All that glitters
Wrap your wrists in something new: crystals, chains, studs and spikes remixed for the season
While past Swarovski collections have drawn inspiration from the architecture in Paris and the laid-back glamour of Los Angeles, the soul of Swarovski’s latest Autumn Winter ’17 collection called Urban Fantasy lies within the dynamism and buzzing energy of city life. “From morning till night, 24/7, the city breathes and vibrates, and brings to life a creative energy that I translated into jewellery designs,” creative director Nathalie Colins explains. The result is a vibrant collection of modern geometric lines inspired by skyscrapers, high-shine metallic pieces reflective of bright city lights and neon-hued, emoji-inspired Humorist pendants synonymous with urban gaming and virtual communication.
But it’s the addition of their new Remix line that has us earmarking our favourite pieces. “The Remix collection is a shining example of how Swarovski jewellery is for each and every woman. This game-changing collection invites us to express our own style, personality and attitude,” says Colins. Single bracelet-length pieces with magnetic clasps can be mixed and matched with other strands to create personalised chokers, anklets, headbands or strand necklaces for every style and occasion.
There are four themes to choose from. Romantics will love the long blush Remix strands mixed with heart and emoji motifs which include the four leaf clover, evil eye and Hamsa hand symbols. Women who prefer a classic aesthetic will appreciate the crystal pearls done up in elegant grey and wintry white. If you’re more of a rocker chick, the Rock Chic collection will add some edge to your look with white and black crystals, spikes and spheres. Or dial up the glam with chic Swarovski pearls and shimmery pavé crystals from the Glam collection for evening cocktails. With these cool crystal sparklers on offer, who cares about that old pot of gold?
