From our analysis of the contemporary scene, it is possible to identify trajectories, emerging themes that define aesthetic connotations, inspiration for companies and designers in the jewellery and accessory sector.
The digital talk organised by Homi Fashion&Jewels in collaboration with Poli.design presents trends for the next two years in the jewellery sector in terms of aesthetics, shapes, colours, materials and its relationship with the body.
After an introduction to the topic, the two macro-trends will be described: Poptimism and Choiceland. Each trend covers inspirational mood boards, lifestyle boards delineating the target consumer of reference and four micro-trends. Lastly, the talk includes a moment of discussion with guests, professionals and experts in the sector, who will tell their point of view, offering a direct opinion on the contemporary landscape.
This session will be of interest to designers, companies and professionals working in the jewellery sector.
