Zaldy

Spring/Summer 2012 | Autumn/Winter 2013

With an unmistakable gift for creating glamour through his craft, Zaldy’s fabulous stage costumes are worn by some of the most high profile performers in the world including Lady Gaga and Gwen Stefani. The designer brings his virtuosity to his two collections with Atelier Swarovski.

“I like the play between the square cut Swarovski crystal and the organic shape of the metal.”

— Zaldy

The Shadow collection uses large structural crystals while On the Edge sets smaller crystals into sinuous metal forms. The latter shrinks the crystals to miniature baguettes in golden shadow, crystal and jet tones, set in matte and mirrored bands. Zaldy’s second collection Shadow was developed when he set aside paper and began to sculpt jewelry from clay and crystals. The star-like finished pieces are reminiscent of Art Deco designs and the brilliance of the large crystals is magnified by their simple colors, either clear or the specially-developed shade Sahara.

Based in New York, Zaldy has designed stage clothes for Mick Jagger, The Scissor Sisters, Britney Spears and for Lady Gaga’s ‘Monster Ball’ tour as well as being the exclusive costume designer for Michael Jackson’s planned ‘This Is It’ tour. He has also created costumes for the Cirque du Soleil and developed his own line of clothing whilst acting as a consultant for other brands.
