Bringing you the sparkle scoops with Swarovski CollectiveFriday, February 10 2017
When Rhianna sang ‘Shine bright like a diamond’, I’m pretty sure she was referring to a Swarovski Crystal. These days, you can barely move in a high fashion room without being hit by a glorious succession of dazzling sparkles. Bling a ding-ding! Even minimal mavens, like myself, can’t help but confess their weakness for the shiny stuff.
And not just because diamonds are a girl’s best friend
(Though the modern adage should def say “crystals are a fashionista’s main bae”).
Since its inception, the Swarovski Collective has helped bright young stars from all over the world to explore new ways of incorporating crystal in their designs. The global initiative, which all began when Nadja Swarovski teamed up with visionaries such as Isabella Blow and Alexander McQueen, now fosters the artistic direction of some of the most exciting new labels on the high fashion block. This year, the lineup includes some of my personal favs, such as Creatures of the Wind, Rosie Assoulin and Tome, which could not be more perfect as I will be there, reporting on the ground, checking up on all things sparkle and bringing you the brightest scoops from all four cities. Decked in crystals, naturellement!
So, shine bright tonight
You and I
We’re beautiful, like diamonds in the sky’
