BIC Cristal turns 60 and to commemorate this, they have designed a dress using BIC pens and Swarovski crystals.
It took 640 hours to sew all the Bic pens onto the extraordinary garment, which is also covered in 2,000 crystals and is worth around £10,000.
The dress weighs 8lbs – just over half a stone – but, according to designer Annette Carey, it’s completely wearable.
Swarovski Elements have launched their first range of wallpapers, designed in collaboration with British designer Karen Beauchamp.
The collection features Swarovski crystals on a backdrop of foil, layers of printed ink, velvety flock – or an opulent combination of all three, as seen in Feather Palace.
There are nine crystal-embedded wallpapers in the range, with two plain wallpapers to match them.
