Christmas Wishlist – Atelier Swarovski By Viktor & Rolf

“Diamonds are a girl’s best friend!”, Marilyn Monroe used to pout, but Ms Monroe hadn’t discovered the desirability of a glistening Swarovski crystal. The allure of these Austrian natural crystals is known worldwide since 1895, and 2007 saw the creation of Atelier Swarovski, their upscale accessories collection to shine a light on their star product in a way crystals had not been seen before in accessorries or decor pieces. Ever since that launch, they have joined forces with over 50 world renowed designers, in the realms of jewellry, fashion, architecture and design, all following the the flow of the Fashion Weeks. Previous collaborations include Karl Lagerfeld, Christopher Kane and Zaha Hadid,

The latest partner chosen by Atelier Swarovski to express this desire to move past the nomal, to push them out of their comfort zone and elevate the brand to another level? The Dutch avant-garde rebels of fashion, the kings of dark, delicate glamour, Viktor & Rolf. Viktor Horsting en Rolf Snoeren, inspired by their Parisian flagship store completely covered in grey felt, created the Atelier Swarovski by Viktor&Rolf collection. Playing with contrasts and surrealism, and wanting to highlight the crystal in all possible ways, they pervade their touch of unexpected glamour in with the use of jet black stones in both lines of the collection, Frozen Crystals and Velvet Rock. Frozen Crystals, with it’s matt and brilliant crystals placed side by side, or Velvet Rock, where velours forms a softening contrast against the hardness of the stone. I could continue, and very lyrically so, about the eyecatching beauty of some pieces this collection, but I’ll let you be the judge of that:
