It’s all about that bling!
Cities of contrasts and excitement act as the inspiration for SWAROVSKI’s Fall/Winter 2017/18 Urban Fantasy Collection. For Fall, contemporary architecture weaves into organic lines that are accented by soft neutral shades and soothing blues and greens. Digital tints, pixel patterns, and metallic silver tones turn into high-shine pieces in the Winter Collection, while the Holiday Collection dials up the glamour with an elegant focus on gold, emerald, and silver tones. Swarovski’s effortless style has also taken an innovative new turn with the game-changing Remix Collection featuring invisible magnetic closures. Available at Swarovski outlets in Siam Paragon, Gaysorn Village, and most Central Group department stores, or visit the main Swarovski Shop Silom boutique (2F, Silom Complex Building).
