Victoire de Castellane’s wonderful move

 

Dior Joaillerie’s artistic director unveils a baroque interpretation of the mythic “J’adore” perfume bottle. An invitation to discovery.

Victoire de Castellane’s wonderful move

The brilliant jewelry designer Victoire de Castellane conceived a unique bottle to contain the mythic floral perfume of the house, J’adore

She got inspired by the brightness of the golden liquid, realizing how similar that shimmer was to the precious stones she usually works with. An oversized rigid 18th century-inspired knot now adorns the Baccarat crystal amphora. In a spirit of interaction between light and dark, the darkened gold material revived by 10 pear-shaped diamonds and 30 round diamonds appears to be in contrast with the liquid and its glass bead. Very suggestive, the ribbon invites you to a voluptuous exploration, and makes you feel the tension that goes with the unveiling... A sensual move, now captured in the eternity of gold.

 

J'adore L'Or, Edition d'Exception, Dior. Available to order at the Christian Dior store. Christian Dior, 30, avenue Montaigne. Paris VIIIe.
