Swarovski Crystal has more than 100 years of history and is renowned for its quality and distinction, hence the fact, that Swarovski Collective selects a group of designers every show season to collaborate with, must be the greatest honour. The carefully selected talents who are chosen based on ‘cutting edge talent and ability to demonstrate exquisite craftsmanship with crystal’. To the existing list of designers consisting of Mary Katrantzou, Prabal Gurung, Giles and Rodarte the following ones will join: Alexis Mabille, Sister by Sibling and Michael van der Ham for the very first time. The initiative most of all aims to support both emerging and established designers in exploring craftsmanship and heritage. As it’s explained on Vogue, ‘As the members of the collective, each designer receives financial support towards the production of their show, as well as free reign to experiment with Swarovski crystals.’ It looks like we are looking ahead to a glamorous season, because nothing sparkles as bright as a crystal.

Taking inspiration from the 18th century, the new Marie Antoinette’s wardrobe is what Mabille recalled, in which the attributes of royalty, elegance and luxury played the leading role, and was strengthen by the twist as the models were styled with silver slicked back French braids. Lace frills and rich strong forms of sweetness dominated throughout the collection, which consistently showcased a new form of couture, or more precisely candy-couture. Tell us whether it is sweet enough for you?!

Die Mädchen beim französischen Designer Alexis Mabille waren in Strudeln aus schwerelosem, gefaltetem und gefranstem Organza, Spitze in Nude, Kaskaden aus Blumen, Sträuße aus Origami Rosen und viel Netz gehüllt, was das romantische Element in der Kollektion mit einem Hauch ‘barocker Übertreibung’ hervorrief.
