Swarovski Elements PreSeason Launch Fall Winter 2014-2015 The Mood

The focus on the magnificence of the shifting seasons serves as a visual reminder of the wonder of nature and the attention we need to pay to the planet. Softened, bleached colors convey a nostalgic feel and highlight the returning trend of taking inspiration from the washed-out and faded colors of materials such as Polaroids. The design world is also highlighting the importance of blended colors, as reflected in the current fashion of dip-dye for hair, fabrics, and even make-up. The southern and northern hemispheres experience polar opposite seasonal changes – the beauty of these blends is that they appeal to both hemispheres in equal measure.“Splicing” is a major trend movement – splicing, stacking, layering, and blending to show shifting levels of color. The top half appears sweet, reassuring, and familiar, while the bottom is tough and provocative.
