A fear of the future shows no signs of abating any time soon, particularly for the beleaguered Millennials. As the desire to carve a new identity becomes key, the upending of traditional formats remains high on their priority list. A new, individualized format is being honored in urban settings with “heritage” re-issued in various designs to make retro modern.
Materials with substantial weight pull into focus the desire for long-lasting appeal in designs to combat fast-fashion. Comforting nostalgia, in the use of heritage materials, is given a fresh update with new silhouettes and layering options. Tailoring is reinvented, and colors in comforting, muted mid-tones – offset with pops of Padparadscha and Crystal Azure Blue take the spotlight to offer a freshness to authentically re-imagined pieces.
A renewed appreciation for vintage items highlights the creation of unique jewelry pieces with sophisticated, encrusted surfaces in crystal and pearl cluster designs appearing in brooches and modern settings for a younger consumer. As interior selfies become important, bold interior accessories experience a revival in an eclectic mash-up of directions. The extreme lo-fi meets high style direction, showcases the on-going desire for individualization across all segments - from jewelry through accessories to packaging and electronics.
