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

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.
