Fashion Trends Spring/Summer 2010 - Global Fusion
Inspired by the cultures and landscapes of Latin America, Africa and the Middle East, Global Fusion reflects the merging of creative influences throughout the world. Vibrant colors like bright red, violet and green combine with subdued earth tones such as ochre, beige and clay red, evoking the contrast of culture and nature.
When it comes to jewelry, handcrafted components are essential. Unique fashion statements are created by combining elements from diverse cultures. Distinct materials such as metal and wood, natural gemstones and brass and suede with metal links combine to form gorgeous designs as varied as the different landscapes and cultural traditions throughout the world. Hand painted beads, fringe necklaces, hammered hoops, dangling earrings and bangle bracelets will reflect the beauty of merging cultures that each bring a touch of unique beauty.
