The iconic jewelry brand showcased over 120 years of heritage and craftsmanship with the first unveiling of its Fall/Winter 2018 Couture Collection in Asia, at a dazzling one-night gala event at The St. Regis Hotel
Global jewelry brand Swarovski hosted its annual regional “Brilliance for All” event at The St. Regis Hotel in Kuala Lumpur tonight, marking the company’s first-ever event of such scale in the capital city. As one of the most dynamic and fastest growing cities in the world, Kuala Lumpur has become a destination synonymous with its lush heritage and metropolitan luxury landscape, and a key market within the company’s thriving presence in Southeast Asia.
Every season, Swarovski’s distinctive sparkle plays the leading role in a new story, inviting women to embark on a journey to explore and accentuate their many brilliant facets. With the Fall/Winter 2018 “Crystal Tales” Collection, that journey leads to a new level of fantasy with a color palette decorated in rich jewel tones and golden accents that effortlessly transit with an alluring air into any look, day or night. Dialing up Swarovski’s vision of femininity, this collection’s of-the-moment silhouettes include layers upon layers of long pendants and charms, bold cocktail rings, delicate designs and ornate earrings.
“Today, our daily life is impacted by a high density of information and visual pollution,” explains Creative Director Nathalie Colin. “It’s a fast moving – and at times overwhelming – environment requiring constant agility. The world of magic, enchantment and fairy tales offers an escape from the everyday life. This captivating world inspired the Crystal Tales Collection. This season, I wanted to offer women a welcoming and sparkling world to retreat to, where they can be inspired by storytelling, re-energized by richly crafted designs, and feel at their most brilliant.”
In conjunction with Creative Director Nathalie Colin’s first trip to Malaysia, the event brilliantly showcased the Atelier Swarovski Fall/Winter 2018 Collection. Founded in 2007 by Nadja Swarovski, Atelier Swarovski offers cutting-edge jewelry, accessories and home décor to push the boundaries of creativity by collaborating with the finest talents across fashion, jewelry, architecture and design. The collection celebrated the return of Atelier Swarovski’s collaborations with designers Peter Pilotto and Mary Katrantzou, as well as welcomed the debut lines of editor and style icon Anna Dello Russo and designer Tabitha Simmons.
Also on showcase was Atelier Swarovski Core Collection, which included the Japanese-inspired “Graceful Bloom” collection. Created exclusively for the Asia-Pacific market, the 8-piece line featured a subtle yet sophisticated spectrum of rose pink crystals and blush pink Swarovski Crystal Pearls to symbolize luck, wisdom and wealth.
The festive evening celebrated each collection’s mesmerizing charm, highlighting Swarovski’s passion for creating contemporary designs that fulfill their 123-year commitment to quality craftsmanship. Striking a balance between Swarovski’s lasting heritage and its ever-evolving creativity, this season’s “Brilliance for All” event welcomed local and international celebrities, trendsetters and personalities, including the “Swarovski Brilliant 8: A Tribute to Women Who Sparkle”. It is the celebration of unique brilliant moments of multifaceted female talents. This dazzling group of eight women from around Southeast Asia embodies the sparkling spirit of the brand and shine extraordinarily within their individual facets. It is truly empowering women celebration. Swarovski Brilliant 8 are Neelofa, Venice Min, Nittha Jirayungyurn, Melissa Koh, Elizabeth Rahajeng, Olivia Lazuardy, Marie Lozano and Nicole Andersson.

ABOUT NEGRONI WEEK
Campari is a contemporary and charismatic classic. The secret recipe, which has remained unchanged, originated in Novara in 1860 and is the base for some of the most famous cocktails around the world, Campari is an alcoholic spirit obtained from the infusion of bitter herbs, aromatic plants and fruit in alcohol and water. With its vibrant red colour, intense aroma and inspiring flavour, Campari has always been a symbol of intrigue and pleasure, which unfurls itself into a captivating drinking experience. These are the values that have made the Campari brand famous throughout the world as an icon of passionate Milanese style and excellence.
It was around the year 1919 in Florence when Count Camillo Negroni contemplated ordering an Americano cocktail but decided it was time for a change. He requested it with a touch of gin instead of soda, inspired by his last trip to London and its prevalent gin scene. The bartender was pleased to honour Count Camillo Negroni’s request and added an orange garnish rather than the lemon wedge of the Americano to signify the new drink he had created. In Florence, the Count’s ‘usual’ became known as Count Negroni’s Americano, or the “Americano with a touch of gin”, but whatever it was referred to as back then, the Negroni was born. The Negroni is now one of the most famous contemporary classic cocktails. Anywhere you go in the world, you will find a mixologist who can make you the iconic Negroni. The original recipe, the perfectly balanced combination of equal parts of Campari, Red Vermouth and London Dry gin, is almost a century old and continues to be enjoyed today. The International Bartenders Association (IBA) lists Campari as an official ingredient of the Negroni, and thus, there is no Negroni without Campari! For more information visit www.campari.com.
