MARCOLIN: SWAROVSKI

THE BEAUTY OF CRYSTAL

Marcolin Group launches Swarovski Eyewear, consisting of 18 ophthalmic frames and 12 sunglasses. The initial collections are targeted exclusively to women. Designed to evoke emotion and the poetry of precision, the new line places crystals at the heart of the design, taking full advantage of the play of light and the natural beauty of crystals. The crystals thus become an integral, architectural part of the frame design, rather than mere decoration. The iconic swan and swan flower motifs are used throughout the collections. A variety of shapes and sizes, including aviators, oversized ovals, rounds and irregular geometric designs are offered.

INSIGHT
In 1892 Daniel Swarovski invented a revolutionary machine that allowed crystals to be cut more precisely than ever before. Since the invention and founding of the company in 1895, Swarovski has focused on the vision of bringing joy to people through crystals in various forms while holding true to a guiding principle still followed by the company today: “Constantly improve what is good.”
