BRANDON MAXWELL, ALEXANDER WANG, JASON WU, SNOW XUE GAO USING SWAROVSKI CRYSTALS FOR THEIR FALL WINTER 2018 COLLECTIONS
New York, February 11, 2018 – Brandon Maxwell presented his Fall/Winter 2018 collection at Jazz at Lincoln Center this evening during New York Fashion Week, utilizing over 146,0000 Swarovski crystals within jewelry, bags and broaches.
Maxwell focused his jewelry on two main motifs – pineapples and knots.. He featured Swarovski crystal in pineapple ea rrings, broaches, and mini bags, as well as in knot earrings and bangles. This is the first season Maxwell’s jewelry was designed entirely in-house.
Maxwell commented: “Because the design and concepts of the garments are purposely quite simple,, they need the accessories to give them context. Partnering with Swarovski allows us to explore new ideas and elements that layer the look and better inform who the woman is and where she is going. We used pineapple a lot this season which is a sign of welcome and peace, and we felt that encrusting the pineapples with crystals h elps bring this symbol to life.”
A limited number of the Swarovski crystal jewelry pieces are now available for purchase at
