The rise of global culture, the emergence of the global citizen, and a strong anti-appropriation ethic sees creative formats and completely new contexts being achieved in design. In an effort to make sense of our current polarizing circumstances, tales from the past are married with modern formats, blended together to construct a new reality.

BORROWING FROM BOTH THE DIGITAL AND THE DOWN-TO-EARTH, DESIGN WIDENS ITS FOCUS TO CELEBRATE CULTURAL HERITAGE, SPACE-AGE FORMATS AND EXOTIC ANCIENT TALES. THE SKY IS THE LIMIT IN THIS MASH-UP OF DIRECTIONS, WHERE THE ESCAPISM AND SELF-EXPRESSION OFFERED BY THE CYBER AGE IS BROUGHT BACK TO BASICS WITH THE BEAUTY OF THE ARCHAIC, CREATING DESIGNS INFUSED WITH INDIGENOUS WISDOM AND THE OPTIMISM OF A NEW GENERATION.

The art of reducing and simplifying, recycling and upcycling with deeper feeling and commitment has become standard for many collections. The appeal of paring down is central to our push toward decluttering our lives and freeing our minds in the quest for wellness and less stress. In our bid to reduce and rid our lives of excess we will reach for bespoke products and spaces that feel unique, we will search out design that has soul, and we will covet the alluring appeal of classic shapes with feeling and commitment.

Skull Beads Design Inspiration Featuring the Swarovski Crystal 5750-13mm Skull Beads in Crystal Silver Night. Below I used the 5040-6mm Jet Rondelle Bead and the 5540-12mm Artemis Beads in Jet. For the sparkling crown, I used the 5920-6mm Squaredelle Beads in Silver Jet. The silver flowerette bead is not a Swarovski product, I found it at my local Joann’s store. The Swarovski Crystal Pave Ball at the top is the 86001-8mm Jet Hematite. I made this Crystal Skull design into earrings, but it would make a great statement pendant as well.

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.

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 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 CLASSIC Trend: AIR

New Swarovski Crystal Spring Summer 2017 Innovations sneak peek

Swarovski New Spring/Summer 2017 Trends and Innovations:

THE BALANCE OF NATURE

Over the past 15 years technology and science have become a huge influence in our lives, from the way we meet, interact, live and even age. The constant influx of new technology has steadily become overwhelming, which has created a strong desire to step back and pause for thought.

In our technology-driven world, people are beginning to seek meaningfulness, fulfillment, and satisfaction in their daily lives. Wellbeing has become a global mantra.

Mindfulness, quietness and wellness is becoming increasingly important and will become even more prevalent as we move into the future.

All of this has an impact on us personally, culturally and globally on many levels including our desires within the fashion and design world as a whole.

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

CLASSIC Trend: AIR

A calm, luminescent palette of sophisticated neutrals, ranging from white to nude, pearl to soft grey, creates an element of solitude and an oasis of peace with the addition of barely-there lilac.

Silver metal and ultra-light elements alternate with crystal embellished details to create a calm, light look.

Large, single stone crystal jewelry, which is being referred to as a centering stone, combined with small stones, will become more popular. This style evokes a feeling of balance and purity.

Full body jewelry is on the rise as well as large crystals seeming to be suspended effortlessly in gravity-defying structures. Repeating double-sided elements express a meditative character, reflecting continuity and contemplation.

Spring and Summer Fashion Inspiration:

A Return to Mother Nature is the overall theme, including lots of layering, organic textures and tone-on-tone color combinations.

In the quest for a greater emotional connection, touch and texture add a sensory experience to materials. Swarovski Crystal components in geometric patterns are integrated into sharp tailored designs to create a sense of stillness.

New Swarovski Crystal Spring Summer Innovations and Trends Classic Air Color Inspirations flag

“There is a desire to redesign the basics by giving them an emotional dimention, with an extra dose of soul to make them unique.” (Peclers, SS17).

Streamlined layering, with varying thicknesses of materials overlapping to form a single garment will be a trend. “Experiments with materials in monochrome and geometric shapes add texture and replace prints.” (Peclers, SS17).

Fashion Trends and Color Inspirations for the New SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS Fall and Winter 2014/15 Innovations! Featuring EXTRAVAGANT SIMPLICITY

Classic Extravagant Simplicity Swarovski Fashion and Color TrendsThe extravagant simplicity style focuses on a pared-back feel is prevalent as the design world becomes focused on what is being termed “Boredom Beauty.” This new design ethic sees basics reinvented with hidden detailing and purpose. Wardrobes concentrate on the achievable and wearable. Alongside this, a new male/female hybrid is introduced. Indeed, there is a strong, ongoing focus on the classic shapes of the past with a modern interpretation. Form follows function as in Bauhaus doctrine, and in this theme, cut and finishing touches are key: details are refined and elegant.

The Mood

Classic The Mood Swarovski Fashion and Color Trends

A firm focus on keeping it straightforward and simple coins the new design ethic of “no-fuss” fashion.

Crystal emerges in clean, geometric structures or as finishing touches to simplified designs.

Minimalistic jewelry styles – clean-cut stones and alternative materials – become the new expression of luxury.

Feminine lines meet masculine style in the new androgyny, where men wear typically “female” colors such as beige, pink, cream, and champagne.

Basics are reinvented to lay the foundation for a wardrobe that will bridge both fashion and time.

Reduced, well-chosen, and functional designs in New Segments take center stage.
