About this title


SWAROVSKI: CELEBRATING A HISTORY OF COLLABORATIONS IN FASHION, JEWELRY, PERFORMANCE, AND DESIGN is the history of the world-renowned crystal brand. For over 120 years, Swarovski crystals have had a multifaceted significance, used as a creative ingredient by coveted brands around the world. The extraordinary objects documented in the book range from Michael Jackson’s crystallized glove to elaborate pieces for fashion houses such as Christian Dior, Chanel, Prada and Alexander McQueen, who continuously embellish their collections with Swarovski crystals each season. Other highlights include original crystal chandelier lighting commissions for The Metropolitan Opera House in New York, and large-scale installations by top designers and architects Zaha Hadid, Ron Arad and Yves Béhar.
This publication presents Swarovski’s extraordinary contributions to the creative industries, which include the creation of the innovative Aurora Borealis stone and the dazzling Oscars Curtain. The book also presents the Swarovski Collective, a program established under the leadership of Nadja Swarovski to support emerging and established fashion designers, as well as exclusive essays by influential fashion icons, designers and artists. Showcasing never-before-published contemporary and archival photographs, this beautiful volume tells for the first time the illustrious tale of Swarovski's heritage and the brand's cutting-edge presence today.
