Galeries Lafayette Beijing and Swarovski have launched a Christmas celebration that has transformed the store into a crystal palace for the holiday season, with exclusive limited editions shimmering with Swarovski crystals.
Among the many attributes for which Galeries Lafayette and Swarovski are known, their longstanding support for young talented designers stands out. What better platform for their work than the Beijing flagship store’s Sparkling Christmas extravaganza, where the focus is fittingly on Chinese designers such as Wang Peiyi, Masha Ma, Zhang Chi and Christopher Bu.
To celebrate this special crystal-themed partnership, a spectacular launch event took place on November 14, 2014, attended by Chinese fashion icons Xie Na and Christy Chung (Zhong Liti), Chinese designers such as Alex Wang, Liu Qingyang, Christopher Bu, Wang Yang, and senior executives from Galeries Lafayettes and Swarovski. An extraordinary crystallized installation at the entrance gave guests pause before experiencing the theatrical in-store atmosphere. The highlight of the evening was a dazzling catwalk show and after-party, where participants basked in opulent glamour and enjoyed crystal-decorated desserts.
During the holiday season, Sparkling Christmas Collections at Galeries Lafayette Beijing will showcase window displays, store decorations and some 150 design pieces from womenswear, menswear, shoes and accessories, all glistening with Swarovski crystals. Around one hundred are limited editions available exclusively at Galeries Lafayette Beijing; another 45 are rare artworks and inspirational pieces for exhibition only.
From cool to chic, we’re totally in love with these stunning pieces. Let's get the Christmas shopping party started!
