Atelier Swarovski by Maison Martin Margiela: Crystalactite Collection

Atelier Swarovski by Maison Martin Margiela

Most jewelers try to design something original using the same old techniques they have always worked with, but Atelier Swarovski and Maison Martin Margiela know that to be truly innovative, you have to break the mold. To create their stalactite-inspired Crystalactite collection, the team fused crystal with a matte white resin base before cutting the Swarovski, completely bypassing the need for glue. The results are out of this world. These pieces look like they came from Superman’s Fortress of Solitude! And while they were featured in Margiela’s always avant-garde Haute Couture show, they’re more than wearable for us mere mortals. Though you won’t be able to fly under the radar like Clark Kent, if you’re stepping out in ice like this, I have a feeling you’re not afraid to stand out. Brooch ($1,900), ring ($1,350), cuff ($2,395), and pendant ($1,775) available for pre-order at Ron Robinson.
