Swarovski ‘Brilliant Inspiration’ Ad Campaign by Tim Walker



Swarovski is set to launch an inspiring new brand campaign titled Brilliant Inspiration in september. Starring eight brilliant talents from the worlds of art, design and style. Consisting of eight striking portraits shot by Tim Walker, the images represent an anthem for creativity, designed to break through boundaries and open up a world of possibilities beyond.
The portraits in the Brilliant Inspiration campaign include Rodarte’s Kate and Laura Mulleavy, champions of exquisite and original American fashion, surrounded by their delicately crystallized butterflies.

Edward Enninful, W magazine’s Creative and Fashion Director and the visionary behind many runway shows, campaigns and shoots for fashion’s global players, wears an immaculate suit crawling with bejeweled insects.

Shoe and accessories designer Charlotte Olympia Dellal, with her distinctive nostalgic take on contemporary styling, sports her famous Kitty flats as Playboy Bunny ears.

Jason Wu displays his refined, modern take on old world feminine glamour, from fashion to furniture, by draping himself in breathtaking, intricately embellished embroideries.

Supermodel Karlie Kloss, who also is the new face of Swarovski’s consumer campaign.

Mary Katrantzou, the ‘maximalist’ fashion designer famous for her explosive prints, who dramatically clutches a richly embroidered creation to her chest. 

Thom Browne, the master of impeccable tailoring is captured with an extravagantly crystal-encrusted briefcase, giving him a distinctly 007 air.


Makeup artist Isamaya Ffrench, who has elevated her unconventional craft to an art form, stares defiantly at the camera, paintbrush in hand and a palette of scarlet crystals, next to a disembodied model’s head.

I`m superloving the campaign. Tim Walker`s precision and creative play with angles, proportions and perspective is fascinating. It`s amazing the see the designers and artists work the crystals, too.
