From Haute Couture to Haute Joaillerie: Archi Dior

Archi Dior, the new High Jewellery collection created by Victoire de Castellane (Dior Jewellery’s Artistic Director), celebrates Dior’s emblematic designs.

All the movement of fabrics and lightness of material are recreated in metal and precious stones: movements, volumes, waist lines, pleats, the way fabric falls: all of this can be found in each a every piece of this entrancing collection.

I wanted to be an architect; as a couturier I have to follow the laws and principles of architecture. Christian Dior
