Power to Shine
‘Resilience’ is the keyword for Fall/Winter 2016/17. Social disquiet brings a need for self-reliance, with people taking their future into their own hands to create a better society where everyone has the power to shine.
Classic: Protectors of Equality
A feeling of cohesion is sweeping the world. Segment: Accessories
Color Combinations and Product Inspiration
Soft and strong are combined with an updated blend of red, violet and peach tones to reflect a contemporary unisex direction. Black and Burgundy hues merge with Amethyst to add extra depth and strength to this color palette.
Swarovski Crystal Product Inspiration
Edgy crystal shapes play on notions of both elegance and toughness for an updated armor effect in accessories.
The soft violet and crystal with the slightest hints of blue hues of Crystal Vitrail Light transition exceptionally well with the classically complex sparkle of Crystal AB. These are wonderful complimentary colors to the deeper tones of Amethyst, which blends very well with the rich bordeaux quality of Burgundy. Crystal Silver Night is a perfect progression into the deeper perspective of the always and forever-popular Jet black.
Designs will increasingly reference strength and power, with embellishment and decoration becoming fiercer; showcasing a desire not to back down.
Amethyst, Burgundy and Jet are traditional Fall and Winter staple colors and when these are mixed with the lighter elements of purple and peachy hues (Light Peach Crystals and Peach Pearls), it adds a little more balance and progression to the color palette as well as an uplifting feeling.
