Designers were uninhibited this season, experimenting with barely there fabrics and cleverly placed Swarovski crystals. Swarovski Collective designers, chosen for their innovative vision, crafted one-of-a-kind pieces with crystal support from the brand. From provocative netting to whimsical embroidery, multiple collections flawlessly incorporated the transparent trend.
Faustine Steinmetz played with negative placement, using the models’ bodies as a focal point and dressing each in a fine sheet of mesh constructed into pants and tops, carefully decorated with striking blue crystals. Skin was in at Anne Sofie Madsen’s SS17 show as well, where the designer flaunted crystal embellished see-through bodycon dresses. A more sweet approach to the trend was achieved at Vivetta with sheer fabrics on feminine ruffled frocks and with fanciful clear patches at Mary Katrantzou.
To get the look at home, incorporate Swarovski accessories into your wardrobe focusing on shine and texture to play off the subtleties of the trend. The shimmering Genius Ring with its linear shapes and interlocking loops of crystal pavé is an instant chic update. To elevate your ensemble further, stack on sparkling Crystaldust Double Bangles for a free-spirit vibe – perfect to match your see-through style. Those in love with luxury can up the ante with Atelier Swarovski’s Nile Detachable Earrings from the Core collection, luminous geometric crystals that can be worn as chandeliers or studs for a versatile look. For a more sophisticated addition to the out-there trend, try the Moselle Strandage complete with Swarovski Crystal Moonlight crystals adorning a palladium-plated chain.
