ALL THAT GLITTERS: Swarovski Elements has tapped 16 men’s wear designers to create special items that will be unveiled at an event for 600 guests at the Palazzo Clerici in Milan Saturday. The designs range from tuxedos created by Emporio Armani, Brioni and Zegna to brogues from Salvatore Ferragamo and a fedora from Borsalino, all of which incorporate Swarovski Elements crystals in unique ways. Other participating designers include Gianfranco Ferré, Dior Homme, Piombo, Hugo Boss, Marni and Roberto Cavalli. The items will be available commercially across a variety of retail channels. “The crystals can genuinely give a new dimension to something quite classic,” noted Pringle of Scotland designer Clare Waight Keller.
