Vision Ships

(In place of the Swarovski 'Runway Rocks' video, which can be found HERE.)

The cream of the progressive design crop were on show in London this week, as part of Coutts Londong Jewellery Week as Swarovski enlisted 16 designers to create a catwalk aesthetic for their jewels. Including Hussein Chalayan, who sends our retinas off to the dysfunction dungeon with his piece capable of lush LED beam refraction, as well as lesser knowns such as Collado Garcia and Manish Arora who break the bank with bedazzled bodysuits, the show is living proof that consistency is the paste jewel which only weak men cherish (1), but Swarovski is the crystal skull.
