Known for her uncompromising artisanal approach to her collections, Parisian born designer Faustine Steinmetz focuses on creating timeless collections, with simple pieces that have become cult classics amongst her clientele. Beginning her studies at Atelier Chardon Savard, Steinmetz then moved to London to complete her Masters in the prestigious Central Saint Martins under the guidance of Professor OBE Louise Wilson.

With a solid background working for the likes of Henrik Vibskov and Jeremy Scott, Steinmetz launched her label under her namesake in 2007. As a self-taught weaver, the designer’s precise focus is on iconic pieces allows for challenging and innovative material and sculptural creations. Compelling surfaces give way to simple silhouettes, for collections which are the antidote to throwaway clothing.

This is Faustine Steinmetz’s first collection with Swarovski Collective.
