We will showcase the Autumn/Winter 2016 trends on the IJL 2015 Catwalk, with inspiration taken from the catwalks and our trend partner Adorn Insight.
The Catwalk will talk place at 10.30, 1.30 and 3.30 everyday.
Imagine equal parts of Victorian governess; vampish goth and punk, with pieces featuring overlapping and articulated sections constructed from leather, blackened metals and darkened crystals, and components which have a ‘hardware feel’, such as buckles, rivets, bolts and chains.
It’s all about movement and swing as the 1970’s look is inspiring the season trends! Statement pieces about with segmented elements, curtains of fine gauge chain, molten-look metals and silhouettes. Gems look best in chunky or rough cuts and imperfections such as bands and inclusions add visual appeal.
Adopt hard-edged sensibility, geometric shapes, colour blocking and cut outs. Think the highly commercial, timelessly chic orb. Add a fresh touch to this much loved icon by mixing and matching sizes, combining different colours, graduating sizes or arranging in random clusters.
Big, bold blooms burst in a riot of colour, and texture with acid green orchids and supersized irises. Create an impression of volume, with gently rippling edges and undulating surfaces, perfect for leaf and petal-based looks. Explore colour in the form of pave gemstones in graduated hues, enamel embellishment, mixed golds and even colourful titanium flourishes.
Have fun with vintage-inspired looks in an explosion of gem encrusted dangles, drops and decorative motifs. Craft based techniques such as filigree, granulation as well as richly hued gemstones in unusual settings and arrangements add wow factor to classic silhouettes. Add a contemporary flourish by playing with scale.
