Deep navy, and periwinkle pops; blue took a deeply hued turn on the Fall/Winter 2016 Swarovski Collective runways, where collections seen worldwide tuned into a colorful deviation from neutrals, muted hues and blacks. Chosen for their unique point of view and creative talent, Swarovski partners with up and coming designers every season, offering both financial and crystal support. Infused with organic themes, the blues seen throughout designers’ collections combined geometry with spatial suggestion for strong, saturated silhouettes. This season, it’s all about mono-tones —and not black and white, but full on daring gradations of richly hued color.
Translate the trend to your fall accessories; choose pieces which embrace a blue take on traditional shape, such as the Jewel-y by Rosie Assoulin Ring. Take a cue from the pearlescent detailing on Peter Pilotto’s botanic-inspired pieces with the Forward Ring. Add playful shape to your ensembles with the Fun Necklace, hand-set using the Pointiage technique with variating blues. Bring blue to new heights and take a page from Esteban Cortazar’s metallic prints by choosing accessories which play with texture. Whether integrating a statement piece into your favorite looks this fall, or going all-out in monotone, break the rules this season; get into a blue state of mind.
