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.

Fashion Trends and Color Inspirations for the New SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS Fall and Winter 2014/15 Innovations! Featuring Romantic Urban Nomad

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.

Romanitc Urban Nomad Swarovski Fashion Trends

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 MOOD

Romantic The Mood Swarovski Fashion and Color Trends

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.

SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS NATURE LAB

The design world has its focus firmly on the future with the rapid ascension of 3D printing. “Indeed, the future will see us able to buy an item online and print it out at home. With digital files so easily manipulated, it will also enable companies to more quickly adapt their products as to what works, or let the user themselves experiment with the design to enable true personalization.” (Peter Weijmarshausen, CEO and cofounder of 3D printing marketplace and community Shapeways.) With the escalation of 3D printing capabilities, the architectural and sculptural will offer a different sense of luxury. In parallel with this, the designs of the future remain firmly committed to green issues. These concerns, coupled with the advance in technology, have created an entirely new design ethic, with structures mimicking nature enjoying a new-found success as wearable pieces of art. In what has been termed “Next Nature,” technology and nature will now coexist, with nature providing endless inspiration for technology. The meeting of these polar opposites – nature and science – is transforming not only urban spaces but also our wardrobes.
