THE MOOD

A unique, eclectic, and multilayered style that reflects the blend of traditional African and Asian craft and handwork techniques.

A mix of materials – Swarovski Crystals, Pearls, Beads, textiles, and metals – combine to create rich 3D surfaces with sculptural aspects.

A focus on layering, where Asian and African patterns combine with crystal to create unique patchwork, creates a cross-cultural design ethic.

Flat fabrics come alive with a focus on volume, texture, and tactility.

The importance of head-wear, both in Asia and Africa, gives rise to a new accessories direction – the reinterpretation of the turban.

Fabric becomes important in accessories for cost reduction and global production.

“Prints give products a cultural reference and identity.”  (20/20 Consumer Insights)

Swarovski Color and Trend Inspirations Spring/Summer 2015 – Romantic Theme

Swarovski_Innovations_and_Inspirations_Spring_Summer_2015

Welcome to the SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS Spring/Summer 2015 Color and Jewelry Trend Inspirations ‘Traces of Time’

The trend and color inspirations below focus on the Romantic – Sunset Rituals theme.

Swarovski_Spring_Summer_2015_Trends_Romantic_Sunset_Rituals

ROMANTIC

_____________________

SUNSET RITUALS

This theme is based on the ancient tribal whisperings and sage teachings of our earliest ancestors, guiding us toward the things that really matter – food, shelter, and water.

A spirit of sustainable self-reliance makes creative use of everything found along life’s path to shape a personal vision.

For designers, fashionistas there remains a continuing strong demand for and emphasis on stories for their products. We currently desire a digital detox, encapsulated in the rise of the notion of becoming “unplugged” and the trend toward “mindfulness.”

A focus on nature’s immense power is echoed increasingly in design forms, structures, and materials.

Swarovski_Spring_Summer_2015_Trends_Romantic_The_Mood

THE MOOD

________________

Romantic jewelry is inspired by the lifestyle and beliefs of the desert tribes, concentrating more on the emotional value (e.g. talismans) than the technical execution.

Raw materials found in nature are used with shapes and surfaces, often left untouched, in irregular and rough forms with a strong focus on Crystal Pearls.

There is a reduction in fashion with the use of multifunctional pieces: a single piece of cloth doubles as a shawl, sarong, or a turban – offering shade, protection, or warmth – for a life on the move.

The rise of the tribe gains more prominence as people continue wishing to belong. As high-tech individuals we feel disconnected from Mother Nature; natural and primal designs help us reconnect with the earth.

__________________________________

Shapes are inspired by purely organic creations to embrace the “imperfect perfection” trend.

Small and large crystals blend together to create nature-inspired compositions. Swarovski Pendants and BeCharmed Pave Beads and BeCharmed Spike Beads become ancient tribal treasures – collected and cherished. Matt, sand-like surfaces are brightened up with Mini Size Beads.

The vibrant Tangerine and apricot tone of Crystal Brandy, along with the warm deep brown hues such as Crystal Golden Shadow, Light Colorado Topaz, Light Smoked Topaz, Smoked Topaz, and Crystal Copper, awaken memories of summer sunsets over haunting desert landscapes.

SWAROVSKI SEGEMENT INSPIRATIONS

Basic, organic shapes come together in random – often asymmetric – order to create jewelry that looks like it is designed on impulse.

Inspiration is taken from untouched natural shapes and raw surfaces.

Imperfections and irregularity create a unique look.

There is an ongoing tendency to repair and care for valued items rather than replace them.

We will witness: “A casual bohemian styling direction inspired by global fringe culture and off-grid living.” (WGSN)

Products entail a certain talisman-like quality – true, simple, and honest, they speak to our innermost emotions.

Fashion Trends and Color Inspirations for the New SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS Fall and Winter 2014/15 Innovations! Featuring EXTRAVAGANT SIMPLICITY

Classic Extravagant Simplicity Swarovski Fashion and Color TrendsThe extravagant simplicity style focuses on a pared-back feel is prevalent as the design world becomes focused on what is being termed “Boredom Beauty.” This new design ethic sees basics reinvented with hidden detailing and purpose. Wardrobes concentrate on the achievable and wearable. Alongside this, a new male/female hybrid is introduced. Indeed, there is a strong, ongoing focus on the classic shapes of the past with a modern interpretation. Form follows function as in Bauhaus doctrine, and in this theme, cut and finishing touches are key: details are refined and elegant.

The Mood

Classic The Mood Swarovski Fashion and Color Trends

A firm focus on keeping it straightforward and simple coins the new design ethic of “no-fuss” fashion.

Crystal emerges in clean, geometric structures or as finishing touches to simplified designs.

Minimalistic jewelry styles – clean-cut stones and alternative materials – become the new expression of luxury.

Feminine lines meet masculine style in the new androgyny, where men wear typically “female” colors such as beige, pink, cream, and champagne.

Basics are reinvented to lay the foundation for a wardrobe that will bridge both fashion and time.

Reduced, well-chosen, and functional designs in New Segments take center stage.

