A collaboration between Schiaparelli & Swarovski

Schiaparelli introduces the Crystal² dress as part of its Fall/Winter 2017-18 Haute Couture collection.


Starting in the mid-1930s, Elsa Schiaparelli was one of the first designers to ever use Swarovski crystals in her Haute Couture embroideries. Today, Swarovski and Schiaparelli collaborate on a special project combining Haute Couture savoir-faire and a creative vision where crystal becomes as functional as it is decorative.

The Crystal² dress shows crystals on crystals. For the very first time since the creation of Swarovski’s Crystal Fine Mesh, it is embellished with a 3D crystal embroidery.

Inspired by Sophie Taeuber-Arp’s geometrical works, Schiaparelli design director Bertrand Guyon created a dress cut in a hand-made patchwork of Swarovski Crystal Fine Mesh embroidered with clusters of multi-coloured crystals. The graphic composition plays rectangle of pavé crystals in white, yellow and pink shades of gold to reveal an iridescent dress of over 4.7 million facets reflecting light.
