TREND FORECAST ARTFUL EMPATH
Nurturing and emotive, this trend is fueled by the chaos and movement of the past two years, and focuses on home as a concept as well as a place.
This is a feelgood but grounded palette, balancing energetic, fruity brights, like Light Peach and Jonquil, with soothing pastels and mid-tones such as White Opal and Light Sapphire.
TREND FORECAST MINDFUL RESET
This trend champions design ingenuity as a force for positive change and will see more brands “democra-sizing” with personalized products and services that reduce waste.
This palette combines rich darks and jewel tones such as Fuchsia and Tanzanite, which act as fashion and core shades, with mid-tones and artificial brights, like Sapphire and Bermuda Blue, for unexpected accents.
TREND FORECAST PHYGITAL FANCY
The collision of two opposite worlds – the natural and the digital – is reflected in a palette full of contrasts. Swampy darks, such as Nightfall, sit alongside intense brights, like Peridot, and artificial shades, like Vitrail Light.
Otherworldly and immersive designs find mainstream appeal as nature continues to merge with technology, and the line between the real and digital worlds continues to blur.
NEW COLOR MESMERA
Born from recycled electromagnetic waste and a decades-long friendship between two career chemists, Mesmera is the sublime amalgamation of serendipity and science.
As if by magic, Mesmera flickers from purple to green and back again, bewitching the senses with its characteristic metamerism, meaning it appears to the eye as one color though it comprises a different spectral composition.
This mood ring-like shade was developed over several months with the prestigious Czech Academy of Sciences and contains trace amounts of a rare-earth metal called neodymium, causing the crystals to appear differently under natural and synthetic light wavelengths.
NEW COATING GLITTER
An icier, more delicate version of our classic Aurora Borealis (AB) coating, Glitter gives merely a subtle wink of iridescence.
Available exclusively for select colors of our machine-cut Rondelle Beads, this effervescent new coating dazzles without dominating its underlying color in an exquisite balancing act worthy of any couture catwalk or homemade heirloom.
