As we creep out of winter, eyeing fleeting rays of sunshine with hope in our hearts, we have a particularly sparkly spring to look forward to. First of all, there’s the 2013 Swarovski ad campaign starring catwalk queen Candice Swanepoel. Then there’s the spirit-lifting Spring/Summer Haute Couture season, with luxe looks of truly astonishing craftsmanship created by the best in the business, including the staggering precision of Yiqing Yin. And SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS flashes a foretaste of the dazzling delights we can expect in Spring/Summer 2014, previewed in this issue.
Add to the mix a thirty-year retrospective on Mario Testino, portrait photographer to the stars, an In Memoriam tribute to the much-missed Alexander McQueen, and a conversation with Philippine-born master of jewelry’s dark art, Chris Habana, and it’s nothing but must-reads this March!
