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 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?!!)

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

Swarovski_Jewelry_Trend_Inspirations_Spring_and_Summer_2015Welcome to the Spring/Summer 2015 Color and Trend Inspirations – ‘Traces of Time’

This season, Swarovski’s trend analysts have identified a radical change of mindset in relation to lifestyle choices. Referred to as ‘Traces of Time’, it relates to today’s changing perceptions of age, where the phenomenon of aging societies is having a huge impact on a global scale, leading to important changes in healthcare, retirement systems, and family structures.

Indeed, the generations are converging: the older groups are staying youthful and more carefree, while the young become less rebellious and more career-oriented. This new way of experiencing the impact of age on choices, lifestyles, and aesthetics is reflected in Swarovski’s new season’s crystal assortments. There are four key inspirational themes and corresponding innovation highlights for Spring/Summer 2015: Faded Memories (Classic), Sunset Rituals (Romantic), Vivid Moments (Progressive), and Forgotten Dreams (Glamour).

The trend and color inspirations below focus on the Classic – Faded Memories theme.

FADED MEMORIES

____________________

With the ongoing recession, the relentless drive of technology, and the overcrowding of our physical and mental space, we hold on to memories of better, more carefree times.

“Technology has complicated our lives. We hunger after the simplicity of the past, or the effortless days of our childhood. We need to adopt the simple notions of playfulness and individual expression if we are to avoid becoming bland and homogenized nations.”

This need to get away from it all is one of the reasons the trends for nostalgia and retro are still continuing so strongly.

Faded and washed with a Polaroid nostalgia, the theme updates almost kitsch references, making them more adult yet still playful and fun.

Inspired by architecture and structure, a new geometric language focuses on faceting and the magic of the cut. There is also a strong graphic direction toward vintage, weathered American billboards and road signs, reminding us of summers past.

THE MOOD

____________________

There is an increasing focus on tactility and texture in all design. Monochromatic opaque finishes incorporate in traditional shapes for jewelry. In fashion, crystals are used with graphic simplicity to create large bandings of patterns in different linear formats. The interplay of light through color achieves importance in all design segments.

Crystal is incorporated to bring a lighter, playful attitude to geometric designs.

Angular shapes are softened and modernized with different material combinations and graphic interplay.

Electronics imitate everyday objects where colors and shapes reflect optimism and humor.

PRODUCT INSPIRATION

___________________________

Subtle, almost washed-out colors such as Vintage Rose, Violet Champagne, Silk, Crystal Antique Pink, Light Amethyst SatinLavender, Denim BlueCrystal Blue Shade, and Light Azore Satin to name a few in any of the SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS help evoke summer nostalgia.

Tone-on-tone Flat Backs and Crystal Pave Balls in various shapes create stunning tactile textures.

Swarovski Opal hues such as Air Blue Opal, Caribbean Blue Opal, Chrysolite Opal, Pacific Opal, Rose Water Opal, Sand Opal, Violet Opal, Cyclamen Opal, and White Opal add an air of sophistication. Swarovski Buttons, Sew-on Stones, and simple motifs create a playful and unexpected design element and can be beautifully incorporated into jewelry designs as well as their traditional sew-on uses.

Fine sparkling crystals complement and balance precise linear design. The matt iridescence of Crystal Pearls, coupled with the radiant shine of sparkling crystal, creates a strongly modern effect.

SWAROVSKI COLOR COMBINATION INSPIRATION

______________________________________________

Inspiring crystal and color combinations from the Classic theme range from the romantic sparkle the clear Crystal embodies in company with similar hues expressed in the delicate hints of light bluish sparkle found in the Crystal Moonlight and moving into more of an intense interplay with light and colors of pinks, blues and yellows transmitted through Crystal AB. The Crystal Silver Shade is a soft and elegant grayish sparkly effect that blends nicely with the lighter crystal hues as well as the darker grey or black tones. The graceful neutral/taupe tones of Crystal Golden Shadow, is a gorgeous effect that can bring together warmer colors in the intermediate or brown tones. The Crystal Brandy is a rich gold and apricot sparkle effect that can be used as a nice transition into either a soft Jonquil yellow or the vibrant orange colors such as Fire Opal and Tangerine.

The White Opal is a beautiful milky white hue that serves as a wonderful transition into more expressions of color, such as this featured green, blue and purple color palate. The Palace Green Opal, Chrysolite Opal, and Pacific Opal, blend nicely into the new Crystal Iridescent Green, Light Azore, Air Blue Opal, Denim Blue, Crystal Blue Shade, Light Blue Crystal Pearl, Aquamarine, Indicolite, Blue Zircon and Light Turquoise. The Crystal Antique Pink is a soft and feminine effect that can be incorporated into other pinkish hues such as Light Rose, Rose, Rose Water Opal, Powdered Rose Pearl, Mauve Pearl, Light Amethyst and Crystal Lilac Shadow.
