Lost at Sea Collection by sljdesigns

Lost at Sea Collection available at https://folksy.com/shops/sljdesigns

One of my most recent and favourite collections is Lost at Sea. It is a mixed media collection, with the feature piece being a resin block that is set with silver. The block is totally one of a kind and quite frankly and accidental make. I was surprised when the block was released from the mold to see a seascape facing me. This was the inspiration for the entire collection.

Although the collection is mainly silver, there are also elements of copper and a necklace that is set with a beautiful Lapis Lazuli stone.

Apparently my inspiration was hit by good timing as according to Vogue Magazine, one of the key fashion trends for 2015 is going to Nautical. Oversized coats and outfits that give a subtle nod to sailor uniforms are going to be key. Glowing, barely there makeup is also on the up and up and plaits are here to stay for another season.

Harpers Bazaar is going one step further and suggests that colour blocking as used in yachting flags is going to be big this year, using colour combinations that  are striking.

How do you think the trend wil be worn this season? Will you be taking part or do you favour one of the other key trends of the season?
