Rihanna said, “Shine bright like a diamond.” And this season, both designers and consumers are taking it to heart. Crystals are everywhere this Spring/Summer season, finding a home on everything from bags at Miu Miu to sandals and skirts from Michael Kors and dresses from Christopher Kane. Miu Miu has introduced a twist on both their classic black shoulder bag and belt bags, adorning both with crystal fringe, transforming each from a classic wardrobe staple to a must-have conversation piece.
Michael Kors chose wearable summer sandals with crystal straps to bring the trend to the masses while adorning Swarovski gemstone PVC skirts for his collection. British designer Christopher Kane’s latest collection embodies the versatility of crystals, trimming his entire collection from lace dresses to sweatshirts and boots in crystal mesh, proving that crystals can be worn both formally and casually, all the while adding an element of edge and glamour. Even Fendi is getting in on the action, bejeweling their iconic Mon Tresor bag.
Celebrities, influencers, and the fashion elite have all been seen rocking crystal accessories from the crystalized Alexander Wang “Thank You” bag seen on Kylie Jenner to the gemstone and PVC skirt mentioned above seen on Zendaya, this trend is for everyone. Our founder Penny Karabey has embraced the trend, pairing jeweled Michael Kors sandals with a leopard skirt and Dior book tote. Penny recommends mixing crystal accessories with bright colors and prints or feminine silhouettes to create the perfect mix of edge and femininity.
