Jenny Clark, head of colour, WGSN ( a trend forecasting company), says the season’s shades are “driven by a desire to be uplifted and energized while staying grounded and balanced.” The resulting top five colours “will either ground or entice us with their delicious and textural charm.” The essential Spring 2022 hues are an electrifying pink, a yellowish orange, a calming blue, a plant-based green and a creamy shade of butter.
The following colours were mentioned for 2022 during the New York Fashion week: sweet pale pastels shades, a vibrant yellow, a hot pink, a fiery red, and deep purple and tranquil hues. I love the beauty, boldness, colour and fragrance of flowers and named my collections after them. I intend to bring these attributes and colours to my collections while also considering the colour trend for 2022.
My Marigold collection was inspired by sunny summer days. These pieces are lovely to wear with a pair of jeans and a t-shirt, but also pretty enough to wear with evening attire. My colour palette includes the orange and yellow shades from the marigold flower, which I love for their brightness and contrast. The blue shades offer a nice contrast to the coloured pieces. Gold is used for a solid contrast against both.
I designed the Marigold collection for the holiday season, but it can be worn all year. I wanted to create pieces that were simple and easy to wear. I am not into ‘wearing fussy jewellery.’ I love bold, colourful bracelets that have a bit of bling-bling. The Summer collection is just that – colourful, bright and fun. It is also light enough to wear during the hot summer months and has a sparkle.
To summarise the collection, I want to make jewellery that brings a smile to people’s faces and makes them feel wonderful and happy. I hope my designs capture the hearts of people from all walks of life and are wearable.
