Pantone Fall Color Trends 2015

(Pantone Fashion Color Report Fall 2015)

I can’t believe how fast this summer is flying by! It’s not over yet, we still have some time left to squeeze out some last minute fun in the sun. As we wind down the summer, it’s a perfect time to start thinking creatively about our new fall fashion and jewelry accessories!

The fall season can be busy with all of the arts and craft shows, family gatherings, apple picking, pie making, leaf peeping excursions…whoa, it becomes a lot (a lot of fun, that is!). To help you start gearing up for all of your fall fun and artistic ventures, I will go through the top 10 colors for fall 2015 and the complimentary Swarovski Crystal Colors.

Top 10 Colors for Fall 2015

(Top 10 Colors for Fall 2015 designed by Mag)

Right off the bat, my favorites are the Desert Sage, Stormy Weather, Cashmere Rose and Amethyst Orchid. The Bicsay Bay is also beautiful and I’m not normally a big orange fan, but the Cadmium Orange is a soft, almost a peachy orange which I find myself being drawn to more and more. I will break up these colors in stages, highlighting the first three colors now and the others will follow. So let’s get started…

 Dried Herb

(Pantone Fall 2015 Color Trend Report)

The Dried Herb is a classic olive green shade which people are naturally drawn to during the fall and winter months. It was once thought of as primarily a safari or military color, but is now being elevated into a fashionable fall staple that we can perceive as sophisticated and chic. It has an organic quality and is closely related to nature and earthly fragrances.

Desert Sage

(Pantone Fall 2015 Color Trend Report)

Desert Sage is a soft and calming greenish grey color that is an ideal neutral tone. This lovely hue expresses a timeless quality that is stylish and compelling enough to make an influential fashion statement in and of itself. It connects us to a valuable feeling that naturally inspired colors are comforting and peaceful. Additionally it reminds us of things that are real and not invented.

Complimentary Swarovski Crystals and Pearls include;

Stormy Weather Pantone Fall Color Trends

(Pantone Fall 2015 Color Trend Report)

Signifying quality and luxury, Stormy Weather is a powerful blue gray shade that is strong, protective and enduring. Reminiscent of the sky on a gray, overcast day, this deep color is a quintessential fall favorite. Creating elegant accessories to compliment this popular hue will be very easy due to the rich assortment Swarovski provides in this stylish tone.

Swarovski Pearls are very popular among jewelry designers and admirers for many reasons. They are available in a wide range of colors and effects that have an innovative, lustrous pearlescent coating that provides a flawless, silky smooth surface resistant to rubbing, scratching, perfume and perspiration. They are made with a Swarovski Crystal core and are always perfectly symmetrical.

All in all, they bestow a refined sophistication to all designs, especially wedding jewelry and are simply divine!

The design world has its focus firmly on the future with the rapid ascension of 3D printing. “Indeed, the future will see us able to buy an item online and print it out at home. With digital files so easily manipulated, it will also enable companies to more quickly adapt their products as to what works, or let the user themselves experiment with the design to enable true personalization.” (Peter Weijmarshausen, CEO and cofounder of 3D printing marketplace and community Shapeways.) With the escalation of 3D printing capabilities, the architectural and sculptural will offer a different sense of luxury. In parallel with this, the designs of the future remain firmly committed to green issues. These concerns, coupled with the advance in technology, have created an entirely new design ethic, with structures mimicking nature enjoying a new-found success as wearable pieces of art. In what has been termed “Next Nature,” technology and nature will now coexist, with nature providing endless inspiration for technology. The meeting of these polar opposites – nature and science – is transforming not only urban spaces but also our wardrobes.
