In a celebration of the house’s history, Dior has unveiled a new high jewelry bracelet. The luxury accessory was designed by Kim Jones and Victoire de Castellane as a tribute to Christian Dior. Made in white gold, diamonds, and two precious emeralds, the unique piece makes its debut at the French fashion house’s Dior FW22 menswear runway show.
Inspired by the Art Deco design style, the luxe offering features bold geometric links that are linked together to create a bracelet with two sections. The first section, which has ten links, is double-layered and is adorned with diamonds and emeralds. The second section, which only has eight links, is single-layered and simply sparkles with diamonds.
Together, the bracelet’s design features two Dior initials (in cursive) cut out of white gold to form an accentuated “CD” logo.
In keeping with established Kim Jones style, the most recent show from Louis Vuitton's French luxury house has a few pairings. In addition to this stunning new piece, the designer also collaborated with English shoe brand Grenson for a limited edition collection and even brought back his collaboration with American artist Jeff Koons.
Dior has always been a household name in the fashion industry. The house, which was founded by Christian Dior, has always been popular for its elegant and sophisticated pieces as well as its unique take on femininity and style.
The French luxury house continues to draw inspiration from its past collections with each new release. Among the many accessories that have garnered much attention over the years is the house’s high jewelry bracelets.
Early last year, Dior unveiled a limited-edition collection of gold bracelets which were crafted by Parisian jeweller Stephen Webster. The luxe offering incorporated the house’s iconic slim “CD” logo as well as the initials of Christian Dior.As far as Kim Jones’s collaborations are concerned, this stunning new piece is definitely one of his most ambitious.
