December 7th will mark the opening of colette‘s latest pop up shop project, this time done in conjunction with Swarovski. Amongst the highlights will be a special installation as well as various exclusive product showcased in Swarovski Crystallized elements. The shop will remain open through January 2nd, 2010.
In December it will be the White Crystal Christmas at colette, in the wonderful world of Swarovski: We will discover the most beautiful pieces of Swarovski Crystal Palace (Eternal by Tokujin Yoshioka, Caillou from the Bouroullec brothers, Blossom by Tord Boontje…) including Osmosis by Arik Levy whose book (Thames & Hudson) will premiere at colette. Atelier Swarovski will of course be present, with the first collection of jewelry designed by architect Zaha Hadid. Futuristic pieces as opposed to archival pieces of the house, which will also be in exhibition. And calling to mind the multiple facets of crystal, one can also find the costumes for the Viktor & Rolf opera, the new D:Light watch in pink gold, Daniel Swarovski accessories and figurines, such as the beautiful snowflake by Ingo Maurer (whose profits go to Unicef). And that’s not all! colette had various objects crystallized to give them a new dimension: a Kuntzel+Deygas Diptyque, Medicom Toy Be@rbricks, a pair of Adidas Wings by Jeremy Scott, a Chocolate Street Machine skateboard, a Quiksilver surfboard and a bottle cork.
