Scheltens & Abbenes for Swarovski Elements
Swarovski Elements is bringing the bling this month. From September 7-20, the luxury crystal purveyor will present its "22 Ways to Say Black" exhibit, showcasing crystal-encrusted black dresses created by a slew of fashionable names like Lanvin, Armani, Donna Karan, Thakoon, Phillip Lim and more. On September 20, as a grand finale of sorts, First Lady of France Carla Bruni-Sarkozy will oversee an auction of the pieces by Phillips de Pury.
We all have one go-to little black dress (or maybe a few) in the closet—it's a fail-safe item for just about any occasion, which makes perfect sense that Swarovski would commission some of the industry's top designers to raise the bar for this reliable gold standard.
