Dior Joaillerie

The Dictionary of Victoire de Castellane

ISBN: 9780847863365 (HB BOX - E)

As creative director of Dior Joaillerie since its beginnings in 1998, Victoire de Castellane is renowned for her fearless approach to jewellery. Crossing the boundary between natural and artificial, her fantastical jewels are inspired by global pop culture, Christian Dior's life and work, and the floral world and embody a timeless, poetic style. To fete 20 years of Victoire de Castellane's designs, this luxurious volume presents a dictionary of 26 chapters, each introduced with a dazzling drop cap embellished with an original photo collage. From the first Couture collection to the acclaimed Excentriques necklaces and the celebrated floral gardens of Belladone Island, Dior Joaillerie's history is explored from its debut and up to the latest collection, presented in Venice in June 2019 and exclusively shot for this publication. More than 300 images by renowned photographers such as Guido Mocafico and Erwan Frottin illustrate this original, alphabetical journey. Through the dictionary entries penned by Olivier Gabet, director of the Musee des Arts Decoratifs, readers uncover nonlinear, playful insights into the fascinating world of one of the world's foremost jewellery designers. Printed in Italy and featuring a jewel-shaped tip-on, and with creative direction by Thomas Lenthal, this exquisite piece of bookmaking is a stunning homage to Victoire de Castellane's artistry and imagination.
