On November 7, 2023, the Swarovski Flagship Store will host the global launch of their collaborative creation – Swarovski x SKIMS. Simultaneously, the collection will make its digital debut on skims.com, inviting fashion enthusiasts worldwide to indulge in a world of shimmer and style.
The brainchild of Giovanna Engelbert, Creative Director at Swarovski, and Kim Kardashian, Co-Founder & Creative Director of SKIMS, this collaboration fuses the exuberant opulence of Swarovski crystals with the innovative fabrics synonymous with SKIMS. “It’s been a dream since I joined Swarovski to create a first-ever collaboration with SKIMS that furthers the art of self-expression,” enthuses Giovanna Engelbert. “Our collection is a celebration of the body, and of strong, independent women who value their individuality and embrace life with confidence and style.”
Kim Kardashian echoes this sentiment, highlighting the collection’s dreamy allure. “For this collaboration, we really wanted to celebrate individual creativity and bring more glamour into getting dressed every day,” she says. “The pieces are so dreamy, and we loved integrating the iconic crystal cuts into my favorite SKIMS pieces. We can’t wait for everyone to love Swarovski x SKIMS as much as I do.’’
The collection, as captured through the lens of renowned photographer Mert Alas and the (controversial) artist Vanessa Beecroft exudes a sense of glamour and artistry while celebrating diversity and confidence. Swarovski x SKIMS boasts crystal body jewelry that can be styled in myriad ways, alongside crystallized intimates, bodysuits, and dresses.
The crystal body jewelry was inspired by the Millenia jewelry collection, each piece is meticulously handcrafted, offering a unique beauty that complements the wearer’s radiance. These pieces can be layered over or under garments, styled with matching chokers, necklaces, and bracelets for a showstopping impact.
In addition to the jewelry, the ready-to-wear line showcases crystal-embellished silhouettes designed for every occasion. Crafted with SKIMS’ signature fabrics that effortlessly mold to the body, these empowering pieces are not only about style but also about comfort. Each garment, adorned with glittering crystals, emanates glamour and confidence.
Swarovski, founded in 1895 in Austria, has been a trailblazer in the world of fashion for over a century. SKIMS, co-founded by Kim Kardashian and Jens Grede in 2019, has revolutionized the fashion industry with its solutions-oriented approach.
