To celebrate Christmas as a festival of traditions, with a dash of that certain extra something:
Swarovski does so with incomparable flair. This is also why Swarovski Wien should be the first
destination for Christmas purchases, whether planned long ago, or just a spur-of-the-moment
decision, until December 24. And with its festive display window staged by designer Stuart
Henry, it is the perfect place to set the tone for the coming holidays.
At Swarovski Wien, designer Stuart Henry toys with the contrasts between warm colors and the cool
elegance of snowy winter landscapes, and between the ultramodern urbanity of a metropolis today
and the comforting warmth of its historic structures from days past. To achieve this, the British
designer turned to a reindeer motif, using antlers coated with glittering crystals as a pre-Christmas
eye-catching feature to lure shoppers strolling down Kärntner Straße. It is not without reason that
Father Christmas chose the reindeer to be his trusted, sweet-natured companions. So it also stands to
reason that this beloved icon of the Christmas season would likewise serve as a perfect foil for the
design by Stuart Henry, who recently created the showcase window for Swarovski at London’s worldfamous
department store, Harrods, and the design of “The Taming of the Shoe” exhibit at Swarovski
Innsbruck in Tyrol.
