A long-time supporter of the British Independent Film Awards, Swarovski collaborated with acclaimed British designers Fredrikson Stallard to create the stunning trophy as part of its mission to nurture creative talents both on and off screen.
Swarovski made its sparkling debut on the silver screen in the earliest days of Hollywood 85 years ago, when cinematic designers drew upon the brilliance of crystal to adorn their sets and add glamour to their stars. Sparkle became the magic ingredient used to imbue its wearer with a powerfully attractive talisman – light. Soon Swarovski began working hand-in-hand with costume, jewellery and production designers, and the results were spellbinding – its crystals has played a supporting role in some of Hollywood’s most memorable moments, from Audrey Hepburn’s tiara in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and Marilyn Monroe’s dazzling jewels in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes to numerous Bond films and Disney’s 2015 live-action fairy-tale Cinderella, for which they collaborated with Sandy Powell to create the shimmering solid crystal slipper.
However as cinema, stage and performance technology continues to evolve, the purpose of costume design remains the same: to provide each story with that unforgettable moment. Swarovski crystals continue to be in the centre of the frame, encircling our stars, making magic and helping filmmakers tell their most compelling stories.

St Martins LaneFrom its dazzling location at the hub of Covent Garden, West End theatres and Trafalgar Square, St Martins Lane is a dramatic and daring reinvention of the urban resort. Smart, witty and sophisticated, Philippe Starck’s design is a brilliant collision of influences - from the modern to the baroque - that suffuses the hotel with energy, vitality and magic. Entered through improbably tall, luminescent yellow-glass revolving doors—the tallest in London—St Martins Lane’s lobby is a soaring and theatrical space that offers a provocative manipulation of dimension and proportion. Starck presents a visually stunning play on scale, with oversized columns and angled niches painted a deep fluorescent yellow, complemented by Portuguese limestone floors. From its acid-etched, double-height yellow glass facade to its unpredictable plays on vivid colour to the dramatic series of columns that appear as shining towers, St Martins Lane’s lobby is a triumph of colour and light.
Sanderson, in the heart of London’s West End, offers a retreat from the bustle of the city into a world of fantasy and well-being. The landmarked 1950s building has been transformed by Philippe Starck into a surreal Cocteau-like dream world, epitomising a new luxury that is smart, pared-down and tempered with a healthy dose of wit and irony. Just steps from Oxford Street shopping and the Soho district in London, Sanderson is a five star luxury boutique hotel ideally located for weekend breaks or business travel.
