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.
