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.

Swarovski Kristall hat eine mehr als 100-jährige Geschichte und ist bekannt für ihre Qualität und ihren Namen, somit ist der Fakt, dass Swarovski Collective jede Saison eine Reihe von Designern auswählt, um mit ihnen zusammenzuarbeiten, die größte Ehre. (more…)


Prabal Gurung‘s design philosophy evolves around modern luxury and his great sense of glamour. The Singapore-born, New York-based designer concentrates his creativeness on constant innovation and high quality, by dedicating his pieces to the strong, powerful women. His latest collection – to prove his rightfulness – was influenced by the empowerment of women. The military’s focus on developing armor fit for a woman’s figure addresses a matter of equal opportunity and allows women to move forward in their roles while serving their country. The collection suggests strong but clean silhouettes, contrasting colours and textures, while striving for great effeminacy. What caught my attention for the very first sight was the delicate choice of fabrics such as metallic imperial brocade, crepe back satin, cotton twill, ivory baroque printed silk charmeuse or the hand-embroidered fabric with Swarovski elements. Gurung just served up some proper contemporary glam, don’t you think?
