as tribute to Colette
Atelier Swarovski and Christopher Kane celebrate the 20-year history
of Colette with a Majestic Blue version of the iconic Double Bolster
bracelet, which can also be worn as a necklace, available exclusively at
the Parisian boutique from September.
Christopher Kane commented, “Sarah and her mother have created
an iconic and inspiring retail landmark, so we wanted to celebrate our
decade of collaboration with Atelier Swarovski by revisiting our classic
Double Bolster Bracelet necklace in Colette’s trademark blue. It’s the
perfect keepsake of an amazing fashion and design store.”
The exclusive Colette edition of the Double Bolster bracelet will
arrive in-store alongside the wider Atelier Swarovski by Christopher
Kane Bolster collection, which was created to mark the 10-year
anniversary of Atelier Swarovski and is available in four classic
Swarovski Crystal Mesh colorways.

worldwide from September 2017.
