The autumn/winter fashion for 2022/23 is well and truly hitting the high streets and the colour experts at the Pantone Colour Institute have provided a fascinating analysis of the trends we will all be wearing as the colder weather sets in. We at Bluestreak crystals wish to keep our customers up to date with the trending colours so that when you purchase your Preciosa Crystals you can be confident in your selection.
There is an interesting clash of themes that is being expressed across the winter catwalks; suggesting we all collectively long for both soothing comfort and bold expression as we embrace the freedoms regained in the wake of the pandemic.
The two main colour camps couldn’t be more different from each other, so it’s easy to spot which aesthetics play into either trend. For those seeking the soft comforting shades, these are creams, earthy greens, warm browns and mild greys. In the words of Pantone these colours are referred to as: Artic Wolf, Autumn Blonde, Loden Frost, Martini Olive, Caramel Café, Polar Night and Chiselled Stone. These colours and their names all imply a grounding return to nature.
Translated into crystal embellishments, these colours can be picked out from across the Preciosa Crystal Colour Chart. Preciosa Pearls are perfect for complimenting the creams and pale greys, while the greens can be matched with the likes of Peridot, Chrysolite and Erinite Preciosa Flat Back Crystals. There is an innate warmth to this colour pallet that also lends itself to Gold Quartz, Light Peach and Vintage Rose.
At the other end of the trend spectrum, their sits our other cultural impulse; the need to get back out there, jumping boldly back into the rich tapestry of life to truly celebrate in style! This is where we find that shocking pink, which has been dominating the fashion industry all summer and it shows no signs of fading. This colour, called Rose Violet by Pantone, dares to be seen by everyone and pairs beautifully with Preciosa Fuchsia, Indian Pink, Rose and Ruby coloured Preciosa Crystals.
Other major colours in this trend are vivid jewel tones including Amazon (green), Midnight (blue), Lava Falls (red) and Samoan Sun (mustard yellow). When looking at the Preciosa Crystals range, Amazon is clearly Emerald, Midnight lends itself to Deep Sea, Lava Falls pairs with Red Velvet and Samoan Sun translates into gold; meaning Aurum, Crystal Sunrise an Golden Honey would all work spectacularly.
