DIOR J’ADORE EXCEPTIONAL EDITION BY VICTOIRE DE CASTELLANE

Fashion

Victoire de Castellane, the famous Parisian adornments fashioner who’s been enchanting everybody as the imaginative executive of Christian Dior‘s fine gems division for some, numerous years, has quite recently envisioned a mind blowing bottle for the fresh out of the plastic new’s J’adore Exceptional Edition, a brilliant flacon mixing eighteenth century plan thoughts with 21st century components.

This grand jug was uniquely intended to look like something that would have presumably been covered up inside a household item from the Court of Versailles, far from a more interesting’s eyes. It would appear that it’s suspended in time and space, mixing in convention and development just to prod our faculties as far as possible.

“The Versailles estate is a very strong reference in the creative world of Dior in general, and for J’adore in particular. It is also the theme of my latest luxury jewelry collection that draws inspiration from the decorative features of the château, at night, illuminated by the glow of candlelight. I imagined a perfume bottle had been found in a piece of furniture at the Court of Versailles, like a jewel or treasure hidden away for safe keeping. If J’adore had been created in the 18th century, I like to think it would have been like that, baroque, suspended in time and space.” – Victoire de Castellane

The strip brightening the amphora could rise above the universe of creative ability utilizing an extraordinary strategy, with a layer of silver put over a layer of rose gold. The two metals were fortified together before they were dunked into an oxidizing shower that darkens the silver, to include a unique touch of patina to this gem before you.

Moreover, every precious stone amphora is mouth-passed up the ace glassblowers at Baccarat, as just this prestigious gem glassmaker could have thought of such an enticing outcome to coordinate the scent. To finish everything off, Victoire de Castellane handwrites the name J’adore on each flacon.

“I think of fragrance as an expression of sensuality, much like jewelry. I started with the idea of a completely transparent bottle, as if there were only the perfume and the bow, as if the fragrance were motionless and undoing the precious ribbon would bring it to life. The ribbon is an essential feature of Dior style: it exudes sensuality by the rise and fall of its curves, by its very symbolism. To untie a ribbon is to undress. And take possession of what was bound by the ribbon. When you see a bow, you can imagine untying it. My work always contains an element of eternity that I convey by freezing the movement when it is at its most beautiful.” – Victoire de Castellane


Dior J'adore Exceptional Edition

Victoire de Castellane, the renowned Parisian jewelry designer who’s been charming everyone as the creative director of Christian Dior’s fine jewelry division for many, many years, has just imagined an incredible bottle for the brand’s new J’adore Exceptional Edition, a wonderful flacon blending 18th century design ideas with 21st century elements.

This majestic bottle was specially designed to look like something that would have probably been hidden inside a piece of furniture from the Court of Versailles, away from a stranger’s eyes. It looks like it’s suspended in time and space, blending in tradition and innovation only to tease our senses to the limit.

Dior J'adore Exceptional Edition

The ribbon decorating the amphora was able to transcend the universe of imagination using a special technique, with a layer of silver placed over a layer of rose gold. The two metals were bonded together before they were dipped into an oxidizing bath that blackens the silver, to add a special touch of patina to this jewel before you.

Furthermore, each crystal amphora is mouth-blown by the master glassblowers at Baccarat, as only this prestigious crystal glassmaker could have come up with such a seductive result to match the fragrance. To top it all off, Victoire de Castellane handwrites the name J’adore on each flacon.

Dior J'adore Exceptional Edition

Admittedly, Dior‘s J’adore is one of the most famous, signature perfumes out there. Now, it’s time for a new interpretation of it by none other than Victoire de Castellane, artistic Director for Dior Jewellery – to give it the haute couture dress it deserves.

The J’adore amphora is a precious showcase for an exceptional perfume. Although this object has already lent itself to various interpretations as well as jewellers’ and artists’ prestige editions, it is the first time that Victoire de Castellane, has provided her own interpretation of it. By stopping this eternal moment in its tracks, J’adore becomes a rare and precious jewel, of which only five are available worldwide. This object is both a jewel, and a showcase that is now carrying on the tradition of the Christian Dior Perfume House, by writing a new chapter on the art of bottling.

