Christian Dior was one of the key players in the extravagant costume balls and lavish celebrations that took place during the post-war period. He was both a highly sought-after designer and exceptional host. This is what inspired the Incroyables et Merveilleuses collection. As with haute couture, these pieces are unique, and their motifs paint pictures of stories filled with butterflies, dragonflies, flowers and fruits.
These narrative pieces are a tribute to the extravagance of the 'Incroyables', dandies from the 18th century who exhibited assured style. These exceptional settings are adorned with extraordinary centre stones of more than 60 carats in gorgeous colours, including aquamarines, amethysts, citrines, beryls and morganites.
