Director Ronnie Cooke Newhouse from House & Holme, Swarovski has launched a powerful new advertising campaign for 2013. Targeting the modern woman—strong and sensual, feminine and elegant—the 2013 advertising campaign stars stunning supermodel Candice Swanepoel as ultra-sleek action woman accessorized with crystal-encrusted sports accessories specially made for the photo-shoot.
These arresting portraits are juxtaposed with dreamy still-life images of fresh
garden roses in pastel hues, crystalline dewdrops tumbling from petals. For Nick Knight, it
was the perfection of crystals and roses that drew him to the campaign concept: “…one
created by man and the other created by nature, but both the ultimate in luxury.” For
Ronnie Cooke Newhouse, the link was to do with light: “I saw a common thread between
the natural beauty of flowers, which need light in order to grow and be seen, and the finely
crafted beauty of crystals that come alive in the light.’
The fantasy props — motorbike helmet, dumbbell, and ski goggles — all reflect
