Get a bird’s eye view of the Dior Haute Joaillerie “Les Jardins de la Couture” presentation at the Villa Erba on Lake Como, Italy, from the enchanting candlelit table setting for the gala dinner to the unveiling of jewelry-making masterpieces by Victoire de Castellane in a magical night-time setting, paired with couture looks by Maria Grazia Chiuri. As the evening unfolded, a breathtaking firework display illuminated the sky, echoing the sparkling creations, a tribute to Monsieur Dior’s love of gardens and couture.
To mark the unveiling of the Dior Haute Joaillerie Collection Les jardins de la Couture, the House organized an exceptional event on June 3, 2023, at Villa Erba on Lake Como. Presented during a poetic gala, the 170 pieces signed by Victoire de Castellane celebrate more than ever the natural world so dear to the founding-couturier.
A meeting of Dior universes, these precious creations were revealed alongside haute couture silhouettes dreamed up by Maria Grazia Chiuri, in a oneiric show. In the garden, two tableaux vivants spotlighted this fascinating artistic dialogue, bringing together the virtuosity of jewelry-making savoir-faire and that of couture.
A spellbinding spectacle – concluded with a majestic fireworks display – combining Parisian elegance and Italian dolce vita.
