Viktor & Rolf team up with Swarovski
Atelier Swarovski has tapped Dutch duo Viktor & Rolf to design a fall collection.
Dutch design duo Viktor & Rolf have created two new jewelry collections for Austrian brand Swarovski, entitled ‘Velvet Rock’ and ‘Frozen Crystal’.
Unveiled during their show last week in Paris, ‘Velvet Rock’ does exactly what it says on the tin – features Swarovski’s famous stones coated with flock.
It’s something of a first, a textural experimentation playing with sparkling crystal and velvet which is also a nod to Viktor & Rolf’s new Paris flagship (which is covered in gray felt).
The line features earrings, cuffs, chokers and rings which were apparently inspired by the style of American indie singer Joan As Police Woman.
“You will need a sense of humor and irony” to wear it Horsting told WWD.
