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

Beautiful, brilliant and multi-functional, the new Swarovski Crystal DeLite color palette offers interest and intrigue to any design. The continual focus on hi-lo styling and the casualization of luxury is perfectly captured in the blending and blurring of the iridescent hues in this stunning color range. 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.

trendflag-the-serenity-of-being.jpg

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

Belts become a strong feature with radiant crystal embellishment paying homage to the increasing desire for fun fashion with an 80s twist.

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.

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

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

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

fashion-and-jewelry-trends-the-surprise-of-the-unexpected-jewel-and-color-patterni-nspirition.jpg

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

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

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

jewelry-and-fashion-trends.jpg

trend-the-surprise-of-the-unexpected.jpg

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.

I hope you’ve been inspired by these new Swarovski Crystal Styles, colors and design ideas!

Spring/Summer Swarovski Color, Jewelry Trends & Style Inspiration ~ Focusing on the Progressive Trend: WATER

Swarovski Blue Color inspirations

New Swarovski Crystal Spring and Summer 2017 Innovations:

The Balance of Nature Focusing on The Progressive Trend WATER

WATER is arguably the most fundamental and powerful of all life forces. Water is essential to life, we simply cannot survive without it. Water is dynamic. It can be both devastatingly violent, or tranquil and calming. Whether we celebrate its depth and stillness, or simply gaze it in contemplative awe – water with its symbolic sense of rebirth and renewal, is influencing our life in new ways and holding the design world in thrall.

Swarovski Color and Jewelry Trends Spring Summer 2017

So often we look to nature to inspire us in many aspects of our life and water is shaping our world in a variety of new ways. Wellness spas centered on water and hydrotherapy are on the rise, while aquariums and underwater hotels help to highlight the inherent beauty of the marine environment.

Swarovski Crystal Water color and jewelry trends Spring Summer Innovations

Fashion and Jewelry Trends

Jewelry designs, fashion motifs and home decor that echo the brilliant hues of coral reefs, draw our attention to the need to preserve these fragile marine environments. They help us to be more mindful in protecting  our natural habitat and help us to be aware that clean water and keeping our ecosystems pristine, is inherently vital to our continued wellbeing.

BODY-CON FASHION ATHLEISURE TREND INCORPORATING CRYSTALS

Swarovski Crystal Athleisure wear trend

(Athleisure Wear Trend Pictures Compliments of SWAROVSKI)

Athleisure wear continues to be very popular with the idea that athletic wear can also be stylish and upgraded with embellishments using Swarovski Crystal Sew-On Stones, Swarovski Crystal Buttons and Swarovski Crystal Flatback Rhinestones. Fashion focuses on form with easy-to-wear pieces in bright hues, boldly decorated with crystal for a new day-wear design aesthetic.

Swarovski Crystal Athleisure wear Rock this popular trend

To make your Athleisure tops more fashionable, apply Transfers or Crystal Tex to add a bit of glamour. Geometric shapes arranged with an organic feel are especially popular. (please Contact Me for ordering details)

Athletic wear will continue to be very popular. The trend is moving towards embellishing athletic wear with Crystals and creating designs that can be dressy enough to transition from workouts into day activities, even work (if permitted), and (sometimes) even day into evening. It’s all about being able to transition from the gym or your yoga/palates class into your daily life, seamlessly. To do this well, your athletic wear needs to be fashionable and accessorized with crystals. (Any chance to add more Crystals into my life, well, what’s not to LOVE?!!)

Spring/Summer Swarovski Color, Jewelry Trends & Style Inspiration ~ Focusing on the Romantic Trend: EARTH

unnamed

Swarovski New Spring/Summer 2017 Trends and Innovations:

THE BALANCE OF NATURE

Our near total immersion in technology can create a disconnect between us and our natural environment.

“A growing body of research indicates that being detached from nature can actually jeopardize our happiness, weaken our immune system, and undermine our creativity and ability to focus.” (20/20 Consumer Vision, 2017).

In an effort to remain healthy, vibrant and in-tune with our natural surroundings, a new focus on the earth, and getting back to nature has arisen.

During this process, we examine how we can reconnect with our inner selves by focusing on the eternal elements: Air, Earth, Water, and Fire – the basis of everything we need to exist.

Today I am focusing on color, style and  jewelry trends within the

ROMANTIC Trend: Earth

Swarovski Crystal and color trends new spring summer beads

 Swarovski Crystal New Innovations and Trends Spring/Summer 2017

Swarovski’s new Spring/Summer 2017 Innovative color Graphite is a gorgeous dark hue exuding a few different colors in one. It is a dark and strong bluish gray-black tone with shadowy characteristics. The black is not as sold dark as Jet is. It is similar to Crystal Silver Night (without the hints of clear Crystal) combined with hints of deep grayish blue hues, similar to Morion.

The charcoal shadows, blending with the deep blue tones, speaks to this desired trend to be both mysteriously glamorous yet calmly classic. It’s both elegant and understated, with a strong unisex and universal color message.

The Swarovski shade Graphite is a perfectly on-trend color where people are increasingly drawn towards dark, neutral hues that evoke a sense of tranquility.

