From the first show, Mr. Dior incorporated the architectural elements into the high-end dresses setting a permanent style and soul for his designs. Mr. Dior recounted: “I want to be an architect but I am a senior designer. I must follow the laws and rules of architecture. Therefore, every piece of fashion protect is a building.”
Victoire de Castellane inspired from this unique creative vision and created Archi Dior’s high-end jewellery collection. Each piece borrows the famous series or name of the dress that Mr. Dior used to build with his architectural attitude. He used the lines of the high-grade uniforms of the past to recreate the glittering lines of the eternal jewellery. This series pays tribute to the passion of Christian Dior for architectural design: throughout his life, this great designer is committed to applying architectural design principles adopted to high-end custom fashion. Create a distinct, architecturally-designed silhouette, and the three-dimensional shape seems to have no fear of gravity. Archi Dior is the connection of clothes, gems and metals.

Brands can find inspiration from history and draw on the essence of different works. More significant, is to have innovation. MILIEU DU SIÈCLE earing seems a little unsatisfactory. However, these will not stop the glory that the Archi Dior series brings to the brand. So, Dior is indeed a jewelry brand that worthy of collection. .
