London-based eveningwear label Galvan was established in 2014, and has since established a hold in the fashion industry. The label was created by Sola Harrison, Carolyn Hodler, Katherine Holmgren, and Anna-Christin Haas – four stylish young women, who want to see the world of fashion just a little more sophisticated and elegant. The brand is known for boldly cut designs with surprisingly simple and beautiful construction. The women in this label know how to pull together the worlds of fashion and art, so we’re overjoyed to see that Galvan will get some time in the spotlight.
It has already had its fair share of exposure, dressing red carpet celebrities like Jennifer Lawrence, Sienna Miller, and Rihanna, and the 2016 awards shows will likely be laden with some more stunning designs from Galvan. But that is a matter to be looked at later; there is more pressing news at hand for these four women.
The label has been tapped by the duo of luxury fashion and lifestyle brand Opening Ceremony and the brand that makes everything in the world sparkle, Swarovski, to collaborate on and create a capsule collection for everyone, from the top social elite to everyday shoppers. The Opening Ceremony x Swarovski x Galvan collection will produce a line of ready-to-wear clothes, which will be exclusive to OC, as well as special pieces encrusted by Swarovski, perfect for the red carpet and other starlet events.
Those involved with the collaboration hosted a dinner Wednesday evening, where the styles from the collection were showcased, and Thursday a trunk show was brought to OC’s Los Angeles flagship. It appears everyone involved is getting excited for the release of this collection unto the world.
“Not only is it the epitome of L.A. cool, but the company has also reinvented what fashion means for the modern woman – both how and where she wears it,” Galvan CEO Katherine Holmgren told Vogue, in regard to the aesthetic of the OC brand. This is very telling of what we can expect to see from the collection, as it’s totally feasible that the women of Galvan’s eye for elegance and OC’s “cool” factor will play right off of one another.
According to Opening Ceremony’s website, the looks in the Galvan for Opening Ceremony collection will be suited for any occasion; whether you’re walking the red carpet, or if you’re just watching the festivities. You can be wearing a piece from the collection while you watch celebrities wearing the Swarovski gowns for their respective awards ceremonies.
The most exciting prospect of this whole collaboration is thinking about who will be wearing those Swarovski gowns in the upcoming awards season. It’s something we’ll have to wait and see, but with Galvan’s track record, we can assume we’ll see these numbers on elite starlets walking down the red carpet, perhaps even walking up on stage to receive an award. But let’s be honest; seeing which designers celebrities choose to wear on the red carpet is just as exciting as waiting for the awards announcements! And with a collaboration between Opening Ceremony, Galvan, and Swarovski all in one, I’d place my money on seeing a lot of looks from this collection walking this season.