If J’adore had been created in the 18th century, I like to think it would have been like that, baroque, suspended in time and space.” – Victoire de Castellane
Created in the best Parisian Fine Jewellery ateliers, this rare edition uses a technique that combines blackened silver with rose gold on the two faces of the ribbon, in a way that emphasizes the golden color of the perfume. The fragrance and the metal thereby contrast in a play of colors and light. The Baccarat crystal amphora remains completely transparent, as though there was only the perfume, and a bow embellished with 10 pear cut diamonds and 30 round cut diamonds. It is as though the perfume were still, only coming to life when the precious ribbon is pulled undone.

“I think of fragrance as an expression of sensuality, much like jewelry.

The J’adore L’Or Édition d’Exception is available in only five 100 ml pieces worldwide. J’adore becomes a rare and precious gem that perpetuates the long tradition of Dior Fragrances with a new chapter in the art of the Dior bottle.


Dior J’adore amphora is a precious showcase for an exceptional perfume. For the first time Victoire de Castellane, artistic Director for Dior Jewellery, has provided her own interpretation of it. Inspired by 18th-century jewelry, Victoire de Castellane’s majestic flacon encapsulates the elegance of the Palace of Versailles. “I imagined having found a perfume bottle inside a piece of furniture from the Court of Versailles, in the way one might have hidden a jewel, a treasure one wished to keep safe.

If J’adore had been created in the 18th century, I like to think that it would have been like that, baroque, suspended in time and space,” the Creative Director of Dior Joaillerie explains. This special creation is the object of technical feats that combine tradition and innovation.
The ribbon decorating the amphora is produced using a technique whereby a layer of silver is placed over a layer of rose gold.

The two metals are worked separately then bonded together before being dipped into an oxidizing bath that blackens the silver while preserving the rose gold. This gives a jewel an antique look and reproduces a cradle-lit effect. As if frozen in movement, the bow requires precise and meticulous manipulation by the craftspeople, from polishing to stone setting.

Each crystal amphora is mouth-blown by the master glassblowers at Baccarat, perpetuating the close links the House has enjoyed with this prestigious crystal glassmaker since 1947.
Lastly, like a signature engraved on the gem of a flacon, Victoire de Castellane handwrites the name J’adore.

Dior is really making moves to step up their game. PurseBop has extensively covered Dior’s new Diorever bag, and believes it might just be the best bag. Other big changes for Dior include the appointment of new creative director, Maria Grazia Chiuri, Valentino’s past creative director. Chiuri is Dior’s first female creative director in its 70-year long history, and she is bound to bring some exciting, fresh energy to the line.

Dior is giving us more reasons to become infatuated by releasing new bags! Two new bags have been added to the Diorama line: The Diorama Club Bag and Diorama Satchel Bag.

The Diorama Club and Diorama Satchel debuted in the Fall/Winter 2016 collection. Both bags are re-creations of the iconic Diorama bag. Let’s take a look at the biggest differences…

The Diorama Club bag is smaller and slightly more square than the original Diorama. The Diorama Club has an oversized badge clasp with a contrasting  border. It can be carried over the shoulder or crossbody style.

Dior describes the Diorama Club as “the perfect evening bag” and the large badge is meant to make a statement.

The Diorama Satchel Bag has the same crest shape clasp and large cannage design motif as the original Diorama. However, the shape is slightly bigger, wider at the base, and  more trapezoidal like a traditional satchel bag. New features include double gussets on the side and adjustable strap. It can be carried over the shoulder or crossbody style.

In contrast to the original, sleek and modern Diorama, the Diorama Satchel is more ladylike and feminine.

Walk into any Dior boutique nowadays and you’ll be greeted with a huge selection of bags and SLGs, which was what happened when I walked into the store recently. Feeling slightly overwhelmed at first (and I mean this in a good way), very soon I was floating like a butterfly from display case to display case. There were bags galore, and even more SLGs, from wallets to small wristlets and everything else in-between.

One of the bags that I missed out on is this, which I’ll be definitely checking out this week. From Dior’s Fall 2016 collection, it’s the Diorama Satchel, a more casual take on the elegant Diorama that we are all now familiar with. Measuring 27.5 cm by 20 cm, it features gusseted sides with two main compartments in the interior, which are separated with a zip pocket that runs across the middle. Functional? Yes.

