Atelier Swarovski Launches Spring Collection with Canadian Designer Mark Fast
Swarovski has once again teamed with global designers (of both fashion and accessories) for its Atelier line of high-fashion, ultra-stylized jewellery for spring 2011. This time around, Canadian-born, London-based knitwear designer Mark Fast has been commissioned to add designs to the line with his Olga Collection, named after his grandmother. Fast adapted an original vintage necklace, based on the design of one belonging to his grandmother Olga, into a colourful collection focused around Swarovski Lily pendants, with blue opal, crystal silver shade and vintage rose stones. The collection is made up of necklaces, pendants, cuffs and dangling earrings, which can also be seen on the runway with Mark Fast’s Ready-to-Wear clothing for Spring/Summer 2011.
