Dior et Moi
Dior et Moi, the new high jewelry collection by Victoire de Castellane, is inspired by sentimental jewelry symbolically known as “toi et moi.” Dior’s new line illustrates its abstract and artistic nature as well as technical craftsmanship. “This collection is a continuation of my exploration of color, lacquer, geometry, and the mixing of materials by creating multicolored Art Deco pieces resembling small science fiction architecture,” says de Castellane, creative director of Dior Joaillerie. The collection brings together exceptional and semiprecious stones in a nonconventional way unique to the world of high jewelry. Precious stones can be found on modern silhouettes, multi-finger rings, bangles, necklaces, and mismatched earrings. With unusual colors, proportions, and shapes, de Castellane breaks with tradition to find the perfect balance between the current and the traditional.
