Quasi 30.000 di visitatori specializzati nel settore da 85 paesi hanno visitato la fiera Inhorgenta a Monaco di Baviera dal 22 al 25 Febbraio. Un totale di 1.237 espositori hanno presentato le ultime collezioni con un incremento del 9 per cento rispetto all’anno precedente. La mostra è stata in grado di rafforzare ulteriormente la sua internazionalità; un terzo dei visitatori e più della metà degli espositori sono venuti dall’estero per provare o mostrare un lusso abbordabile nei settori della gioielleria, e dell’orologeria. Quest’anno, in occasione della celebrazione del 40esimo anniversario della fiera, è stato aperto un nuovo padiglione chiamato “Trends & Vision”.
As seen at Inhorgenta, a trend, which arose last year and appeared on the catwalks during the spring/summer shows, is catching on in 2013 in the watch and jewelry industry—neon colors
. Those who could not believe their eyes last year, feeling as if they were back in the 1980s, will be surprised. Jewelry, watches, purses or shoes in neon yellow, green, fuchsia, pink, blue, red or orange accent simpler outfits on the one hand, on the other hand wonderfully complement the designer fashion in lively neon colors.
Here are some examples of jewelry designers and vendors living the neon trend at Inhorgenta Munich:
In the new “Trends & Vision” hall B3, Lizas
showed its qudo and Lizas collections, including bracelets in neon colors. At the A. Ruppenthal
booth in hall C1, precious stone chains sparkled in neon green and orange. In hall A2, Studex Europa
presented its new neon collection of stud earrings which are especially designed for ear piercing. The multitude of colors of theTrollbeads
, exhibited by Eulit in hall B2, also presented its fair share of neon colors.
The neon trend was even more apparent with watch manufacturers and vendors:
In hall B3, Pranda & Kroll showed the latest innovations from the Baldessarini
watch collection with accents in neon green. In hall A1,M&M Uhren
presented its Color Blocking Series with watch bands and details in various neon colors contrasting its black stainless steel watchcases. M&M even offers matching rings. The watches from the Marc by Marc Jacobs
series and the multitude of colors of the ice-watch
series presented by albu.con were eye-catching as well.
Combine several pieces of jewelry with a watch. Strands of hair or ombre hair, nail polish, and make-up in neon colors are a perfect match. You’ll find some examples on our “Neon Trend 2013″
pinboard on Pinterest.
In fashion, Oscar de la Renta, Versus as well as Versace, Proenza Schouler, Simone Rochas and Matthew Williamson illustrate how great neon colors can look (some examples can also be found on “Neon Trend 2013″). My absolute favorites: these blue shoes with neon pink heels and neon orange laces.
