CHILD’S PLAY

Red Magazine - - On the Radar -

Dior’s Granville col­lec­tion looks more like stolen jew­els from a nine-year-old’s doll set. Of course, we should have ex­pected no less from Vic­toire de Castel­lane, the in­fa­mous high-end jew­elry de­signer whose works have gone from con­tro­ver­sial and sub­limely psy­che­delic to just down­right trippy. Here, though a bit less out­landish yet still stray­ing from con­ven­tion, de Castel­lane bran­dished a rain­bow of aqua­marines, amethysts, beryls, and tan­zan­ites, their shapes form­ing no ob­vi­ous pat­tern and their ar­range­ment snub­bing sym­met­ri­cal rules. The name of the line is a nod to Chris­tian Dior’s home­town at the coast of Nor­mandy, as the col­lec­tion pays homage to child­hood’s joie de vivre, its en­joy­able may­hems em­bod­ied in the col­lec­tion’s many mul­ti­col­ored stones.
