Tokyo Swarovski Bash

Swarovski is pulling its weight in crystal with the opening of their first ever flagship store in Ginza and the biggest bash of the year so far at Meiji Picture Memorial with more celebs in tow than you can throw a fistfull of rhinestones at.

On Tuesday at the hotel where I went to see the Mila Schon show I saw signs for the Swarovski people, and some young Asian mega-riche with their brand-new Richard Prince Vuitton bags and bling to match. Are they shipping in Hong Kong popstars?? I wonder, as I get a little bit more excited about Thursday’s bash.

I was treated to a preview of the collection for fall 08 titled “passages of night”. It was very young and rock and punk. Crystal studs and lightning bolts, and a little Murakami-esque character with giant anime eyes and a purple crystal-studded head. I felt it was perfect in line with young party girls out and about.

I was more impressed with the pieces inspired by skyscrapers; very art deco, square hunks of sparkly glass in subtle greens and purples that looks like multitudes of window panes.

So then, comes the night of the show and party. Dresscode: glittering chic. I wore a dress with enough sparkle to rival a discoball——

Everyone who`s anyone was there, and after the show we danced to Osawa Shinichi of Mondo Grosso while the Kanno Sisters, idol/model Jessica Michibata, Tsuchiya Anna, TV personality Ikko, actress Ryoko Hirosue, Momoi Kaori etc etc took photos from VIP for everyone.

Turns out all of those mega-riche HongKong popstars were really just mega-riche fashion editors from HongKong and China.

…and here I was hoping for a performance of some good ol ‘pop’ and ‘cheese’ to go with my champagne. Guess Swarovski still has to keep a semblance of high-class.
