-trends-serenity-crystal-colors.jpg

Indulgent, tactile designs in radiant crystal create emotional connection through tactile sensation with a continuing focus on creativity remaining key.

The Joy of Expression

“People will stare. Make it worth their while.” – Harry Winston

Finding our nirvana has never been easier. With younger consumers clamoring for a style outlet, designs capture life’s joie de vivre and make us feel like dancing. Radiating energy and good vibes with 80s flair and a “look-at-me” attitude, hedonistic opulence dominates as the “Insta-generation” create show-stopping statements and Instagrammable moments with their wardrobe choices. The message is crystal clear: There is nowhere to hide with this joyful, expressive direction because, quite simply, who would want to!

 fashion-and-jewelry-trends-the-joy-of-expression-image.jpg

It’s time to shine in a kaleidoscope of bright, evocative hues. Colors that radiate joy, energy and freedom crowd into our lives, jostling for attention in peacock blues teamed with retro-inspired fuchsias, all highlighted with glittering gold for “Instagrammable” moments.

 fashion-and-jewelry-trends-the-joy-of-expression.jpg

fashion-and-jewelry-trends-the-joy-of-expression-necklace-inspiration.jpg

The intense, shimmering colors of the 80s receive a contemporary update as opulence continues to dominate both day and evening-wear, with crystal making a powerful statement in interwoven patterns to add extraordinary radiance and shine.

fashion-and-jewelry-trends-the-joy-of-expression-color-inspiration.jpg

fashion-and-jewelry-trends-the-joy-of-expression-crystal-color-inspirations.jpg

The Surprise of the Unexpected

“In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different.” – Coco Chanel

In a world of absolute extremes, a new generation of consumers is determined to close the gap. In this brave new world we will shake off old-fashioned restraints, elevating our designs to new levels of artistic expression. 

fashion-and-jewelry-trends-the-surprise-of-the-unexpected-image.jpg

A closeness between street-wear and couture will emerge to create a modern-day direction, as dress codes continue to unravel. Impactful and expressive, we embark on a new casual way of dressing up … Or is it a high-end way of dressing down? No matter, it is really only the surprise of the unexpected that interests us.

fashion-and-jewelry-trends-the-surprise-of-the-unexpected.jpg

Pushing the boundaries of body adornment, fluid new jewelry forms morph with the wearer, wrapping around the skin to create a new emotional connection.

fashion-and-jewelry-trends-the-surprise-of-the-unexpected-jewel-inspirition.jpg

Bold, yet subdued, rich yet subtle, brilliant yet toned down – a visual cacophony of color results in a radical palette that reflects the eclectic nature of the direction, with indigo blue offset by uplifting yellow, and deep burgundy muted with “softly does it” mint green.

Surprising crystal cut and color combinations bring standout style to cleverly crafted pieces.

The rules are thrown out as we experiment with surprising new combinations of playful, shimmering crystal colors and exaggerated proportions in striking hand jewelry.

Crystal in varying shapes and sizes is teamed with surprising color combinations, highlighting fluidity and strict lines in the same piece.

The Excitement of Creativity

“In difficult times, fashion is always outrageous.” – Elsa Schiaparelli

 fashion-and-jewelry-trends-excitement-of-creativity.jpg

Why wear one piece when you can wear 10? Making a stand against perceived “good taste” and “normcore” fashion, radical self-expression and a new fantastic fusion of design collide in multicultural hi-lo styling, with individual and eccentric style mash-ups defining the look to Africa rising. 

fashion-and-jewelry-trends-the-excitement-of-creativity.jpg

Vibrant patterns, clashing colors, and an irreverent attitude abounds as we pile on layer after layer to highlight the complexity and multifaceted directions of everyday life. The urge to be different, to be heard, to make an impact will intensify as we seek the excitement of renewed creativity.  Wear it your way” is the guideline, with a modern manifesto of creativity paying homage.

fashion-and-jewelry-trends-the-excitement-of-creativity-spike-shoe-inspiration.jpg

Excitement is created via a marriage between leather and crystal, highlighting hybrid combinations of material and form in an eccentric, global style mash-up.

