From the BOB Trunk Show: Atelier Swarovski

Swarovski has always been synonymous with crystal jewelry and accessories that are delicate and simple, which aren't big on designs. But did you know that Swarovski has a more upmarket line geared towards high fashion?

Photobucket Little known to most people including Fir and myself, this line, aptly named Atelier Swarovski, collaborates with renowned designers such as Prabal Gurung, Proenza Schouler, Rodarte, Karl Lagerfeld, Viktor & Rolf, Jonathan Saunders, Christopher Kane and most recently Mark Fast. Atelier Swarovski remains true to the brand by encouraging designers to explore the different possibilities of using crystals. As such, every collection features innovative and cutting edge designs, with almost limited edition pieces, since the designer for the Atelier line gets renewed every season.

Fir and I were lucky enough to preview the Atelier Swarovski S/S 2012 collection at the BOB Trunk Show. Big bold statement necklaces and cuffs were featured with the former encrusted with crystals galore and the latter embellished with large crystals.

Fir took a liking to the necklace below, while I took to this gorgeous clutch.

In the saturated market where costume jewelry is abound, its nice to know that there are other options available and Atelier Swarovski is one of them.
