Dreaming in Swarovski with #ParkShinHye
by Calvin Chong
Leave it to this Korean wonder to transport us into a Swarovski fantasy dream.
Every season, Swarovski brings new innovations to its collection and for this Spring/Summer 2018, the jeweller worked with celebrated Korean actress Park Shin Hye to showcase the collection.
Featured in a series of photos, we see Shin Hye wearing a selection of her favourite Swarovski pieces, all styled within a few of her signature fashion looks and we are in love!
Loved for her role in Stairway to Heaven (2003), Shin Hye is one of the most coveted faces in fashion right now. So, less talk and let's get into it right now!
Our Love In White
Wearing the Lilia series (earrings and necklaces), Shin Hye shows that the simplest design goes a long way with the right outfit.
In this case, a white-on-white blazer with butterflies floating all around you is perfect for both work and play.
An Evening Dream
And when it comes to an elegant evening look, the Swarovski collection is a definite staple – be it jewellery or watches.
Here, Shin Hye graces an evening lace look with a set of Vittore earrings and a Cosmic Rock timepiece.
That Exotic Weekend
For that kick-back weekend look, why not be a little exotic and funky?
The Lime Pineapple necklace and Lime bracelet paired with the Lisabel bee-shaped ring is Shin Hye's go-to.
The Rainbow Fantasy
In the case where you need that subtle splash of colours, try the Last Summer Pendant, Last Summer Earrings and Swarovski Remix collection.
Sparkling in the colour of rainbow, these pieces will brighten up even the dullest days and Shin Hye looks perfect in it.
"Tens, tens, tens across the board," we say!
Her Stella Blooms
Even when you're just at home in a comfortable slip dress, there's no stopping you from getting dressed in jewels.
In this case, the Stella watch and Sparkling Dance Flowers necklace and earring studs are the simplest and chicest choice.
Even if you need to run out for a grocery run, you know that you are picture perfect and runway ready.
The Swarovski Spring/Summer 2018 collections are now available at all Swarovski boutiques nationwide. Visit www.swarovski.com to see more.
When Park Shin Hye tries on jewellery, it is wise to have somebody on hand to catch what she drops. She might be one of South Korea’s most successful actresses and influential stars, but when it comes to keeping track of the small and the sparkling, she is a self-confessed klutz. “I’m always losing them,” she laughs, making the long delicate earrings shiver and catch the sunlight.
The jewellery she is wearing today is Atelier Swarovski and it has brought her halfway across the world from her home in Seoul to the south of France to shoot a campaign for the SS18 collection. Park is a friend of the brand, chosen not just for her talents as an actress, singer and dancer, but for her philanthropic work helping children.
One of the 27-year-old Park’s first steps towards the limelight was taken in 2003 when she played the character of a ragged but optimistic orphan in a war-torn land in the music video for ‘Flower’ by South Korean pop sensation Lee Seung-hwan…
