From haute joaillerie to haute horlogerie: The La Mini D de Dior Rose des vents
What lucky stars are made of
Dior purists are intimately familiar with Monsieur Dior's lucky charm and his favourite flower but for ye of the uninitiated, the famed motif behind the Rose des vents is actually a combination of star and rose — the charm and flower, respectively — reinterpreted by Dior Joaillerie's Victoire de Castellane into the signature eight-pointed wind rose. Featured as the lynchpin on every piece of Rose des vent jewellery, the wind rose has now transitioned onto the house's haute horlogerie, with the La Mini D de Dior bearing the iconic symbol.
Brought to life on delicate 19mm-sized dials crafted from mother-of-pearl and malachite, the petite watches are exceptionally eye-catching with its rice shaped bezel and a diamond-set crown. Centred by the wind rose stretching across the watch face like a guiding compass, the refined design codes are complemented by elegant satin straps to echo the feminine identity of the La Mini D de Dior. At once playful and poetic, we can totally see these beautiful timepieces adding on to your Rose des vents parure, rocking the stacking trend alongside your favourite wind rose-bedecked bracelets and rings.
The La Mini De d Dior Rose des vents collection is available at Dior boutiques.
