Maison Martin Margiela and Atelier Swarovski hosted a VIP cocktail party at their Design District boutique last night for the unveiling of their new avante-garde jewelry collection Crystalactite.

In celebration of the debut, French artist Baptiste Debombourg also created an site-specific installation titled Stalker, which was aptly named for all of the stalking of Bravo-lebrities and fashion people we did last night. And of course, Cultist was there to capture it all.

But first, let's talk about the art.

Using cascading layers of shattered and laminated glass that resembled stalactites, Debombourg created a fantastical crystalline structure that was draped over furniture and clothing.

Atelier Swarovski by Maison Martin Margiela's limited edition collection Crystalactite, features a set of futuristic jewels created using an innovative fusion technique that blends crystal and matte white resin. The pendant, ring, bracelet, and brooch are feminine but at the same time have that raw, industrial aesthetic Margiela is so well-known for.

Upcoming Events

 

A bevy of Bravo stars were in attendance, mingling, clinking Champagne glasses, and posing for photographers. Adriana de Moura (she of the questionably fake wedding) seemed to love the attention from the photographers, and the photographers loved her, too. Say what you will about her on-screen antics, but The Real Housewives of Miami star is a stunner in person.

Luis D. Ortiz from Bravo's Million Dollar Listing New York and fine art photographer William John Kennedy were there as well. Ortiz' hair was definitely the star of the event.
