The New Grandeur

Oversized sleeves, exaggerated shoulders and a mashup of materials, from crystal floral embroidery and latex to satin: numerous designers merged day looks and eveningwear, bringing modern interpretations to timeless silhouettes. London-based Richard Quinn (as seen above) used Swarovski crystals to add a dose of shimmering glamour; dressing up is one of the key trends of the season.

Denim with a Twist

Denim takes center stage this season, as streetwear materials and tailoring come together to evolve our viewpoint on the classic fabrication. Versatile and perfect for many directions, this material leaves room for countless creative interpretations as showcased in this embellished cape design at the Koché show in Paris (as seen above). Swarovski Sew-on Stones meet Flat Backs in geometric motifs to give denim an irresistible new spirit.

Structured Motifs

Designers turned to a slightly darker aesthetic with contrasting crystal elements. Donatella Versace (as seen above) reinterpreted classic patterns such as graphic motifs and animal prints by applying a variety of Swarovski crystal shapes in muted shades to silver shine and sheer, transparent materials for a more tactile dimension.