PRODUCT INSPIRATION

New Swarovski Color Dark Moss Green

Swarovski Elements Dark Moss Green

Introducing the natural into the urban, this rich, tourmaline tone has been inspired by genuine gemstones. Its jewel-like character is the perfect statement for all seasons and closes another gap in the color assortment. With Dark Moss Green it’s all about “back to nature.” The opulent dark green reflects both bold traditional looks and futuristic designs following the neo-ecological trend. By mimicking the most precious material nature offers – genuine gemstones – Dark Moss Green is a must for the current ecology-aware trends that seek a touch of luxury.

New Swarovski Effect Crystal Lilac Shadow

Swarovski Elements Crystal Lilac Shadow

Violets stand for romance, gold for splendor. Crystal Lilac Shadow is both. With its rich coloring and subtle golden coating that contains real gold, Crystal Lilac Shadow brings to mind imperial purple. An indisputably modern interpretation, it appears romantic and precious, almost royally opulent. A luxurious, deep tone of purple with an exciting hint of gold that both enriches and evokes mystery in designs – a standout shade that is unique to Swarovski.

New Swarovski Effect Crystal Blackberry Pearl

Swarovski Elements Crystal Blackberry Pearl

Crystal Blackberry Pearl recalls the ripeness of late summer berries and represents the very blood running through this fall’s fashion veins. Combine Crystal Blackberry Pearl with sparkling elements in Dark Moss Green or Crystal Lilac Shadow to give them a powerfully dark frame. Berry has been identified as the leading trend color this fall. Crystal Blackberry Pearl is therefore the epitome of fashion, bringing a subtle, hypnotizing mysterious quality to the scene.

Celebrating Peridot As The Gorgeous Birthstone Color For August

Swarovski August Birthstone Peridot

Peridot is the beautiful birthstone color for August

For the beautiful month of August we celebrate the gorgeous birthstone color of Peridot. People are continually drawn to the enchanting color of the light yet vibrant green tones radiating from Peridot. It is an exceptional color that is considered to bring friendship and is traditionally associated with love, truth, faithfulness and loyalty. Peridot is also valuable in enhancing growth, prosperity and openness. Traditional metaphysical aspects of this beautiful August birthstone include fame, dignity and protection.

Swarovski Crystal Peridot Necklace

Swarovski 6106 Pearshape Pendant Featuring Peridot

The captivating color of Peridot makes it one of the post popular colors that Swarovski makes and is slightly darker in color than the light pastel hue of Chrysolite and is lighter than the richer, darker gem color of Emerald.

Swarovski Crystal Bicone 5328 Peridot AB

Swarovski 5328 Bicone Bead Featuring Peridot AB

Swarovski has created exquisite coatings that are applied to the base color of Peridot, creating an array of luxurious affects to incorporate in each unique design and color scheme. The Aurora Borealis coating is one of the most popular and timeless affects, refracting the light and emitting a rainbow of sparkling colors with pink, blues and yellow hues.

Swarovski Crystal 5328 Bicone Peridot AB 2X

Swarovski 5328 Bicone Bead Featuring Peridot AB 2X

The Aurora Borealis affect is taken to the next level with the AB 2X coating. The entire bead has been coated in this brilliantly dazzling finish that boasts the brightest sparkle available that transforms a normal peridot color into almost neon sheen of lively pinks, blues, yellows, and greens.

Swarovski 5328 Bicone Peridot Champagne

Swarovski 5328 Bicone Bead Featuring Peridot Champagne

The subtle sophistication of the Champagne Coating is a unique and fairly rare coating that displays a soft and elegant affect that can be applied to many different colors. The Champagne coating adds a soft yellow sparkle effect which is about half of the intensity of the AB coating, as if a shimmering effervescent color has been poured into the bead, which softens the original color. In some cases the Champagne coating can turn the original color into an exclusive color combination, for instance a Light Sapphire will turn into a light green color after adding a hint of yellow champagne.

Swarovski Crystal 5328 Bicone Peridot Satin

Swarovski 5328 Bicone Bead Featuring Peridot Satin

The Satin Coating is a lovely effect that adds a soft silvery shimmer which is its distinguishing characteristic that also slightly darkens the original color, creating a subtle vintage appearance that is very popular in the fall and winter months.

Swarovski Bicone Bead Peridot Dorado

Swarovski 5328 Bicone Bead Peridot Dorado

Swarovski Peridot Dorado Bicone bracelet

Swarovski Crystal Bicone Bracelet Featuring Peridot Dorado

The Dorado Coating is a tasteful solid bronze affect that is applied to half of the bead.  The Peridot Dorado is an specially unique look that displays a beautiful two toned color combination where half of the bead is a vibrant green color and the other half is a solid bronze effect. This stunning bracelet was created by our wonderful customer Leslie who says “It is much prettier in person – the Dorado finish is just like WOW on this piece. I recommend it to anyone who wants to make a statement – thanks for having it available! I’ve seen it nowhere else.”
