Swarovski: Not just crystals. This season, the legendary sparkle-maker collaborated with New York Fashion Week talent including Rodarte, Phillip Lim, Yigal Azrouel, Peter Som, Alexander Wang, Halston, and Prabal Gurung. Some of these designers, including Wang, Rodarte, and Julian Louie used Swarovski Crystal Pearls—a high-quality imitation pearl that has a crystal core, which makes its weight and cool temperature match that of a real pearl.
