As we bask in baking-hot days and balmy nights, we hope you’ll enjoy this issue’s summer theme. You’ll find la crème of Lebanese couture, bejeweled accessories from Brazil’s top designers to mark their World Cup, and some of the most exquisite swimwear we’ve seen.
Madrid-based Anton Heunis explains what it’s like to be at the pinnacle of the jewelry arena for a decade, and New York-based Crystorama enchants us with mesmerizing chandeliers. We pay homage to the far-from-humble handbag, and gasp at the couture seen at the CFDA awards, rivaled only by Nicole Kidman’s sumptuous gowns in Grace of Monaco.
Rem Koolhaas blows us away with his installation for the Venice Biennale and looking ahead, we take a peek at the Inspirations & Innovations from Swarovski that await us next Fall. Enjoy your summer!
