Canadian-born Erdem developed his crystal craftsmanship over twelve seasons as part of the Swarovski Collective, using Swarovski crystals to hand-embellish his delicate, whimsical designs. In 2008, Erdem collaborated with Atelier Swarovski to design a collection of fine silk scarves to accompany his SS09 ready-to-wear collection. Printed in saturated colors and embroidered with Swarovski crystals in soft pastel shades, the scarves perfectly encapsulated the romance of Erdem’s collection.

This season at Erdem, Swarovski Elements added depth and texture to opulent materials of brocade, tweed and lace. Delicate clusters of crystal beads and hand-embroidered pendants accentuated the collection’s vibrant palette of kaleidoscopic prints.
