Spirit. Luxury. Art. 

Just imagine the romantic Swarovski crystal, fused with the artistic verve from some of the world’s top leading designers, and you would get ATELIER SWAROVSKI’S Autumn/Winter 2013 collection.  

This season, world-renowned product designers Fredrikson Stallard, stellar fashion designer Christopher Kane, multi-disciplinary designer Arik Levy, as well as the all-talented Zaldy, raised a very important question of “Just how many ways can a Swarovski crystal be refashioned?”

Our answer is “Boundless.”

Fredrikson Stallard

One crystal poised at the centre of a polished reflective disc forms the groundwork of Fredrikson Stallard’s first jewelry collection for Atelier Swarovski.

The duo, amplifying the preciseness of the Swarovski crystal through the elegance of a mirror polished dome, works in tiny screens that radiates femininity and contemporary charm.

Dancing between a clever amalgamation of subtlety and boldness, the collection entitled “SPACE FLOWER” is exactly that: mysterious, fun-loving with a dash of timelessness.

Christopher Kane

Keeping to his name, Christopher Kane’s iconic crystal mesh “Bolster” collection is all about drama and novelty.

Reworked in seasonal colourways, new styles such as the twist necklace and thinner bolster necklace introduces a punch and vigor befitting of its namesake.

Colours to note for this season include fern green, dark indigo and crystal bronze.

Zaldy

With a background designing for Gwen Stefani’s L. A..M. B. collection, as well as the likes of Lady Gaga and Michael Jackson, Zaldy’s portfolio is chockfull of big and enviable clients.

Adding onto his impressive resume this time is his Spring/Summer 2012, which has been reinterpreted to give kick to an old idea.

With stones and clay as his inspiration, Zaldy introduce new styles and colourways that were not previously seen before, including the beautiful shades of luminous green and crystal blue, as well as a wide range of dynamic, geometric shapes.

Arik Levy

Multidisciplinary talent Arik Levy may be many things: designer, technician, photographer and filmmaker, but first and foremost he is an artist.

And for this season, his collection “RockCraters” exactly reflects how he rolls, with a collection that reinvents pieces from Levy’s own Autumn/Winter 2011 collection, echoing the highly polished metallic structure of rocks in the natural world.

We particularly love the pink necklaces and silver cuffs that totters just between art and sci-fi, all with a hint of playfulness and attitude. Charming!
