Welcome back to Jewelry Design Basics.

To date, we have been exploring the tools, media and design fundamentals

Recently, we took an in-depth look at the Spring/Summer color trends from the New York and London Fashion Weeks, in  fashion forecasts and trends for 2020.

We can use these forecasts and Jewelry Trends to our advantage when we design our collections and lines this year.

The Pantone Color Institute

For over 20 years, the Pantone Color Institute has influenced product development and purchasing decisions in multiple industries, including fashion, home furnishings, and industrial design.

Each year, color experts at the Pantone, comb the world looking for new color influences and then present their reports to designers around the world.

The colors for Autumn/Winter 2020/2021 New York reflect our interest in desirable seasonal classics imbued with personality.

Colors whose timelessness and versatility convey a level of functionality, and at the same time lend themselves to unique color statements that stand out.

These colors encourage creativity as well as pragmatism, reflecting the changing mindset of today’s consumer, who prioritizes value and longevity over color choices that are here today and gone tomorrow.

“Offering a rich narrative, the color palette for Autumn/Winter 2020/2021 highlights our desire for versatile, timeless color.
Reflecting a ‘less is more’ mindset that is becoming increasingly important to consumers prioritizing value and functionality, our color palette is stripped of excess.
