Vogue Germany’s Crystallized Objects of Desire

Swarovski has been lighting up the pages of the world’s glossy fashion magazines for many years, while Vogue has built up a formidable reputation for stunning, imaginative imagery. But the August 2017 issue of Vogue Germany elevates it to an art form.

The August edition has been published together with a very special 44-page supplement, which is a nothing short of a fantastical, dazzling, visual feast. Influential fashion photographer Tim Walker has applied his extravagant and theatrical vision to creating a treasure trove of highly desirable accessories, each lavishly embellished with Swarovski crystals. Made by world-famous designers with virtuoso skills and artistry, such as Miu Miu, Prada, Lanvin, Longchamp, Bottega Veneta, Jimmy Choo and Karl Lagerfeld, these are items of superbly crafted sophistication.

It is a sumptuous reminder to Vogue Germany’s 1.5 million readers of what the best-dressed women all over the world will be wearing this coming season. It’s also a tribute to Swarovski’s creative role in the fashion industry and its partnerships with legendary fashion designers, as well as a celebration of the breathtaking power of Swarovski crystal.
