Recently we have learned more about the trends predicted by Swarovski for the upcoming year.
Looking ahead to Spring/Summer 2014, four themes emerge:
MINIMALIST REFINEMENT (Classic) is defined by sculptural silhouettes trimmed with crystal in monochrome shades, including the new Light Silk. (see post here)
The earthiness of FORCE OF NATURE (Romantic) is captured in vibrant, organic fabrics, using colors such as new Crystal Rose Gold. (see post here)
POETIC RADIANCE (Progressive) radiates adventure, technology, and poetry in high-tech metallic and pearly synthetics.
MYTHICAL ALLURE (Glamour) exudes ethereal beauty in sensual, opulent materials.
Here is a closer look at the MYTHICAL ALLURE flags in the John Bead Swarovski Cafe.
Tear drop shapes conjure up images of water droplets – fluid and random.
Classic yet elegant cuts and shapes combine to highlight a new form of glamour.
Smaller elements and wave motifs are woven into netting to offer aquatic inspiration.
Iridescent blue tones are offset by golden pearl tones to offer a modern mineral story.
Natural shapes help to create an outdoor oceanic feel.
I hope this inspires you in your crafting endeavours! You can see our entire line of Swarovski crystals here.