New Swarovski Crystal Scarab Beads in Crystal Scarabaeus Green Spring Summer 2017 Innovations

New Swarovski Crystal 5728 Scarab Beads 

It’s always exciting to see what new innovations Swarovski has come up with and the Crystal Scarab Bead is certainly a gorgeous representation of a classic emblem used throughout time. Harking back from ancient Egypt, the Scarab Beetle represents the heavenly cycle of rebirth and regeneration, ultimately symbolizing  eternity itself.

A creature of the earth and a “messenger” for the connection between man and nature, the scarab is a strong symbol of the natural life cycle. Swarovski is meticulous with their faceting structures and the Scarab Beads’ head and wings represents their attention to flawless details perfectly.

Swarovski Crystal new flatbacks spring summer colors and trends

 Swarovski Crystal 2798 Contour Flatback

The Spring/Summer 2017 Swarovski Crystal Innovations are gorgeous and the new Crystal Contour Rhinestone Flatback is a unique, organic and sophisticated type of style, with its asymmetrical facets and table top, is formed in a shape that is slightly reminiscent of natural rock or a foot print. It gives the impression of a natural discovery that has been molded by wind or water over the centuries.

Given the current turmoil in the world, there is a rising demand for designs that reflect the raw, natural, and unspoiled beauty of the planet. A beauty without rules, one that continues to grow and change over time due to the influence of natural elements. The Contour Crystal Flatback shape is that kind of beauty and will enhance our projects by infusing a natural type of element into your designs.

New Swarovski Crystal Spring Summer 2017 Innovations and Trends Romantic Earth

Swarovski Crystal Product Inspiration

Swarovski Crystal shapes that are highlighted within the Romantic (Earth) Trend are highly influenced by the natural environment, with an organic feel. Any round styles will be popular in this trend, as circles are found repeatedly throughout nature both physically and can also be thought of symbolically as the circle of life. Specific fashionable styles include the Swarovski Crystal 5000 Round Beads, the Swarovski Crystal 1088 Xirius Round Stones (very popular with placing them into settings and making Sabika-like jewelry) the 85001 Crystal BeCharmed Pave Thread Ring Beads (which are very versatile, they can be worn as a ring or used to make jewelry with the option of 1 or 2 holes).

Many other picturesque shapes, organic in nature include the wholesale Swarovski Crystal 3288 Xirius Sew On Stone, the Swarovski 4706 Trilliant Fancy Stone, the Swarovski Crystal 4568 Cussion Fancy Stone, or the all time favorite wholesale Swarovski Crystal 4470 Cushion Fancy Stone.

The new Swarovski Crystal 2304 Raindrop Flatback is an exquisitely elegant interpretation of  rain, drawing us closer to the graceful aspects of this life-giving element – water. The 2300 Crystal Pearshape Flatback is a smaller version of a raindrop, complimenting each other beautifully.

Swarovski Crystal Erath Trends Spring and Summer 2016-2017

Swarovski Crystal Color Combinations and Inspiration within the Romantic Earth Trend

As you can imagine, within the Earth Trend, the Swarovski Crystal color inspirations are comprised of organic tones that could be found in nature. Beginning with light to deep browns and topaz hues, moving into a range of beautiful deep to light blue tones, round out this connection to the natural environment.

Elegant Swarovski Crystal brown hues include; Crystal Golden Shadow (this coating is one of the most popular colors Swarovski has ever made, some people refer to it as a champagne color and is gorgeous for everyday wear and especially popular in wedding jewelry and for special occasions) Light Colorado Topaz, Crystal Bronze ShadeTopaz (a gorgeous amber tone), Crystal Copper,  Light Smoked Topaz and one of the darkest brown tones, Smoked Topaz. Smokey Quartz is an alluring brownish, grayish mixture which is a fantastic in-between color when mixing brown to gray or black colors.

Black and blue color tones are have consistently been very popular in the fashion and jewelry world. They are long-lasting, staple tones that seam to go with just about anything.

Spring/Summer Fashion Inspiration

As a counterpoint to mass produced jewelry and fashion and accessories, the “slow fashion movement” is gaining in popularity around the world. This is the idea of creating unique, individualized pieces of jewelry and fashion that speaks directly to you personally, even handmade for you specifically, that have a long-lasting quality, is particularly attractive to people. People are increasingly willing to pay more for higher quality accessories and wait longer for them to be produced because they understand the value of supporting local or handmade designers. 

This Earth trend embraces a getting back to your roots kind of vibe. Patterning, ethnic patterns and layering are popular. Using natural materials, such as denim is very fashionable, along with incorporating beads within or sewing onto fabric. Accessories will become multi-functional. Flat soled shoes continue to grow in popularity, representing a desire to return to nature.

Traditional elegance and subtlety mark our approach to the use of patterns. In order to appeal to modern globetrotters, ethnic styles are given a modern contemporary twist, favoring streamlined and classic shapes.

“Handcrafts such as weaving will become the spearhead of creative recycling” (Promostyl, SS17). The reappearance of handcrafting techniques – wrapping, coiling, weaving, and macrame’ are combined with crystal components to symbolize our need for integration and awareness.
