Swarovski: Fashion, Performance, Jewelry and Design
Like Rizzoli’s highly successful Louis Vuitton: Art, Fashion, Architecture, Swarovski explores the exceptional collaborations of the Swarovski brand with major fashion, design, jewelry, and film innovators, making Swarovski unlike any other volume on the company’s history. In celebration of the 120th anniversary of Swarovski’s founding, Swarovski focuses on four key elements: fashion, jewelry, design, and film–from Audrey Hepburn’s tiara in Breakfast at Tiffany’s to custom garments for Coco Chanel, to one-of-a-kind crystal designs for designers and celebrities.
