It wouldn’t be fair week in Milan without the “Swarovski Crystal Palace”—this year’s, installed in the Porta Genova district, showcases a dozen designs by Arik Levy. But that’s not the only trick this ambitious manufacturer has up its sleeve. A permanent offshoot sprouts across the Atlantic in May: New York’s Swarovski Crystallized is the second store of its kind, following London, and is the work of the same firm, Schlögl & Süss Architekten. As in London, look for lots of glass, resin, and LEDs as well as a restaurant. Among the glittering offerings spread over 3,500 square feet, on two levels, will be loose crystals in countless colors, clothing, and the jewelry of Andrée Putman’s Fantastic Flowers collection, which launched in March.
