>> I couldn’t conceivably title yet another post with “The Hills are Alive…” but it’s just about ok to shove another Julie Andrews-related lyric in there just to illustrate how happy I was to venture up into the hills by Wattens, where Swarovski’s headquarters are, back in April when they held their 120th anniversary event. Just before I left Austria, I went up there armed with pieces from Swarovski’s archives and a selection of their Atelier pieces – including collaborations with the likes of Masha Ma, Maison Margiela and Viktor & Rolf – to catch the meadow dew, mountain mist and the alpine spring bloom. If it looks like I’m about to break into Sound of Music song in every shot, that’s because I really did belt it out up there. In lieu of summer’s rays pelting London, Paris, New York… well, most places really, I thought I’d celebrate with this sparkle-filled, smiley happy fest.
