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

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.

“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).
