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.
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.
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.
Swarovski Crystal Jewelry Trends
Our fascination of underwater life continues grow and trend, where mysterious creatures and new fantastic crystal shapes, such as the New Swarovski Crystal 2612 Jelly Fish Flatback and 1695 Sea Urchin Round Stone, lend endless inspiration to designers. This on trend jewelry design displays the beauty of the Swarovski Jelly Fish Flatback glued into settings and connects the the Swarovski Crystal 4139 Round Rings in vibrant hues such as Crystal Bermuda Blue and Crystal Virtail Light. A beautiful reference to movement and flexability with this free flowing type of aquatic design inspiration!
Céline Cousteau, the granddaughter of the ocean explorer Jacques Yves Cousteau, does not only follow in his footsteps as a celebrated filmmaker. She is also a humanitarian and environmentalist, committed to saving the treasures in the depths of the oceans for future generations.
She collaborated with Swarovski for these Spring/Summer Innovations, to bring the depths of aquatic elements on land and crystallize them for all to enjoy! By creating pieces to wear, these styles help us to honor our connection to the oceans and nature itself.
The Swarovski Crystal 6730 Radiolarian Pendant and 6731 Sea Snail Pendant are perfect elements to incorporate into designs that bring the magic of the sea, to life!
Bright colors and unique styles lend to beautiful new designs that unite our desire to feel closer to the enchanting life from the depths below.
Swarovski Color Inspiration Highlighted in this Spring and Summer Progressive Trend
Swarovski’s new Yellow Opal color is a bright and cheerful opal hue that reminds me of lemon meringue. It’s light and fluffy with almost flex of gold sparkling throughout and blends well with Jonquil and Powder Yellow Pearls.
Beautiful oceanic blues include Crystal Bermuda Blue, Sapphire, Crystal Blue Shade, Indicolite, blending into Crystal Scarabaeus Green, Fuchsia, Crystal AB, Tanzanite and Crystal Light Chrome.
BODY-CON FASHION ATHLEISURE TREND INCORPORATING CRYSTALS
(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.
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?!!)
DIY Instructions on Applying Swarovski Crystals to Sports Pants
Jewelry designs and embellished fabrics will embrace shapes generated by the movement of water – undulating, wavy elements are heavily embellished with crystal.
The fluidity of modern lifestyles extends into fashion. Glittering crystal components reflect the beauty of light on water.
Sports inspired elements such as bands and straps are combined with crystals to create new luxury details and accessories. Who doesn’t want to be fashionable while they get fit?
Swarovski Crystal Stretch Bracelets are a fun, easy-to-wear splash of sparkle to add to your athleisure wardrobe. They’re lightweight, and best of all – they s-t-r-e-t-c-h – making them simple as-can-be to take on and off! They make perfect gifts because they fit most wrist sizes and because they stretch, you can wear them up higher on your arm if you like it to stay in place (while you get your workout on, or just chasing around those energetic kiddos). You can also wear them loose around your wrist and stack them with a variety of beautiful colors. Sooooo many great options with these Swarovski Crystal Bracelets – no wonder they’re so popular!
Swarovski Crystal Embellished Nike Shoes
Put a little pep in your step by embellishing your trainers! It’s just yet another popular trend to add in your athleisure gear. You can never have too many Crystals – head-to-toe!
Retro Glam Swimsuit
What would water fashion trends be like without your water suit?! Incorporating Swarovski Crystals into everything you wear this summer, even right down to your swimsuit, is a fun way to express your individual style!
This embellished swimsuit adds sparkling Crystal elements such as a 80101 BeCharmed Pave Bead in the center along with Swarovski Pendants dangling and beaded Crystals throughout.
Take your swimsuit and make it your very own by sewing, gluing, beading or hot fixing your favorite styles of Swarovski Crystals on and turn your suit into a glamorous piece of shimmering artwork. (better have your shades on when this bikini hits the sun 😉
