Dior Unveils the ‘Diorama & Diorigami’ High Jewelry Collection

The first chapter of the Diorama & Diorigami collection

Dior Diorama

Infinite sources of inspiration, Dior’s iconic codes have continually embellished Victoire de Castellane’s jewelry creations since 1999. This year, the Artistic Director perpetuates that rich heritage with an unprecedented collection entitled Diorama & Diorigami; a subtle interlude between yesterday and today, a symbiosis of refinement and voluptuousness.

Inaugurating this prodigious odyssey, the first chapter of the line, Diorama, reproduces the emblematic toile de Jouy. That dreamy motif, an expression of French art de vivre and a symbol of the 18th century, was a key factor in Christian Dior’s dazzling success. When his original boutique, Colifichets, was furnished, the walls, counters and even the canopy were dressed in that exceptional ornamental fabric.

Reinterpreting this fabulous illustrated universe – like incredible little frescoes magnified by combinations of hues and volumes – these new models invite you on a gentle stroll through the garden of Milly-la-Forêt. Each of them unveils a mesmerizing decor punctuated by poetic flora and fauna: a golden rabbit leaps into a bush paved with scintillating diamonds while two owls flutter amid branches adorned with flamboyant rubies, and majestic swans appear at the heart of a pond bordered by sparkling blue sapphires. The couture nature features a fox, a squirrel and a deer, all distinguished by the intensity of chrysoprase. Completing this marvelous theater,
yellow and rose gold foliage mingles with luxuriant shrubbery and flowerbeds studded with jewels resembling delicate petals. The final surprises – heralding the second story, Diorigami –are a necklace, a ring, and elegant earrings, which in turn portray flourishing greenery, enhancing
this sumptuous selection.

The fruit of excellent savoir-faire, the pieces embody the virtuosity of the Ateliers, crafted using the ancestral technique of glyptics, engraving or sculpting precious stones. In a succession of precise gestures, the artisans carve the elements, affixing them one by one, bringing to life a multitude of captivating landscapes forming a veritable Eden. Dior Joaillerie’s signature laquer also brings out the nuances of these enchanting tableaus, revealing vibrant shades such as the deep green of emeralds harmonized with the softer verdant tones of tsavorite garnets.

A plural ode to the magic of the exquisitely meticulous and the splendors of the plant world, so dear to Dior.
