With a shared passion for excellence and distinction, Swarovski and Marcolin, deliver a creative, sophisticated collection of sunglasses for Spring/Summer 2013.
Nathalie Colin, Creative Director at Swarovski states, “My wish for this season was to combine the optimistic colors of the ‘Tropical Paradise’ jewelry collection with the inspiration of the sunwear collection. This season is marked by extravagance and audacity, with highly decorative frames, splashed with color, and enriched by the glamour of gold”.
Basics appear alongside bolder designs, with a distinct Swarovski semblance. The collection reveals several iconic elements of Swarovski’s identity on the arms, frames and lenses. For the first time, the exclusive Pointiage® technique adorns certain pieces in the collection with subtle gradations and ultimate brilliance. The collection naturally features faceting, synonymous with Swarovski, the delicate Swanflower® motif and of course, crystal. Timeless or fashionable, simplistic or sophisticated, these 12 new lines offer accessorizing possibilities for your every desire. Just as with fashion, these easy to wear and easy to match styles are available in a variety of shapes to perfectly fit the shape of your face. Elegant and feminine, the “Ciara” model plays on volume and rounded lines, while “Cutie” favors simplicity and modernity with its slender metal frame adorned with pastel crystals.
“Chance” reinterprets the aviator shape, with a geometric aesthetic that features Swarovski’s distinct faceting technique, while the “Cleo” model, with a more rectangular design and greater coverage, uses baguette-cut crystals to adorn the arms. Bold and full of character, “Capri” presents a square frame, entirely faceted and decorated with Crystal Rocks; an exclusive material with a graphic, mineral look. For a dash of color, “Cosmopolitan” shines in vibrant fuchsia, set off by fine arms featuring the chain design.
Among the bolder frames, “Charlie” and “Carma” stand out for their sophistication. Large in size and coverage, these models combine facets and crystals applied by hand using the Pointiage® technique, with bold arms to provide a hint of glamour. “Coquette” has the feel of jewelry, with its lenses surrounded by pavé crystals. With great attention to detail and a touch of sparkle, “Chic” offers perfect harmony between classic forms and the skilful use of crystal.
With this new collection of sunglasses, Swarovski and Marcolin have created an array of eye-catching designs to protect us from the sun in style.
