Listen up fashionistas! Swarovski has just launched their Spring/Summer 2014 trend report. This season’s overall trend is aptly titled “Facets of a Woman”. Each of the following trends showcase the various facets of a woman’s personality – strong, determined, vulnerable, creative, sophisticated, radiant. I hope these will inspire you to create jewelry to accentuate your own personality.
Minimalist Refinement – Classic
The Minimalist Refinement trend makes a statement with the use of black, white and grey as its primary colors. Additionally, touches of yellow add a subtle femininity to the stark lack of color. This trend plays to a woman’s confident and dynamic side. Try creating jewelry with clean, geometric lines using color of black and white with a slight pop of color.
Force of Nature – Romantic
Like a garden, this trend is breathtaking when in full bloom. Bright color collide with each other in a beautiful dance of nature – pinks, greens, purples and blues all working together to create patterns. This trend focuses on the nurturing, loving side of a woman. She will adorn herself with pieces that reflect her natural beauty. Try making a floral inspired piece of jewelry.
Poetic Radiance – Progressive
This trend shows a beautiful marriage between the stark, cold of technology and the soft, romantic nature of poetry. Together they create an unexpected juxtaposition of elements and colors – Amethyst, Crystal Luminous Green, Crystal Volcano, Crystal Silver Shade and Crystal Bermuda Blue. This illustrates a woman’s artistic side balanced with her technological side. Try creating jewelry that combines materials like resin and metal with the sparkle of crystal.
Mythical Allure – Glamour
The etherealness of this trend is highlighted by the watery colors of the ocean and the soft colors of a white sand beach. This theme highlights a woman’s sensual, goddess side she is strong yet delicate. Try making pieces that have movement, allowing the facets of the crystals to subtly catch the light.
