Sub­lime Na­ture Trends

Solitaire - - PLATINUM TRENDS -

Sub­lime Na­ture cel­e­brates the vis­ual en­ergy and lush ap­peal of wildlife, look­ing at how plant life in­forms shape and sur­face. Cou­ture-like cre­ations bor­row fluid forms and em­bel­lish­ments from flow­ers and trop­i­cal fo­liage. Na­ture is al­lur­ing and adopt­ing spir­i­tual, en­ter­tain­ing and ironic tones de­fines Sub­lime Na­ture. Tra­di­tional ideas on na­ture, ecol­ogy and sus­tain­abil­ity are given an over­haul as na­ture tells us it is part of tech­nol­ogy, de­sign and youth cul­ture. Na­ture is even sexy as dark, trop­i­cal botan­i­cals in­creas­ingly make their way into fashion ed­i­to­ri­als. Emer­gence of con­tem­po­rary na­ture is seen styling with mixes of un­usual flo­ral mo­tifs to cre­ate a feast of nat­u­ral colours, shapes, and tex­tures, while tap­ping into the in­nate beauty of nat­u­ral forms with an un­usual en­ergy . The fashion quo­tient is driven by a rich com­bi­na­tion of trop­i­cal prints mixed with dark tones for men and del­i­cate free form petals with ro­man­tic fil­i­grees in sub­tle tones in flow­ing fab­rics for women

The key aes­thetic de­sign di­rec­tions in­spir­ing this trend are:

• Emo­tional

• Sen­sual

• Alive

• Holis­tic

• En­velop­ing love

• In­spired by the shape of na­ture

De­sign hooks adapted from the Trend – Sub­lime Na­ture

• Mod­ern Flo­rals – Mir­rors com­plex multi-di­men­sional struc­tures and re­flect and dis­tort na­ture in a good way. Highly pol­ished plat­inum sur­faces re­flect, dis­tort and com­bine with nat­u­ral forms. Unique ver­sions of botan­i­cals like ‘plant fic­tions’ of­fer al­ter­na­tive flo­ral ideas with or­ganic shapes, molten curves, and na­ture-gen­er­ated form. • Dra­matic Na­ture -- Ex­plores the space be­tween na­ture and tech­nol­ogy with big, dra­matic flo­rals that play with pro­por­tional ex­pec­ta­tions.

• Cool Plants – Jew­ellery de­signs in bold forms, quirky, ex­pres­sive, ec­cen­tric and tex­tu­ral shapes – much like what is hap­pen­ing in print and pat­tern.

• En­twined - Draw in­spi­ra­tion from liv­ing na­ture, with plant­like ten­drils, vines and roots en­velop­ing sur­faces.

• Ten­drils - Sur­faces also come alive with ten­drils - curled rib­bons of plat­inum co­coon­ing or wrap­ping them­selves into a web of fine roots cre­at­ing a nat­u­ral, em­bossed tex­ture.

• Gar­lands - Frag­ile and fem­i­nine gar­lands giv­ing an ap­pear­ance of al­most real flo­rals made in plat­inum.