Bold, yet subdued, rich yet subtle, brilliant yet toned down – a visual cacophony of color results in a radical palette reflecting the eclectic nature of the direction, with indigo blue offset by radiant uplifting yellow, and deep burgundy pared back with “softly does it” mint green.

 

fashion-and-jewelry-trends-the-excitement-of-creativity-color-inspirations.jpg

Exciting effects in brilliant crystal offer a sense of individuality and creativity to any silhouette.

fashion-and-jewelry-trends-the-excitement-of-creativity-color-and-designs-inspirations.jpg

fashion-and-jewelry-trends-the-excitement-of-creativity-color-and-design-inspiration.jpg

Rebelling against minimalism, a more-is-more mindset takes hold as crystal collides in multicultural patterns with color piling on color and hi-lo styling creating a chaotic, visual cacophony in design.

fashion-and-jewelry-trends-the-excitement-of-creativity-crystal-shoe-design-inspiration.jpg

Africa is on the rise with craftwork, clashing pattern and bold crystal colors interwoven with recycled, natural textiles.

New Swarovski Crystal Perspectives for Spring Summer innovations

SWAROVSKI’S MEGA TRENDS OF 2018

The New Innovations and Inspirations within Swarovski’s New Perspectives Trends give us a refreshing design palette to ignite our creativity as we look forward to an interesting future in fashion and jewelry expressions.

New Swarovski Crystal Beads Innovations and Trends No Normal

Today we explore one of the four top jewelry and fashion trends entitled

NO NORMAL

The NO NORMAL trend pushes our standard ideas and perceptions away from the norm, into a brave new world, where expressions of oneself are boundless.

This trend embraces lofty ideals of loving yourself and others despite all differences.

We are becoming more open to change, in all ways, including gender, race, religion, and society. This includes transitioning in our beliefs, embracing different perspectives, allowing others to be free to be who they truly are. All of this offers us hope fr a more inclusive future.

Swarovski_Crystal_No_Normal_Jewelry_and_Fashion_Trends

The color pallet highlighted within this jewelry and fashion trend include a new take on the traditionally bold tones. Softening the intensity of some primary colors with a lacquer effect, creates more of a gemstone look and incorporating natural neutral hues such as clear Crystal and White Opal, provides you with designs that can be paired with many different outfits.

Swarovski_No_Normal_Jewelry_Trend

Colors Influencing this NO NORMAL Trend Include:

Swarovski_Crystal_Rose_Peach

Rose Peach

Rose Peach is a soft peach to pink tone that evokes cherry blossoms in spring and English roses in late summer to create a bold, yet subtle romantic, and always elegant quality. The Rose Peach beautifully compliments all skin tone types and is particularly popular in wedding jewelry.

Swarovski_Crystal_Denim_Blue_On_Trend

Denim Blue

Denim Blue is a classic intermediate blue tone with a subtle hint of grey blending nicely with Montana blue and can be used both casually and transition seamlessly for sophisticated evening-wear. This color blends seamlessly with the exceptionally popular denim trend.

 Swarovski_4320_Crystal_Royal_Green_Lacquer_Pearshape_Fancy_Stones_

Crystal Royal Green

Crystal Royal Green Shiny Lacquer is a charming emerald green tone, created to emulate the rich and majestic colors found in an authentic emerald gem. This regal hue is accentuated by a subtle, yet stylish shimmer that captures the graceful and intriguing radiance within a true emerald.

Swarovski_4731_Crystal_Kite_Fancy_Stones

Clear Crystal

Crystal is the April birthstone color representing a clear diamond and its translucent quality creates a subtle shine of prismatic colors that complements all shades of the color spectrum.

