They've teamed up with leading fashion designer Jean Paul Gaultier to bring you some of the most innovative and unique crystal pieces for the season. Swarovski, already known for its flawless crystal components, does not need to improve upon the perfection of crystal. With this collection, rather, Swarovski has turned the imperfect into something to celebrate and admire. From unique new shapes and enchanting colors to fun beads you can incorporate into many different designs, take a look at our sneak peek of Swarovski's Innovations for Fall/Winter 2016/2017.
Renowned designer Jean Paul Gaultier has teamed up with Swarovski to add new life to crystal components. This collection, named after the German word for "broken" adds a distinct touch of imperfection to the flawless crystal Swarovski is known for. This collection of crystal components presents a technological innovation that deliberately breaks with convention, allowing designers to discover the beauty of imperfection. This collection offers two pendants and three fancy stones that riff on irregular forms and celebrate the appeal of being different and unpredictable
The Kaputt shape is a wonderful blend of jagged edges and smooth, sparkling crystal. This pendant will dangle from your designs in a unique and unforgettable display of style. It's perfect for asymmetrical styles and more classic projects alike.
The classic oval shape becomes something new in the Kaputt Oval. Jagged facets in the surface of the crystal create the look of a cracked and splintered mirror, which combines the perfection of crystal with the imperfect look of broken glass. This shape is available as a fancy stone and pendant.
The Kaputt Baguette creates an effortless marriage between the graceful column shape of the baguette and the shattered look of imperfect facets. Another beautiful piece in the Kaputt collection, named after the German word for "broken," the baguette is sure to have everyone taking a second look at your creations.
Crystal Light Chrome brings the sleek shine of metal to crystal components. This bright silver effect will gleam and glint in any project. It's a wonderful way to add modern style to designs thanks to its brilliant look. The cool silver shade is also versatile, so it can be paired with many different color palettes. Make sure this one-of-a-kind look ends up in your designs!
Designed by Jean Paul Gaultier, this mesmerizing color (pronounced skar-uh-bee-uhs) is somewhere between the hypnotic, otherworldly shimmer of the scarab and the bright green of tarnished copper. Each piece features a green, blue and purple metallic luster. A scintillating shade of green combines with a mythological shimmer to create bright and shadowy facets on a stunningly graphic surface. The beetle-like glow of this effect is sure to amaze!
The new Swarovski raindrop shape is a truly elegant and versatile look. The tapering drop shape is sure to make a statement in designs. With timeless facets covering the surface, this piece will sparkle in any project. Add this lovely new shape to designs with fancy stones and pendants in various sizes.
The classic rondelle shape is even more captivating when captured in high-quality crystal. These beads are a great option for use as spacers. The faceted surface will glint and gleam between beads of any size, shape and color, adding just the right touch of glamour.
The pendulum bead is the perfect way to make a dramatic statement in your designs. This rectangular bead features a stringing hole drilled through one side, so the other end of the rectangle will dangle beautifully in designs. Use it as a focal or a string a few between small beads to create a unique fringe look. No one will forget this bead when you use it in designs.
