Let’s start the week with a Sea of Sparkle shall we?! That is the name of Swarovski’s Spring Summer 2016 collection, inspired by the sea, the waves and the aquatic flora. In the words of Nathalie Colin, Swarovski’s Creative Director: “The sea is a wholly organic and endless source of beauty and the perfect inspiration for our spring/summer jewelry collection. As well as celebrating the beauty of nature, each piece offers a sophisticated, feminine elegance that is perfect for almost any occasion.”
The new collection’s presentation took place at Athens’ Planetarium where we saw the inspiration film regarding the new collection in the Planetarium screen. Then we saw the jewelry nicely exhibited one by one and then we had the opportunity to try on any jewelry we liked (the fun part)!
The dominant colors of the collection are shades of turquoise, aquamarine and bold pinks. With dramatic hues and shapes emulating aquatic flora, the collection is beautifully daring and brings color and energy to any outfit. The collection also features both bold pieces (like the sea urchin inspired one on top) as well as more wearable ones, like the rose gold necklace I’m wearing, or the pendant featured in my ideal traveling outfit.
I was fascinated with all those rich colors and bold jewelry, but I admit that the rose gold pieces are the ones that stole my heart the most!
What Swarovski style would you choose? Bold colors or timeless elegance?
