The Illusion collection, which uses the finest Swarovski crystals and is designed by Chris Bangle for Swarovski’s Designer Edition Series, has already been introduced to the public, set in stunning crystal jewelry pieces created by three legends of the world of jewelry design. Italian Andrea Marazzini presented a sinuously curved setting for his necklace; Frenchman Philippe Ferrandis opted for a sleekly futuristic look for his jewelry set; and Spanish jewelry brand UNOde50 chose deceptive simplicity for a necklace and bracelet.
Each piece from Swarovski’s Illusion collection draws attention to the geometry of Bangle’s uniquely unconventional cuts. Both evocative and dimension defying, the third dimension is compressed along its axis, leaving behind a 2.5D feel in a crystal that still manages to retain volume. The result is a trio of crystals that exude both space and dimension, even while appearing intrinsically flat.
