Swarovski has released the Spring/Summer 2018 Crystal Innovations collection which is aptly named New Perspectives to represent the rapidly changing world in which we seek to redefine ourselves and eradicate the outmoded structures of the past.
This season’s new crystals crosses divides to form the message “We need a new world order.” The Spring/Summer 2018 story is about the need for a new outlook on life and four trends characterize the new perspectives: Gang Star, No Normal, Hacked Nature, and Spell Bound.
Inspired by the hip-hop, sporty, rap culture, the look is expressed in bold gold statement pieces conveying a “don’t mess with me” attitude. In focus come the Skull Flat Backs which are perfect for edgier styles.
Also, the Crystal Iridescent Blue Pearl has been launched in two new tones that reflect the emerging gender-neutral, active-streetwear style fusion.
The focus is on seasonless, genderless clothes as the concept of fashion is stripped back to the essentials. There is a desire for greater kindness in our personal dealings and simplicity in our daily lives. Designs should break conventions, celebrate human imperfection. Representing this are the new Tilted Chatons, Tilted Spikes and the Tilted Dice Fancy Stones which can be used as a pendant. The Square Family’s Pyramid, Square and Base Flat Backs reflect the new design principles of flexibility and modularity, offering ways to break the mould.
We are proud to introduce the Swarovski Innovations S/S2018 collection through our online shop. To see the latest additions and our full catalog of Crystals from Swarovski please see HERE.
