Viktor & Rolf collaborate with Swarovski at Paris Fashion Week 09. Swarovski developed a matt effect for the black stones that were hand embroided on the couture mini dresses for a total, including the colored ones (Rose, Erinite, Sapphire), of 20,000 large crystals. Each piece is one of a kind, weights 10 kilos and it took over 10 weeks of work. The collection finds its strenght in the juxtaposition of the visual weight of the stones and the lightness of the pleated organza. Viktor&Rolf are also the creators of two jewellery (Striped and Flame) collections for Atelier Swarovski that explore the versatility of crystal design and screen-printing.
