SECRET TREASURES & JOURNEYS: SWAROVSKI'S FALL WINTER 2013-14 COLLECTION


Thousands of years of treasures, thousands of years of journeys…
 culminate into a most exquisite mix of contemporary design, techniques and cultures.

This is what Creative Director Nathalie Colin sought to bring to the FW 13-14 collection and this is what she delivered.

Our journey begins with the Middle Kingdom among scents of incense in high mountain monasteries and soft traditional sounds with no other than ying and yang, black and white, shadow and light, discrete luxury and exuberance. 

SWAROVSKI sought to bring to this collection incredible new techniques and mixes of mesh, microfibers, sparkle.

Swarovski China Inspired Ring

With dazzling cuffs, bracelets and neck pieces, manyhand-set with a pavé of glacier white crystals of different shapes that seem to be reflecting the blue crisp sky through a shallow Himalayan stream, we can already feel the brisk, dry breeze brush our faces, as if facing the glaciers of the Himalayas. 

The sophistication, the hours of artisan work, the sleek soft feel to the skin, the uniqueness of the pieces makes our hearts literally skip a beat.  Adorning these pieces, the woman will most surely be admired for her sophistication, her uniqueness, her striking beauty.

So rare are some pieces, with no one piece identical to theother, Nathalie Colin created two exclusive editions limited to China only… which will leave many scrambling to make a certain journey..

Crossing over the Himalayas, we now arrive in India, where warmth greets us with scents of musk, music from the deep valleys and gentle plateaus, rich, welcoming colors, sensuality.

Vanity by Celebrity Designer Shourouk


The masterpiece, Vanity, designed by celebrity designer Shourouk marries her penchant for exploring new frontiers with SWAROVSKI ’s continuous quest for innovation.


Imposing and mounted on cord, this piece, mixed with discrete amber crystals, imparts sophistication and depending on the circumstance and attire, can either make the owner seem regal or sensual, day, evening or night.

Medieval Republic of Venice inspired VERMEIL CUFF

Finally, our journey brings usto our final destination, the Republic of Venice at a time where Medieval Europe is gradually turning into Renaissance. Cold winter winds sweep thelagoons, creating a soft mist in barren squares and narrow walk ways, where the Republic’s elite saunter to their secret and masked balls. It’s a mysteriousperiod, characterized by dark opulence, yet contemporary sophistication.

Medieval Republic of Venice inspired VERMEIL NECKLACE

An absolute favorite is The Vermeil cuff and necklace with its detachable brooch.  

In their centers lie a large cabochon entirely covered with hand-applied crystalstones, discretely surrounded by elegant details of gold. 

Absolutely stunning!
