Swarovski Collective Announces Its Fall 2013 Designers
(NEW YORK) Scoop of the sparkly variety!

SUNO designers Max Osterweis and Emily Beatty announced their collection's inspiration yesterday as a "modern day Joan of Arc," so perhaps we'll see crystal coats of armor? The wait continues for word of what Scott Sternberg is cooking up for Band of Outsiders, but the designer has said Swarovski is "like a benevolent patron for young designers and the wild ideas that come out of them." He'll hopefully be bringing those wild ideas out in full force!
But New York is just the first stop on the tour du Swarovski. Next up, London designers getting crystallized are Mary Katrantzou, Emilia Wickstead, Eudon Choi, Giles, Marios Schwab and Huishan Zhang. In Milan, No 21 made the Swarovski cut, while in Paris, Maxime Simoens and Masha Ma will be jazzing up their collections with the jewels.
