Bags and Shoes From a Fairy-Tale
Swarovski crystals decorate shoes and handbags that will make us dream like we were princesses of classic love story.
What woman has not wanted to live the story of Cinderella? Or at least wear the famous glass slipper? It took 150 hours of work and 221 facets of Swarovski crystals to create the mythical shoe for the Disney film starring Lily James. A replica was created in a limited edition of 400 units on a scale of 85% at a price of € 1795 which sold out in hours.
Since it was founded in 1895, Swarovski has become one of the most admired jewelry companies by thousands of women around the world. Their beauty is their secret, since nobody knows the creation process of a crystal from beginning to end, not even the craftsmen themselves.
But how do these firms work with the company? Ariadna Hosta let me know. «The division that supplies the loose crystals is Swarovski Professional. Our clients tend to be powerful companies with a strong national and international presence, such as Chanel, Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, among others, and they use a minimum of 10,000 crystals each year.» Also «We guarantee the quality of Swarovski, which is why we offer training in the correct application of crystals throughout the whole process.»
Is what we see in a product always official Swarovski crystal? «The ‘Crystals from Swarovski’ seal guarantees that a product has Swarovski crystals. High-security holographic technology is used on a silver plate with the seal inscription.»
