The Blonds Unveil A Preciosa Crystal-Coated Platinum Paradise At New York Fashion Week

Preciosa Components, the leading manufacturer and global supplier of premium Bohemian crystal, has been tapped by the iconic avant-garde design duo.

On Tuesday, September 12 at 9pm, this year’s spring/ summer collection included wild animal prints and dazzling head-to-toe Preciosa crystals that brought the theme of “Platinum Paradise” to life.

“This season is a vision of a platinum paradise, full of diamond studded leopards and crystal waterfalls. This collection was brought to life utilizing Preciosa elements such as hot fix and cushion cut stones in all shapes and sizes. This season we have also included a look inspired by crystal itself and all of its many facets, which was put on display at the show,” said David Blond.

"We have enjoyed working with The Blonds for several seasons now, but this collection is very special because it featured a stunning crystal-covered look weighing over 50 lbs.," said Karel Páral Commercial Development Director, Preciosa Components. "We continuously look for unique projects and this one was particularly spectacular as the visual effect was unparalleled.”

One-of-a-kind pieces by The Blonds incorporating Preciosa crystals are frequently worn by world-famous performing artists, such as Jennifer Lopez, Britney Spears, Beyoncé, Gwen Stefani, and Lady Gaga.
