Dior Joaillerie’s playful Rose des Vents collection evokes some of Christian Dior’s favourite things
uch of Christian Dior’s childhood was spent in a beautiful 19th-century villa on a cliff overlooking the town of Granville in Normandy, France. Built by a shipowner and named Villa les Rhumbs after the nautical term for the compass points of a wind rose, “rhumbs,” the beautiful home was decorated with wind rose motifs, which are evident in the mosaic tiles that line the entrance and appear on the floor of the study. Today, the wind rose the young Dior grew up with graces Dior Joaillerie’s Rose des Vents collection, which also evokes his favourite flower, the rose, and his lucky charm, the star. The collection comprises necklaces, bracelets and rings in white, yellow and rose gold featuring a medallion decorated on one side with a wind rose set with a diamond. On the other side is mother-of-pearl, lapis lazuli, turquoise, onyx or pink opal.
