The new collection of crystal, zirconia and nanogem novelties is a majestic culmination of centuries of Bohemian folklore, fused seamlessly with subtle influences from the nature that is so abundant in the region of Bohemia where Preciosa is based. The looks for Atelier Bohemia were put together by the unmistakable and delicate hands of famous Czech designer Klára Nademlynská, along with headpieces by Jannie Baltzer, jewelery art pieces by Zorya, and intricate lace patterns from Věra Holomečková – arguably one of the most skilled lace-makers in the world, who also worked closely with Precicosa and Manolo Blahnik on a special limited edition of iconic Czech Hangisi Pumps made entirely from lace.
Following its international release on Monday 12th February 2018, Atelier Bohemia was put on display for the first time with intricate love and care at a large, elegant booth at the Premiere Vision fashion fair, which ran from 13th until 15th February. Visitors to the booth were encouraged to apply the new range of crystals and colors to their own customizable wrist-bands using various industry techniques. The new crystal, zirconia, nanogem looks, shoe-clips, and other beautiful pieces on display were admired and fawned over by many, as always making attendance at the three-day event a worthwhile and rewarding venture for Preciosa.
Premiere Vision is one of the largest and most important fashion industry gatherings in the world; the bi-annual event attracts thousands of internationally renowned textile, leather, and accessory brands and suppliers.
New crystal shapes created specifically for Atelier Bohemia include the Slim Navette MAXIMA, an ultra-narrow and long stone that emulates a cat’s eye, ideal for use as ornate, leafy embellishments and perfect for vibrant Spring/Summer motifs. New nanogem colors include the unique and delicate Lavender Jade, with an almost dreamlike opaqueness, and a soft, feminine hue. New customizable items include our lamp beads, hotfix transfers and shoe clips; for more information about our Customized Production department or to view the full collection, visit www.preciosacomponents.com/atelierbohemia.
