Victoire De Castellane, the creative director of Christian Dior’s fine jewelry division has an eclectic menagerie of inspirational sources. She is an ardent lover of popular culture, from plastic flowers, to anime and Disney cartoons. Mixed with the modern, Castellane has an appreciation of France’s historical past and the Parisian tradition of Haute Couture which she integrates within her jewellery.
Typical characteristics of Castellane’s work are big, bold artificial colours, asymmetry (particularly in her earrings which are rarely matching) and an inflated sense of proportions. These qualities are cultivated to create a sense of childish playfulness. Castellane wants clients to feel like they are dressing up. She intends her jewellery to contain the joy of dressing up in your mothers jewels as a child.
In 2019 Dior unveiled ‘Gem Dior’, a collection of 99 pieces designed Castellane to celebrate her 20 year anniversary with the Parisian Fashion House.
