Every year Swarovski releases 2 new collections with innovations and inspirations for the next year. The collection for spring/summer launches in February and one for fall/winter in September. Swarovski Innovations for Spring/Summer 2019 come under the name “Wanderlust” and they bring new shapes and colors of Swarovski crystals.
The word “wanderlust” denotes a strong desire to travel, to meet new people places and cultures. Swarovski’s interpretation of this is to desire experiences rather than things. As a result, they are highlighting the reasons why people love to travel: for boundless joy, a feeling of freedom, new barefoot luxury etc. The inspiration for this collection came from current social changes that are driving all of us.
