Making dreams come true. This year, Dolce&Gabbana have collaborated with Swarovski to create a richly detailed and precious tiara to be worn by the debutantes at the Vienna Opera Ball 2018.
Dolce&Gabbana drew inspiration for the headpiece from Mozart’s opera Le nozze di Figaro, in particular, the words sung in the eighth scene of the first act: “Giovani lieti – fiori spargete!” (“Happy maids, scatter flowers!”). This image has been poetically reflected in the floral design of the tiara, where delicate blossoms meet organic curved leaves created using 702 Swarovski crystals and Golden Shadow shades as well as six rose-colored enamel flowers.
Swarovski’s creative partnership with the famous Vienna Opera Ball has existed since the 1950s. Organized by the Vienna State Opera, the event is the cultural highlight of the Viennese ball season. Each year, Swarovski works with a different international designer to impart the debutantes’ tiaras with extraordinary brilliance.
