Céline Cousteau may spend most of her time trekking around the Amazon, but that doesn’t mean the environmentalist and filmmaker isn’t a master accessorizer. Donning a cascade of necklaces, some of which were comprised of Swarovski crystals, others trinkets she acquired during her travels, Cousteau last night welcomed guests to Spring Studios, where her second collaborative collection with Swarovski made its debut. Dubbed “Tribute to Tribe,” the range ties into Cousteau’s forthcoming film, Tribes on the Edge, a documentary about the indigenous tribes of the Vale do Javari in the Brazilian Amazon. A brief clip of the moving film screened at the event.
It’s worth noting that Cousteau’s first collection of crystal innovations, which were used in Fall 2016 jewelry by Sorrelli and Camila Klein, was called Ocean Mysteries. If you haven’t already guessed from her last name, she is the granddaughter of legendary French explorer Jacques Cousteau.
