DIOR UNVEILS DEAREST DIOR HIGH JEWELLERY COLLECTION
Apply the principles of haute couture to jewelry and celebrate Dior’s patrimony in a profusion of stones and diamonds.
Ten years after Dear Dior, five years after Dior Dior Dior, Victoire de Castellane continues to write the House’s jewelry lexicon with a new interpretation of the subtlety of lace, embodied by the Dearest Dior collection. A plural ode to the heritage of Christian Dior and the virtuosity of the Maison’s savoir-faire, reflected through seventy-seven extraordinary creations, conveying a multi-faceted femininity, both fragile and powerful, timeless and infinitely modern.
Embracing the body with sensuality, underlining the grace of movement, each bijou expresses the desire of Dior Joaillerie’s Artistic Director to create jewelry that can be worn as close to the skin as possible, borrowing its finesse and lightness from lace. The mounts of the necklaces, rings and bracelets are so airy they seem to disappear, leaving diamonds and rubies, pearls and tourmalines, blue, pink or yellow sapphires to reveal their shimmering shades in complex compositions that evoke the intertwining of refined guipure. A feat that testifies to the excellence of Dior’s workshops, highlighted by the many techniques required to devise these precious pieces.
Thus, in a hypnotic play of shine and transparency, the lace is made of gold thanks to the conception of remarkably supple mesh sheets, the result of extensive research and development. The lines and articulations have been carefully studied to adapt perfectly to the curves of the hand, wrist and neck, while the flat volume reproduces the delicacy of lace laid directly on the skin. A goldsmith’s ribbon, enhanced by a series of stitched diamonds, scattered flowers, tassels and sequins, perpetuates the dialogue between jewelry and couture. Inspired by the Dior Galons models, motifs feature plant designs in homage to the founding-couturier’s unconditional passion for nature.
Forging a link between tradition and innovation, earrings boldly play with asymmetry, necklaces become ultra-contemporary chokers and a ruby-set pendant is transformed into a brooch.
A captivating new chapter, a tribute to the exceptional savoir-faire of the Ateliers, where the Dior dream comes to life.
