Until November 16, the stunning fine jewelry collections by Victoire de Castellane can been seen at Place Vendôme in a paper setting conceived by the Wanda artists.
Ivy twists around the stairwell of the Dior Joaillerie boutique on Paris' Place Vendôme. It wraps around the handrail, climbs the balustrades. Or falls in a cascade from the ceiling light like a living chandelier in a romantic grotto. Butterflies take refuge there. A little further on bees hide among the leaves, looking out on rhododendrons, wisteria, lily-of-the-valley, roses and daisies. This world, entirely in paper, can be found in the Dior boutique until November 16, in tandem with the arrival of the haute joaillerie collection designed by Victoire de Castellane.
Here, the Wanda artist collective, already having been given carte blanche to reinterpret the Lady Dior bag as part of the Lady Dior As Seen By traveling exhibition, created Monsieur Dior's winter garden in which bloom the small, delicate flowers he liked to row on his Milly-la-Forêt property. Seen against these paper monochromes, the colorful jewels and precious stones twinkle with a million fiery flickers.
