Show Media is pleased to share with you the autumn/winter 2013 issue of Salt magazine, created for Swarovski, exploring the brand’s world of crystal and latest collaborations with inspirational designers and artists in fashion, jewellery, art and design.
This dramatic edition looks at the 1,700 crystal-encrusted costumes created for this year’s Oz the Great and Powerful blockbuster and Swarovski’s collaboration with Vrettos Vrettakos on the jaw-dropping outfits for Beyoncé’s Mrs Carter tour and Academy Award-winning costume designer Milena Canonero tells Salt why ‘Swarovski is one of cinema’s great back-room secrets’. Meanwhile, we round up the hottest looks on the red carpet, and explore why customers are hungrier than ever for trends worn by celebrities.
Discover how designers across the globe are taking their work to new heights with dazzling crystals from Swarovski, from Prabal Gurung’s autumn/winter collection inspired by Gurkha army uniforms to singer and actress Zoë Kravitz’s bohemian-style jewellery. We head to the quarry where Michelangelo sourced the marble for his sculptures, which provided the perfect backdrop for photographer Tomas Falmer to shoot the cutting-edge designs of the Swarovski Collective’s 2013/14 collections. Elsewhere, new talent is fostered with the announcement of the recipient of the Swarovski Scholarship to study at the prestigious Parsons The New School for Design in New York, while the brand continues its philanthropic focus with the creation of the Swarovski Foundation.
