In the Winter edition of CIJ Trends & Colours, our annual trends tracker guide, we talked about the top ten trends in ne jewellery for 2011. Since colour is one of the major trends, we continue here with a look at colours of jewellery in relation to the main colour directions in fashion as forecast by Pantone in its Fashion Color Report Fall 2011 as well as the opinions of fashion designers on their must-have fashion item.
“Designers take a painterly approach to Fall 2011 by artfully combining bright colors with staple neutrals, reminiscent of how an artist would construct a stunning work of art,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “Much like a painter’s masterpiece, there is a certain romance to this season’s palette.”
