Swarovski and Aquazzura have collaborated to launch the dazzling new Aura sandal as the latest addition to the Swarovski Creators Lab. Celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Italian footwear brand, this collaboration debuts a mesmerizing new shoe design in a limited-release range of vibrant colors adorned with Swarovski Crystals.

The partnership is a beautiful and natural fit, as Swarovski and Aquazzura share the same commitment to superior craftsmanship and artistry. Since its début in 2011, Aquazzura has frequently chosen Swarovski Crystals to embellish its alluring array of footwear worn by trendsetters, Hollywood stars, and fashion insiders around the globe.

Exquisite detail and exceptional quality are key attributes of the new Aura sandal. Most striking of all, however, is the dramatic use of bright color and geometric adornment inspired by Swarovski’s key jewelry collections. Each pair of Aura sandals is handmade in Italy and features heels that are raised high on octagon-cut fancy stones and ankle straps embellished with glittering square-cut crystals. Two unique shades will be available as part of the Swarovski Creators Lab: a Very Peri colorway made with laminated Nappa leather and purple crystals; and a Soft Gold colorway made with laminated Nappa leather, transparent plexi, and gold- colored crystals.

Both will be available as part of the Swarovski Creators Lab on and in select Swarovski stores.

Three additional colorways in the Aura collection will be available only from Aquazzura: Lime Green, Bougainvillea Pink, and Shimmering Silver.
