Artist Mondrian is known for the use of shapes to create emblematic paintings. In the fashion and beauty industries, lines and circles go beyond trends and designers. The pattern has its own importance, sometimes playing the lead role and sometimes as the supporting act. The result can be simple or intricate and is conceived with solid single colours or an array of complex mixes and matches, following a certain sequence. The truth is, whichever concept you pick, you’ll be on trend and won’t go unnoticed.
In the beauty world, nail art best applies the concept. Perfect nails with circles, squares, triangles and lines are a way to focus attention to your hands. Some bronzers and blushes also come with geometric shapes and a palette of colours that complement each other when mixed together for best effect. The AW2017 fashion collections show that overlapping geometric patterns are the way to go. Look for correlative or same-colour schemes and have fun putting together your own ‘masterpiece’.
