Space Flower by Fredrikson Stallard
Patrik Fredrikson and Ian Stallard have been working together since 1995 and have gone on to win international known for their amazing avant-garde light designs. Their first jewelry collection for Atelier Swarovski, titled Space Flower, uses just on crystal poised at the center of polished reflective metal discs to create bold statement pieces. The domes project the crystal's colors that change with every movement.
Bolster by Christopher Kane
Christopher Kane's iconic crystal mesh collection has been reworked in seasonal colors of fern green, dark indigo and crystal bronze. In addition to the classic pieces, new styles such as a twist necklace and thinner bolster necklaces add variety to the collection. Each piece is super-light weight and extremely versatile.
Shadow by Zaldy
Zaldy, a new talent to the fashion and music world, is known for his collaborations on Gwen Stefani's L.A.M.B. line and more recently his costume creations for Lady Gaga and Michael Jackson. Reinterpreting pieces from his Spring/Summer 2012 collaboration with Swarovski, Zaldy introduces new styles and color palettes into his Shadow collection, including luminous green on gold and crystal blue on dynamic geometric shapes.
RockCraters by Arik Levy
Designer Arik Levy dabbles in multiple creative fields such as art, photography and filmmaking just to name a few. His RockCraters collection which debuted in Autumn/Winter 2011, features highly polished metal structures reminiscent of rocks that are broken open to expose beautiful crystals inside. The craters contain thousands of crystal chaton in brilliant shades of purple, pink, blue and gold, which illuminates the structured form that surrounds them.