Swarovski_4470_Crystal_Dark_Red_Lacquer_Cushion_Fancy_Stones

Crystal Dark Red

Crystal Dark Red Shiny Lacquer is a deep coral like or red wine type of color, similar to the Siam red but not quite as dark. The Shiny Lacquer coating is applied to the top of the crystal, creating a refined shimmer exposing the rich red tones underneath.

Swarovski_Crystal_White_Opal

White Opal

White Opal can also be used for the October birthstone color and is white in nature saturated in a milky opalescence that gives it a light romantic quality.

Jewelry Design Trends and Directions

Metals are configured into complex meandering forms that are exclusive and unique.

The word customization takes on a new meaning, as design trends shift to celebrate human “imperfections” and personalized details.

Swarovski_Crystal_Jewelry_Trends_and_Inspiration_no_normal

Sculptural jewels juxtaposed with the delicate beauty of a glossy gemstone look, create a dramatic fusion of edgy and graceful.

Swarovski_Crystal_Jewelry_Trends_and_Inspiration_no_normal_designs

Deconstructed settings and “one-of-a-kind” jewelry designs are increasing due to the personalization demands of the Millennials.

Pieces are being designed to be worn as extensions of the wearer’s body.

FASHION DESIGN DIRECTIONS

The exciting new fusion of minimalism and maximalism explores unexpected pairings, merging the eclectic with the conventionally classic.

Jewelry_trends_2018

Classic minimalist staples such as the white shirt, transforms into a background to re-imagined shapes and suiting.

A major focus will be on voluminous sleeves and loose panels, which will detach themselves from the main garment.

A focus on charming basics, which are well designed and devoted to the user, without neglecting beauty, will take hold.

Jewelry Design Directions

Swarovski_Crystal_Spring_and_Summer_Jewelry_and_Color_Trends_and Inspiration.PNG

“My focus on this piece was to make something for the upper body/neck/shoulder, playing with an exaggerated floral surface and replacing the randomness of nature with the use of both color and shape intertwined, the “hacking” is represented by the manipulation of the base metal, as brass is manipulated into 3D forms” – Andy Farrow Jewelry Designer

Swarovski_Crystal_Jewelry_and_Color_Trends

With our world becoming increasingly digital, we find ourselves craving a balancing effect, one that increases a deeper connection to our natural world.

Millennials and Gen Z value sustainability as a crucial element in their products and will have an impact on their purchasing decisions. Therefor as beaders and jewelry designers, it’s very important to bring to life the back story of your pieces in order to gain a real connection with what people are drawn to physically and why they will support you morally. 

Swarovski supports this crucial element with their Four Main Principles:

Swarovski_Sustainability-in-Business

Create, Protect, Respect, and Care

Swarovski Crystals are not only stunning, there is a long history of valuing sustainability on every level, from social to environmental responsibility. Swarovski has a longstanding commitment to create products that are both innovative and environmentally conscientious. This appreciation and pioneering spirit distinguishes them apart from their competitors. For over 120 years Swarovski has placed great importance on respecting people and the planet, along with quality craftsmanship to bring the world gorgeous one-of-a-kind crystals that everyone can admire and respect.

Since Swarovski’s inception in 1895, Daniel Swarovski was unwavering in his idealism that business needs to assist communities in flourishing as well as conserving the natural resources we all need to thrive.

Swarovski Crystal Color jewelry and fashion trends

An increase interest in fabric manipulation along with intense high-definition colors with super tactile surfaces such as this Swarovski Pearl blouse, create engineered organic surfaces are at the core for new fashion directions.

tassel_bracelets_inspiration

Versatile Designs Trend  

Irregular patterns, smaller beads mixed with larger crystals, bright color combinations and tassels, create exotic, almost tropical influences.

I certainly hope these fashion and jewelry design trends have inspired you to move forward in innovating fresh creations for your Spring and Summer days ahead!
