Watch: Stargaze with Dior to see the Rose des vents bib necklace
Written in the stars
A bit of astronomy is in order as Dior Joaillerie creative director Victoire de Castellane shoots for the stars in the maison's latest animated clip, aptly titled 'The Milky Way' to celebrate the in-store launch of the Rose des vents bib necklace. Armed with a telescope for scrying the heavens, the 2D render of de Castellane and Monsieur Dior are perched on the roof of the fine jewellery boutique at 30 Avenue Montaigne, on a night perfect for a spot of stargazing. So what shines in the dusky sky that would capture their combined attention?
Well, none other than more shiny Rose des vents jewellery, obviously. Within the nebula, the duo eyes a series of eight-pointed wind rose medallions dotting the sky, arranged into constellations symbolic to the maison, such as a bee and a rose. In this ethereal depiction of the collection, that sense of almost free-flowing suspension is likewise reflected in the fit and form of the bib necklace, displaying numerous Rose des vents charms linked by fine yellow gold chains, as if they were floating across the neck when worn. Crafted with varying sizes of the medallions in a rainbow of precious stones and glittering diamonds — that look just as stunning from its back, if you ever have the urge to wear it both ways — it's like you're really looking at a brilliant canvas of stars.
