DIOR Grand Bal Miss Dior

FavoriteLoading

Dior’s latest Grand Bal Miss Dior watch collection brings together the gentle beauty of Dior’s flowers and the timeless luxury of the timepiece brand.


The Dior Grand Bal collection has recently unveiled two new pieces inspired by the magic and beauty of flowers.

These two new “Dior Grand Bal Miss Dior” timepieces are equipped with the unique “Dior Inversé 11 1/2” caliber, which features an oscillating weight placed on top of the dial. For these pieces, per the floral theme, they embellished with beautiful flower petals.

With this movement, the weight and the dial take on the allure of a blossoming flower – one in shades of pink recalling the joy of spring, and the second in blue tones echoing the nighttime reflection of moonlight on petals.

These light floral motifs are set off with sparkling diamonds on the bezel. These 3D effect petals give life to the timepiece and evoke the charms of Christian Dior’s famed garden. The matching strap lining and pink or blue sapphire crystal case-backs are final, personal details only known to the wearer.

These two pieces are a fine tribute to Monsieur Dior’s passion for flowers as well as the famous “Miss Dior” dress, one of the Maison’s first Haute Couture dresses. They are available in a limited edition of 88 pieces.

DIOR WATCHES: INTRODUCING THE DIOR VIII MONTAIGNE CLAIRE DE LUNE

 

 

Inspired by the different phases of the moon, these three additions to the Dior VIII Montaigne collection take time pieces to the celestial heavens. The lunar patterns are exquisitely drawn on the dial with gold threads and diamonds, and the result is extremely cool. My absolute favorite? The filigreed elegance of the crescent model.This is an amazing marriage of craftsmanship with technical innovation. What a fine tribute to Monsieur Dior’s passion for the starry firmament.

Set off with a black alligator strap with a yellow gold prong buckle set with round diamonds, the watches are available in a limited edition of 88 pieces.

THE PERFECTION IN IMPERFECTION: [Lucifer Vir Honest]

LUNA SCAMUZZI”S JEWELRY CREATION IS OPEN, CREATIVE & COMPELLING. HER AESTHETIC IS DIFFERENT THEN OTHERS OF OUR TIME, AND HER BACKGROUND IS TOO.

We had a chance to talk to Luna Scamuzzi of Lucifer Vir Honestus about what drives her jewelry creation. She’s an incredible woman. Formerly an architect, she brings a shape-and-structure driven eye to her work, but has dispensed totally with the strict rules of architecture and allowed herself to explore the boundaries of jewelry freely and without many of the aesthetic constraints of her contemporaries. She’s like an Alice in Wonderland. Luna – whose name itself grounds her to natural forces – is inspired completely by nature, looking to the stones she’s working with to lead her to their best possible presentation. She follows her instincts and the deep origins of her designs is reflected in her work.

Sometimes you fall in love with something and just can’t shake it – which is what happened to me with these splendid earrings.

I’ve been waiting for this earrings while they’ve traveled all around the world with their designer, and I’ll finally receive them in January. [ Materials: Rose & black gold aquamarine]

Since I was so enchanted, I figured I would ask Federica Rettore where she got the inspiration for these, but her answer intrigued me even further! “Eleganza e leggerezza  ispirati alle onde che si rifrangono sulla battigia e portano tesori in superficie dalle profondità del mare.” – I started to translate this into English but realized how difficult it would be to translate such poetry.

The Italian language definitely has its “fascino” (charm), and it’s no wonder that the language has its share of admirers. But here’s my best effort at describing her inspiration: “Elegance and lightness inspired by waves that refract on the shoreline and bring the treasures from the bottom of the sea to the surface.

Still, not satisfying. Federica is a poet of words and jewels. Her pieces make me daydream. We are lucky to have so many talented young artists around us. As far as Federica goes, her pieces are all handmade in Italy, one of a kind, and can be engraved just for you. Feel free to reach out for more information.

HOW I LOVELOVELOVE  La Mini D de DIORr SATINE….

 

 

 

The intricate stiches of the Milanese mesh steel bracelet invoke the supple threads of a satin ribbon. And as ever with the artist Eleri Mills you can see how the landscape of her rural Welsh childhood has inspired her work: the threads here recall the summer fields of Powys, where she was born, and import them into a watchmaker’s vernacular. From afar, they look like a painting. Close up, the detailing will take your breath away. The watch’s delicate ornamental stone dials are beautifully embellished with gold bezel and crown. In short, this timepiece is a beautiful marriage of Swiss watchmaking expertise with Dior fine jewelry.

Here I wear the watch with a Chaumet Ring Serp from Terres d’Or collection: an oval-cut yellow sapphire weighing 12.36 carats from Ceylon round yellow sapphires, lacquer, and brilliant-cut diamonds.

Happy 100%

People talk a lot about being happy, seeking happiness, what makes them happy…but if we were to ask you, how would you reply? We presume the question would prompt some silent contemplation, going into the wilds of your mind and deep into your heart, asking yourself a hundred questions in the course of a few minutes. But then, the answer we most often find simplifies things: it focuses in on the few things in life that bring us joy. Often, we can leave the rest behind.

I’ve been asking myself this question lately too, steering away from big, glamorous goals and looking instead at the little things that bring me joy in my daily routine. I’ve found that my beauty routine in particular brings me a lot of simple joy, which I think can be the case for a lot of women. One comforting thing about it is that it makes us feel beautiful!

Here are a few things from my beauty routine that bring me joy.

Chantecaille

I discovered this brand quite recently but have fallen in love. They make beautiful makeup products, but I’m also very drawn to their brand philosophy: naturals over synthetics, conservation over all else, and offering beautiful products. I especially love their Rose de Mai face oil. I follow it up with some tinted moisturizer and follow it up with their Cheek Gelee for a friendly, natural look.

Tom Ford

For me, eyes are key – and Tom Ford is a master of eye products. He makes a couple of items that are central to my routine. I always start with his eye base, which makes shadow stay longer and brightens the overall eye area. And the Tom Ford Eyeshadow Quad in Brown has all of the right colors – they work together perfectly! You know how usually if you buy a set there’s a color or two that you don’t use? Not the case with this quad. It’s perfect!

Nars

No beauty list is complete without a mention of Nars. I particularly adore their bronzers – it’s just a great and versatile product – and their blushes have become iconic, but their body oils are sometimes overlooked but also very special.

In the end, being 100% happy is about what you do for yourself. Treat your body with love and respect no matter what.
