Paying a tribute to Christian Dior’s favorite flower, the rose, the 54 pieces luxury collection, RoseDior associates with his childhood rose garden in Granville, Normandy. Victoire de Castellane, Dior’s jewelry artistic director draws inspiration from the history of the Maison for this charming high jewelry collection for Summertime.
Victoire de Castellane shows her love for vivid colors and unique forms, and combines rare gemstones in unexpected colors, exhibiting an innovative, artful interpretation of the perennial motif. A play on the intricacies of shades and cuts runs throughout the collection, reflected in the meticulous gradient of hues framing a Colombian emerald and juxtaposed oval and cushion-cut Sri Lankan sapphires, bringing a rich texture to the high jewelry rose garden.
Unlike the romantic and realistic RoseDior, the Dior Rose flower mutates and displays some surprising changes in its natural state, characterised by four sub-chapters, from the most figurative to the most abstract, with a detour via the futuristic styleVictoire de Castellane
