  • Why does the heading state, ‘glaze’ and the designers notes state ‘glace’? Isn’t it the French word, ‘glace’ which means, ice?

    These pictures are too digital to really be able to ‘see’ her designs clearly.
    I’m intrigued. I think I’d like a piece from this collection.

    Emm says:
  • yes, it is in fact ‘glace’. it was a typo on our part.

  • She should stick to architecture – any trollop can do this stuff in a 3D prog – I’m sure Ms Hadid doesn’t even know or want to know where the “on” switch is.

  • nothing special in jewelery domain..boring..
    does every designer needs to design everything? jewellery, forks, buldings, furinture, dresses..and then after all will she direct a movie?

    muchacha says:
  • The Collection is actually part of the Atelier Swarovski collection, which focuses on developing cutting edge jewellery in collaboration with fashion designers, jewellery designers and architects. The pieces are produced in exclusive quantities, and sold in stores such as Corso Como, Colette, Harvey Nichols and Selfridges. More details can be found on
