When two avant-garde brands famed for luxury and innovation team up, the result is sure to inspire. January 12 marks the start of Fashion Week in Florence, and upscale shopping destination LUISAVIAROMA has collaborated with Swarovski to bring us something very special. During the twelfth edition of its biannual fashion extravaganza Firenze4Ever (opening January 10–24), a unique exhibition will be presented. Called Tech Dreamers inspired by Swarovski, it features thirty of the world’s key designers, who have been pushed to the very limits of their creativity.
Preparations are hush-hush, but we can reveal that once you get past a series of giant quartz mirrors blitzed with thousands of crystals, you’ll encounter video art installations and two fashion showcases: ‘Limited Edition’ and ‘Crystal Couture. An Exhibition.’ Word is that the designers were given a ‘no rules’ brief, so they’ve ended up creating some truly eye-popping limited-edition pieces for the first showcase. The second one promises to be no less thrilling. A tribute to high fashion past and present, this one-off collection is to be unveiled on the evening of January 9 at a glamorous gala dinner. Be sure to put a January visit to Florence’s LUISAVIAROMA on your list of New Year’s resolutions.