But more than function, it’s the detailing of the Diorama Satchel in this particular colour that most excites me. Firstly, it comes in grained calfskin, which is a leather that many of you know I have an extreme fondness for. Then it’s the tone-on-tone stitching, the tiniest of CDs engraved on the metal top handle and what makes this a satchel, the additional of a canvas shoulder sling that’s finished with leather on both ends.

Yes, it’s basically the Diorama meets schoolboy satchel, and this colour (is it Camel? Sand? Maybe even Wheat) is just stunning. Yes. Stunning. Wear the bag with or without the canvas sling, which also means you carry it one of 3 ways, across the body, over the shoulder or just via its slightly shorter metal top handle.

Priced at SGD5500, you’ll find this sporty-luxe beauty at Dior boutiques at ION Orchard, Marina Bay Sands and of course, Ngee Ann City. If this colour doesn’t work for you (oh, the travesty of it all), it also comes in Black, Grey and a deep greenish-blue they call Agave.

IMAGE: DIOR

If the bags in full leather ain’t your thing, you’ll also find half-exotics like this one in lizard, and something called Dior Print fabric that’s a throwback to its monogram days. Love that too, but more on that in another post. Soon. I promise.

BELLA HADID IS A SEXY '80S AEROBICS INSTRUCTOR IN THE LOVE ADVENT CALENDAR

Fashion

BELLA Hadid has started the Christmas countdown by filming a saucy video for the first day of the Love magazine advent calendar.

The Victoria’s Secret star is seen working up a sweat by performing an aerobics routine to mark the first day of December.

The saucy clip is sure to raise temperatures as the winter chill sets in ahead of the festive season.

Bella has slipped into a 1980s-style leotard to pump iron in the sweat-drenched clip.

It appears to be inspired by Eric Prydz’s saucy video for his 2004 single Call On Me.

She also sits on a rubber exercise ball, lifts weights and tries out yoga poses during the film, which was shot by Rankin.

In one scene she is also seen seductively munching on a banana, and smoking a cigarette.

The video, which is titled Aerobics, marks the first installment of the magazine's annual Christmas countdown.

It's Bella's fourth appearance in the star-studded digital advent calendar.

This year's will feature the cream of the entertainment world, featuring stars including Abbey Clancy, Daisy Lowe, Emily Ratajkowski, Heidi Klum, Kendall Jenner and Kim Kardashian.

Bella's model sister Gigi Hadid is also slated to make an appearance in the Christmas countdown.

upon us, Love Magazine has finally kicked off its advent calendar. Like any other advent calendar, it offers a new surprise every day until Christmas, but in this case, the treats are model- and celeb-starring videos. For day one, the mag starts out strong with a steamy workout vid starring Bella Hadid.

The model stretches, flexes and breaks a sweat in full '80s garb (though she was born in '96) wearing high-cut leotards, sweat bands, leg warmers et al. And her decade-appropriate beauty look consists of glittery colored eyeshadow and lip gloss, to top it all off.

In the short film, directed by Rankin, an oiled-up and well-tanned Hadid conducts the hottest workout plan we've ever seen. Here are some highlights:

She flaunts her curves on a yoga mat.

She does a dramatic hair flip on an exercise ball.

She stormed the stage in a triumphant debut at the Victoria's Secret annual fashion show in Paris on Wednesday evening. 
And Bella Hadid proved her star power once more as she was the first supermodel to pose for this year's LOVE Video Advent  - the iconic Christmas countdown which sees sizzling snaps from the world's fashion elite.
The 20-year-old supermodel certainly kicked off the calendar with a bang as she wowed in the clip, called Aerobics, directed by Rankin, and styled by Victoria Young, in which she sported a plethora of retro-inspired sportswear.
Bella oozed sex appeal in the clip which saw her contort into a bevvy of compromising positions to achieve the sexiest video possible to kick off the sixth year of the world famous calendar.
The incredible clip was filmed to the tune of Eric Prydz's 2004 hit Call On Me, which has become synonymous with saucy exercise scenes after the seductive music video caused stirs when it was first released 12 years ago.
