Fashion Trends 2017

Leave a comment

Greenery - color of the year 2017 greenIt seems that this year is all about green, because it is the selected Pantone color of the year, and also blues in various tones, and, continuing presence of pink (oh I love that!). Artistic patterns are in, as well as geometric, so anything using lots of color variation and random pattern, go for it! I have recently made enameled copper earrings that are “painterly” meaning mixing colors while the enamel is still hot. Wonderful effects can be achieved this way! Also, the trend is towards handmade, instead of diy – interior designers are choosing artisan created items that take skill to make. That’s awesome news for us artisan jewelry makers, too! Anyway, here are some commentary from the fashion gurus.

Pink - another color for the year 2017

IN: “There was an artistically inspired theme across the runways,” says Kate Foley, contributing fashion director of Vestiaire Collective. “From Roksanda and Céline to J.W.Anderson, Proenza Schouler, Marni, Valentino, and many other brands, whether directly inspired by a particular artist’s work, painterly prints, or patterns, strong art references will be here to stay in 2017.”

Trends for 2017 - geometric prints colorful

Designer and stylist Josiah Chua, 28, says the high-end Italian label has been leading the way with the vintage look for the past few seasons and the sentimental style does not appear to be fading.

“Even accessories such as huge rings and necklaces will be on trend too. It is about 1990s fashion as well – cartoon motifs and pop and retro prints.”

Vibrant, geometric prints. Pink, pink pink!

BRIGHT GREEN

Elle says about home decor:

For years, the world has been obsessed with DIYs pulled from Pinterest, Instagram and, of course, Etsy, but designers are now looking toward items that are more “artisan” than “quick and easy”. You’ll see craftsmanship and materials that require you to have a high level of skill to work with them emerge,”. “You’ll see the return of glass blowing, porcelain and even amazing woodworking — not just raw big chunks of recycled wood.
